  3. Keyboard shortcuts, Windows 10

    There is a shortcut (Alt + Shift) which changes the keyboard say from English (United Kingdom) to English (United States) and vice versa. I play a game which involves using the Alt and Shift keys during gameplay. Later when I am using a text editor like
    say Notepad, after typing for a while (one finger typing so I need to look at the keyboard when typing) I look at the screen and find some of the characters are incorrect. While playing the game it has changed my selected keyboard setting.

    My question is can I disable the Alt + Shift shortcut?

    WINDOWS 10 - How To DISABLE The ALT+SHIFT Keyboard Shortcut

    List custom keyboard shortcuts - Alt + Shift + T

    Hello,
    I found a VERY useful thread from cniggeler with a script by Frederik Long - hoping they'll get tagged here somehow, since I can't ping either of them directly; the script is below. I ran it successfully, but it found nothing. I've got a keyboard shortcut
    for Alt + Shift + T on one of my laptops that is pulling up some screen-shot tool that I've never used before instead of the menu access for a different software that works on every other device I use.

    So, does the script below work for any keyboard shortcut combo or is there some reference to the OP's Ctrl+Alt+U hotkey shortcut?

    More simply, anyone have any idea what screen-shot snipping tool is using Alt+Shift+T? I've googled it to frustration, hence this question.

    Thanks for any helpful guidance.

    Code:
    '--------------------------------------
    
    'Recursively find the Ctrl+Alt+U hotkey
    
    '6 Sep 2019 FNL
    
    '--------------------------------------
    
    Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.Filesystemobject")
    
    Set oWshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    
    sStart = oWshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%\Desktop")
    
    bFound = False
    
    Process sStart
    
    If Not bFound Then MsgBox "Sorry, no shortcut found containing this hotkey", 48
    
    Sub Process(sFolder)
    
        For Each oFile In oFSO.GetFolder(sFolder).Files
    
            If LCase(Right(oFile.Name, 4)) = ".lnk" Then
    
                Set oLink = oFSO.OpenTextFile(oFile.Path)
    
                sData = oLink.Read(70)
    
                If Mid(sData, 65,1) = Chr(85) And Mid(sData, 66,1) = Chr(6) Then
    
                    MsgBox oFile.Path, 64, "Shortcut finder"
    
                    bFound = True
    
                End If
    
            End if
    
        Next
    
        
    
        For Each oFldr In oFSO.GetFolder(sFolder).SubFolders
    
            Process oFldr.Path
    
        Next
    
    End Sub
