I regularly switch between US english and danish keyboard layouts using Alt+Shift.

On Windows 7 I simply had an english and a danish configuration and everything worked.

On Windows 10 the english configuration has now been split in two: English with US keyboard and english with DA keyboard. The second one is useless to me. Worse, Alt+Shift does not toggle between all three configurations, so I now have to use the mouse to switch.

How do I get rid of the extra configuration or at least make Alt+Shift work for me?

  • Do you see the two keyboard layouts (US keyboard and DA keyboard) in the Settings>Time & Language>Rigion & Language, click on English and you'll see Options. In there under the Keyboards section what do you see? – Yisroel Tech Feb 16 '17 at 7:24

You can manage your language configurations in Settings > Time & language > Region and language. There you can add/remove your language configurations.

And instead of Alt+Shift you'll have to use Win+Space. This is default starting Windows 8 I think.

  • Alt+Shift actually still works. I just needed to remove an unnecessary configuration. – Jørgen Fogh Mar 4 '17 at 20:38

It turned out that I needed to remove a "keyboard" configuration, which was part of the US English language configuration in Settings > Time & language > Region and language.
