How to switch between Azerty and Qwerty

posted on Wednesday, June 6, 2012

We all have those glorious moments where you spent five minutes smashing your keyboard wondering why all of the sudden you seem to have become incapable of typing... until you realise that somewhere down the road, you  managed to switch your Azerty keyboard to Qwerty or vice versa.

And then you have to Google a solution for the problem which is unpossible to do without typos :) So, for future reference, the solution can be found below:

The key is that you can set a key sequence to switch between input languages. Read: switch between all installed input languages. By default this is set to one of the key sequences below, but this is a customizable setting so yours might be different.

- Press Ctrl and Shift simultaneously
- Press Alt and Shift simultaneously

You can check these settings in the control panel:

Control Panel > Region and Language > Keyboards and Languages tab > Change keyboards... > Advanced Key Settings > Hot keys for input languages

If a key sequence is set but that sequence doesn't seem to work, you should check how many input languages are installed. You can find these on the General tab.

This should szitch the settings right qround8

Could be useful, right?
