What is the hotkey to switch between keyboard layouts in windows, while in some application? I tried CTRL+shift and ALT+shift but it didn't work.

    Try Left Alt+Shift. Also specify your version of Windows. – Atzmon Oct 3 '16 at 6:27

    Alt+Shift - Windows 7 and Win button + Space Win 8 and 10 – User552853 Oct 3 '16 at 6:29

On Windows 10 press Win + Space to cycle through the languages. You may need to press multiple times until you see the overlay.


For me, it's CTRL+SHIFT to switch between keyboard layouts within the same language culture. I never set this manually, and I'm using Windows 10.
