    Sometimes Problem switching between Languages on Windows 8

    OS: Windows 8.1 Pro.
    Problem: Sometimes I cannot switch between 2 languages.
    I use left (shift+Alt).

    It "fixed" only when I reinstall the language that I cannot switch into or when I re-log into windows.

    I had the same problem In windows 7 and I fixed it by creating new keyboard combination to switch between languages. But I cannot find the Article how to do it on windows 8 pro.
