    Math Input Panel is stealing keyboard shortcuts from Word 365 !!!


    I make VERY extensive use of bulleted lists, and when I copy them from one file to another, it is very often necessary to do a global adjustment of indentation of the list bullets using Ctrl-M or Ctrl-Shift-M.

    But all of a sudden, something called a Math Input Panel is stealing my Ctrl-Shift-M keyboard shortcut. Searching the internet for advice on how to uninstall Math Input Panel, I read that it is part of the Tablet PC Components package which supposedly can be disabled in the Windows Features dialog box, simply by unchecking it. But in the updated version of Windows 10 I have, the checkbox for Tablet PC Components has disappeared, so this is no longer configurable.

    Is there a way to **directly** recover the previous functionality of Ctrl-Shift-M in Word 365 without Windows 10 intercepting the keystrokes and forcing me to us Math Input Panel?

    Thanks.

    Maybe an earlier post on this Forum about the Math Input Panel may have help?

    Dism solution didn't work


    Thank you very much for the link. That post definitely attempted to address the problem I'm having but the recommended solution did not work.

    I ran the Dsim fix as described above:

    Code:
    Dism /online /add-capability /capabilityname:MathRecognizer~~~~0.0.1.0


    And then I confirmed the presence of Math Recognizer using the recommended command

    Code:
    Dism /online /get-capabilityinfo /capabilityname:MathRecognizer~~~~0.0.1.0
    
    
    And then I rebooted. But I **still** do not see Tablet PC Components in the Windows Features dialog. Mine looks exactly like the one posted above.

    What do I do to disable this Math Input Panel that keeps stealing my Ctrl-Shift-M keyboard shortcut in Word 365??????????

    Maybe it is Mathtype - Equation editor addon in Word. Check which command is set for Ctrl+Shift+M in Word.

    Sounds more likely- I can't see a relationship between the hot key mentioned and Windows' own math input panel.
