    keyboard hotkeys with ctrl partially working



    Hello
    Just installed win 10
    I have 4 input languages: English, Hebrew, French France, French Canadian multi
    I can rotate the input with shift leftAlt and have access to these languages in sequence
    But when I assigned ctrl hot keys (0,1,2,3 in the above language order) to jump directly to a language, not all of them work, but only English and French
    ctrl0 switches to english
    ctr1 does nothing
    ctrl2 switches to French
    ctrl3 does nothing
    Could someone suggest how to fix this? I never encountered this issue with win vista/7/8/8.1

    Your help is very much appreciated

    Hi g2c

    This nirsoft utility may be able to tell you if those keys are already assigned.

    Saw a couple of post where nVidia experience had some of the CRTL keys mapped.

    Thanks Ken,
    Nirsoft does not find any used crtl+<number>
    I thought it might be chrome who's using this combination for tab switching but even after uninstalling it (with revo) the issue persisted. Even with just English with ctrl+0 and Hebrew is ctrl+1, only ctrl+0 works: I can go Hebrew with shift+left alt and back to English with ctrl+0. Also, the hotkey ctrl+1 becomes unassigned after reboot

    Do other combos work? like Ctrl+5, 6 etc? Some laptops can have Ctrl and Fn reversed or Fn sticks...

    Does you Asus have nVidia? Did you look in GeForce experience.

    Would be interested in AndreTen idea. Do the other number keys work?

    The shoth answer is NO
    Test results with two languages: English and Hebrew; leftAlt+shift set as sequential switch
    I can set English to any ctrl+<num> and it will always switch correctly from Hebrew to English (and disable chrome tab switch for that <num>

    No ctrl+<num> or ctrl+shift+<num> or (with disabled sequential) leftAlt+shift+<num> allows to switch to Hebrew. The only mean available to me to have Hebrew is the leftAlt+shift sequential shift

    The long answer is that Surprisingly, yesterday I could switch *once* to Hebrew with ctrl+<a num which I don't remember>

    Strange that you can assign key for English and not others..

    Check please, that you don't have any options under "Ease of Access" check - Keyboard only (sticky keys). Also check if switching works with Chrome closed. If not, try removing and adding other languages.

    First my apology: after having failed to rename my home folder from windows assigned stupid name to my own I reset the computer to 8.1 and this is my os now. Before the abortive installation of win10, I had chrome and 4 languages on 8.1, all directly selectable with ctrl+<num>, num=0..3

    I have no sticky keys but only "hear a sound on caps/num/screen lock"

    When I assign a num to a language, Chrome does not react to this shortcut (does not jump to the corresponding tab), when the hotkey (language switch) works or when it does not work.

    I tried to add French and it works on any <num>, just like English

    Tried Georgian - does not work on any <num> just like Hebrew though it's LTR

    Finally I found: I need to "add input method" whatever it means and then it works for Canadian and Hebrew just as I want.

    Thanks you very much Andre, your questions did guide me
