I tried to make myself a German QWERTY layout by just switching the z and y key on my keyboard and creating a fitting layout with the Microsoft Keyboard Layout creator since there is no native support.
That works just fine for text input, but not in any other context. Shortcuts like Ctrl-Z and Ctrl-Y are now flipped since the layout apparently doesn't apply to them. I can input text correctly in the same application, but keyboard shortcuts seem to get treated differently. same goes for games, there's a bunch of them that use ZXCV as unrebindable substitutes for the ABXY keys on a controller. Just imagine using YXCV with a QWERTY layout, it's not very fun.
I thought the reason for this was that the applications use some kind of direct input from the keyboard that doesn't even go through windows, but that can't be the case since I can use the standard US QWERTY layout with no complications regarding the z and y key.
Is it just impossible to create a layout for Win 10 in MSKLC that works properly or am I missing something? I found lots of topics on getting MSKLC to run it all on Windows 10, but none on this specific issue.
