What is the fastest way to switch between QWERTY and Dvorak on a Windows 7 Pro machine, by say, a key combination?

A different approach, which may or may not be suitable for your suituation, is to use a keyboard that has a physical Dvorak/QWERTY switch. – Psychonaut Mar 21 '15 at 13:07

Yes there is!

Launch Control Panel > Region and Language > Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, then the Change keyboards.... button.

From here, click the Advanced Key Settings tab and you can set a shortcut for switching input keyboards.
