  • Win 8 Keeps Switching Keyboard Layouts

    Hi All,

    I'm running Win 8 Ent x64.

    I have 2 keyboard layouts setup - qwerty & dvorak - that I switch between:
    - ENG US
    - ENG DV

    I have qwerty setup as the default while I continue to learn dvorak.
    Am using Australian English.

    Win 8 seems to switch between them as and when it feels like it.
    I'm aware of the WIN+SPACE key combination and am 100% sure I am not accidentally using this combination (is pretty hard to accidentally do this..).

    I'm seeing this probably 6 or 7 times a day.

    Anyone know what would be causing this?

    Thanks!

    Did you follow these steps when adding the Dvorak keyboard? http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

    2 2 1 1 2

      I'd already setup multiple keyboard layouts, what I have done in an attempt to resolve this is change it from 1 language with 2 keyboard layouts to 2 languages (AU & UK), each with their own keyboard layout (QWERTY & Dvorak respectively) to see if that will resolve the issue.

      Will see how I go today.

        Ok, so the 2 languages, each with it's own keyboard, seems to not have the same issue, I recommended this setup if you use 2 keyboard layouts.

        Hopefully MS will fix the bug.
