    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.

Hi there. Although I don't use the metro screen very often I sometimes use the Apps screen in W8.1 -- the Languages of some of the APPS tiles don't change after you've switched a language say back to English -- having changed all the settings back to display say in English again. For example...
