  1. Windows 10 keeps changing my keyboard layout


    While using one program, and one program only, Windows 10 will randomly change my keyboard layout.


    I use a Logitech wireless keyboard with "English US" layout and my laptop has a different layout. The problem is windows will insist on going back to my laptop keyboard's layout every once in a while (and I am sure I'm not pressing Ctrl+Shift by accident)


    I did my research on this topic and so far there is no solution apart from people saying "use a keyboard with the same layout" or even "press Ctrl + Shift" to change the layout. The issue is: if someone had defined one particular setting to their computer we should expect the OS to keep this setting.


    And I believe the real question is, how to fix this bug?

    :)
