After having added a second keyboard layout to Windows, I wanted to turn off its hotkeys to switch between them, like Left Alt+Shift, and Ctrl+Shift. I knew about the Text Services and Input Languages dialog but in my current version of Windows 10 (1909, build 18363.1082), I simply couldn't find it. It is this dialog:

Text Services and Input Languages dialog in Windows

Although I found what I need via:

rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL input.dll,,{C07337D3-DB2C-4D0B-9A93-B722A6C106E2}

I would like to know how to call it up without having to know that command, like when I am at someone else's computer, or on a "vanilla" Windows install.

I searched the Windows 10 Settings as well as Control Panel. It apparently used to be here:

Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Change input methods > Advanced settings

but I don't see that now, even after hunting in the new names, like Region.

Am I blind? Can anyone show me the GUI way to navigate to this dialog in the current version of Windows?

  • There is an applet named "Region"

In Windows 10 you can find it in:

Settings > Devices > Typing > Advanced keyboard settings > Input language hot keys.

(A bit long, but it gets there.)

  • In Windows 11, it's Settings -> Time & Language -> Typing -> Advanced keyboard settings -> Input language hot keys.
