I'm using Linux for years and now I have to work with Windows XP at work. The problem is I don't like default shortcuts for switching keyboard input languages: CTRL+SHIFT and ALT+SHIFT. And I'd really like to change the shortcut to the one I'm using in Linux SHIFT+SHIFT. I've googled for a while, played with registry but have not found any solution. So, can I assign custom (SHIFT+SHIFT) shortcut for switching keyboard input languages?

Thanks in advance, Andriy

You could use AutoHotKey!

If (A_PriorHotKey = A_ThisHotKey and A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 500)
    Send ^{LShift}
    Send {LShift}

That doesn't solve the fact that you can change the language by pressing Ctrl+Shift/Alt+Shift, which is pretty normal to press accidentally. – Zequez Jun 18 '14 at 19:53
