Bug: "Text Services and Input Languages" window is glitchy. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not really a question, but I can't find anywhere to report a bug for Windows.

    I'm running Windows 7 64bit, SP1. I've got 3 keyboard layouts (2 varieties of Dvorak, and Qwerty, for visitors). They are assigned the keyboard shortcuts ctrl-1, ctrl-2, ctrl-3. These shorcuts work fine, but the settings window (titled "Text Services and Input Languages", and accessible by right-clicking the language bar and selecting "Settings...") indicates that the first two don't have shortcuts assigned. Theres nothing for it, this is a bug. Yes I tried rebooting, it didn't help.

    I'm fine functioning with how things are now, but it is unnerving, and makes it impossible to change the shortcuts.

    This is what the window looks like: http://i.imgur.com/8i7CA.png

  • Using Ctrl-number may not necessarily be a good choice. This is a common combination used (and hard-coded) in some applications, so the likelihood of conflict in a particular situation is high. Apart from that, there may also be hardware differences between the number keys on the top row and those on the numerical keypad. I use Left Shift-Alt-number for the first reason, and number on the top row for the second. Users will have to be aware of this if there is a numpad on the keyboard.
    Try assigning a new shortcut, applying and OK'ing your way out, then rebooting to make it stick.
