Language keyboard keep switching

Hi all

We use a VDI environment based on Citrix products.

The VDI is based on Windows Server 2008R2 with desktop experience.

The OS is installed multilingual (English and Dutch).

Our users are facing some very strange behaviour.

Keyboard languange settings change all the time.
We tried everything like remove the English keyboard and force the Dutch register keyboard, but nothing works.

At this point there is that one (Dutch) keyboard, but still the English appears in the keyboard language bar, but
When we open the language bar settings it has no reference to English either.

Please help us this annoying case.

  • My Apple Smart Keyboard (Azerty) switches to Qwerty when I select the UK English keyboard

    I bought an iPad Pro 9'7 and until yesterday, I have not used the Smart Apple, that the native Apple keyboard keyboard in IOS. I'm leaving in a country speaking French, so I'm used to the QWERTY keyboard, and the Smart QWERTY keyboard did not yet, until recently. I just bought my Smart Keyboard QWERTY, which is now available. I run immediately in the keyboard configuration problems.

    With the native IOS software keyboard, I installed 3 keyboards: French, Dutch and English British and I've set up Dutch and British English for QWERTY. It has worked well. I was able to take advantage of the spell checking in all languages, while keeping the AZERTY keyboard layout. I am constantly moving between these languages, while it was important for me to be able to switch between languages, while keeping the Azerty layout

    On my new Smart Azerty keyboard, I can easily switch between languages using the button 'globe' on the left side of the keyboard, but as soon as I switch to British English or Dutch, the keyboard will automatically switch to the Qwerty. I checked my settings of the iPad has not changed: Dutch and English British are always set to Azerty. If I'm getting confused now.

    Of course, I could stick the french language as a framework for my keyboard, the smart keyboard would retain its built in QWERTY layout, but I would miss the spell check option.

    Any suspicion, the solution or work around it?

    Simply set French as the physical keyboard for English and Dutch in settings > general > keyboard > hardware keyboards.

  • HP keyboard shortcut, interfere with language keyboard configuration

    I use a foreign language keyboard which uses rt-Alt-s as a special character, but instead, it evokes the popup to HP support information. How can I get rid of him?

    Hmm, if you 'place to open the file' can you do a right click and properties? Sorry I don't know another way to disable this shortcut key... There might be a regedit, but I sure can't find it.

  • How to set up a Korean language keyboard?

    When this computer was installed with Windows 7, in the first place, the "Korean input language" has been voluntarily excluded by the installer.

    Now I can not find or add the Korean language input keyboard in Control Panel > region and language > keyboard and languages.

    How can I add Korean keyboard again in this computer?


    I understand that you can not change the layout of the key Board on key in Korean, as the input language was excluded by the installer, is that OK?

    I apologize for the inconvenience that you have posted since the language has been excluded during the time of installation, you may need to re download the language separately and install it.

    Please provide additional information for a better understanding of the issue.

    1. what version of windows are you using?

    2. any changes to the copy of Windows before installation, when you say excluded by the installer?

    3. What were the recent changes of hardware or software that are performed on the computer before the question?

    Please follow the links below to solve the problem.

    Method 1

    Download the required language pack.

    Download languages for Windows, Get the languages for Windows 7 and Windows Vista

    Language packs

    Method 2

    Once the language pack is installed, change the layout of the key board.

    How to change your keyboard type             


    Note: The steps to change the keyboard layout are more similar among all windows products.

    Change your keyboard type

    If you are still facing problems after the installation of the language packs successfully, however the issue of keyboard layout changes then continue,

    Method 3

  • Windows 8 keep switching between screens

    Not "app mail" problem as shown in 'windows under heading' but no problem selected in the list for me to choose. Microsoft issue again.

    Windows 8 keep switching between windows. Word and internet or even just internet screen goes by the United Nations, highlighting the window, then 10 seconds later highlights the window again.

    Even while typing on this issue, it happens, and words and letters get spleen and loose spacing between words.

    Does the same thing when you type in a Word document, even if nothing else is running.

    I'm gone in "Configuration", 'change pc settings', 'general', off "allow to switch between recent applications" and turned off "when I drag from the left edge etc." but always keeps switching between windows.

    I removed all the 'apps' as well.

    It is not do it in "safe mode" cannot run what whether in 'safe mode' obviously, so it is useless.

    Nothing in Windows can do, so make sure you follow what you install and remove any element t - it.  If you see happen, feel free to post back and I'll work with you.

    Microsoft is no not any product that activates applications even if you do not touch the computer.  It may even be a virus.

  • This may seem like a strange question, but im trying to encode two buttons Flash Adobe, next and previous, however, when I put the thumb to the next scene and play on the next button and the previous scene and play on the previous button, it keeps switchi

    This may seem like a strange question, but im trying to encode two buttons Flash Adobe, next and previous, however, when I put the thumb to the next scene and play on the next button and the previous scene and play on the previous button, it keeps switching autour.

    If you have symbols of button on the stage to the next and previous, each of these symbols has an instance name with a listener event attached to it. The event listener is linked to a mandate. You can have a single event point to a function. So for example, if you have a next button and a click event that points to a function that says something like nextFrame(); and then you want to use the next button to point to a function that says something like nextScene(); you will need to use another instance of this next button and have this different instance to use a different event handler to point to a different function. Who help me?

  • How can disable switch between different input languages (= keyboard languages) by pressing the Alt + Shift keys? __

    Although I can now perform steps

    1. On the start menu, choose Control Panel.

    2. In Control Panel, select regional and Language Options.

    3. In the Regional And Language Options dialog box tab, under Text Services and input languages, click details.

    4. In the text Services and input, in the Preferences section languages, dialog box click on the key parameters.

    5. In the dialog box advanced key settings, click Change Key Sequence.

    6. In the change Key Sequence dialog box, clear the switch input languages check box, and click OK.

    7. In the advanced key settings dialog box, click OK.

    8. In the text Services and input languages dialog box, click OK.

    9. In the Regional And Language Options dialog box, click OK.

      But I need some settings registry keys to do the trick above to me, because it is difficult to do it on the number of PCs that requires users to restrict the swith between input languages.
      No idea or help is greatly appreciated.

      Thank you in advance.

    I found the place where exactly this may be small :).

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Toggle]
    "Hotkey" = "1".
    'Language Hotkey' = '3 '.
    'Shortcut page layout' = '2 '.

    Change the value of "Language Hotkey" accordingly.

    1 sequence of button enabled; Use Left ALT + SHIFT to switch between locales.
    2 key activated sequence; Use CTRL + SHIFT to switch between locales.
    3 invalid key sequences.
    4 If the default locale is Thai, the grave accent key activates / deactivates the input locale. otherwise the keystrokes are disabled.

    Another problem is that it sits under HKCU as well, same as if I pack this setting with MSI, it won't have a any use to me. Since then, installation is done using MSI localadmin account and HKCU is associated with the current session. If a new user who connects to this settting does not apply, and even if it rises "access denied" :(

    Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
    Thank you.

  • ; key does not work in foreign language keyboard layouts


    I have been using international keyboards such as the provisions of German, Spanish and Portuguese keyboard for many years.  I have implemented mappings to switch between languages and you can quickly type in the language that I need.

    However, yesterday and today, all of a sudden; key stopped working on my international keyboards.  In English, I can type; as many times as I want.  But when I switch to German, the key o (English; key) does not work.  Spanish N does not work.  This is - when I hold it down, I can make it work:

    NNNNNNN and it spits out a long line of characters, and I can remove backwards to get only one of them.

    How boring!  I can't find any other articles on this topic.

    Thank you!


    Thanks Frederik,

    I took a look at this thread and realized that my user profile is damaged.  I created a new Windows user and tried to use the German keyboard here and it worked fine.

    Too bad, I really don't want to mess with my files.  Maybe, I'll just buy an external hard drive, so such things don't affect me as well.

    Thank you!

    When I use the keyboard Viewer in the Korean language, each letter is underlined and then immediately replaced by the next letter I type, making me unable to type all the words.

  • Change language keyboard icon is not displayed


    recently, after having updated my mac to el Captain when I change my keyboard with the shortcut Ctrl + space I don't get an icon in the middle of my screen indicating which language of keyboard I am pass.

    It's very frustrating because I hit a large number of documents in several languages such as Japanese, Korean and Chinese.

    If anyone knows if there is a setting for that option or is this a bug where I have to reinstall my mac, I would be grateful one since the response.

    Thank you very much.

    In El Capitan that the default shortcut has been changed to control more space, so try that.  You should be able to change it to what you want via system preferences/shortcuts/keyboard.

  • Keyboard, keeping for Satellite M30X clip

    Anyone know where I can get a replacement retaining clip for a laptop keyboard? Its a small band of white plastic that fits into the connector of the keyboard ribbon cable to keep in place. It has two legs tiny ends which locate in the connector to secure it but one of my friends broke (due to having to have the socket repaired several times - it's a design on the M30X error).

    Also, I tried I said I want to buy a motherboard full, because the clip is not available separately, but that seems a little stupid - the part cost probably less than a can of coke on his own and I assumed it would be something that is easily damaged or lost if repairs are carried out.

    See you soon,.
