I use two keyboard layouts and want to be able to switch between them regularly. Ctrl+Shift switches between them, but in some applications I need to use both keys for other shortcuts (e.g. Google Chrome's Ctrl+Shift+N) and the Windows shortcut sometimes interferes. The Win+Space shortcut also switches between them and suits my purposes fine. Is there a way to disable the Ctrl+Shift shortcut in Windows?
