    Switching Keyboard Language with Windows + Spacebar


    Hey All,

    I am constantly infuriated by the switching between keyboard with Windows Key + Spacebar. I have tried everything I can think of to disable it, including googling and searching these forums... to no avail.

    I need to have both languages on my computer, but I constantly accidentally hit the shortcut and switch languages inadvertently. Any help for this?

    Cheers,
    Sarah
