    Removing windows Control-shift shortcut


    Hello,

    I use Mathematica A LOT, and almost all the shortcuts involve a Ctrl + Shift combination. However, the windows shortcut to switch your keyboard layout is Ctrl + Shift, and I use multiple layouts but do not often switch between them (and cannot remove them for some reason). This has caused considerable frustration. Is there a way to disable the Windows Ctrl + Shift shortcut?

    Thanks!

    Notice that Switch Input Language and Switch Keyboard Layout can't have the same sequence. To avoid using CTRL + SHIFT you can for instance set Switch Input Language to Grave Accent and Switch Keyboard Layout to Left Alt + SHIFT.
