    Hot key for changing languages (Win+Spacebar) disabled?

    After the latest update, I notice that the Win+Spacebar hot key no longer works, and when I go to configure the language bar, it is not even an option any more. Am I missing something?

    AFAIK, Win+Space combination has never been listed as a user-selectable option for switching languages. It is a "built-in" combination for the integrated Windows 8/10 language indicator (the one that says "ENG" instead of "EN"). It is supposed to work always, unconditionally, regardless of what other combination you select.

    What I don't immediately know is what is supposed to happen if you switch from the new integrated language indicator back to the classic XP/Windows 7-style dockable language bar (the one that says "EN"). Is that supposed to disable Win+Space combo or not?

    So, are you using the old-style language bar on your computer? If so, this might be the reason why Win+Space no longer works.

    I have no idea how I reverted to an earlier language bar setting, since I certainly did not go through those steps myself. Could be with the latest Logitech mouse software... Anyway, how do I get back to the Windows 10 version? Reversing the process from the link you sent is not that obvius.

    I discovered the problem. My Logitech mouse file was updated, but a shut down and a few minutes wait fixed everything.
