Just in case Input Language in Windows 8 is driving you nuts…

In case you’re working with more than one input language in Windows 8 (EN, HE…), and you’re wondering “Why the hell the input language is HE in vs2012 or EN in Word, or the opposite, and not switching back automatically…”?

The answer for this question is: starting with Windows 8, the default for input language for any window is the last selected by the user (Users request from Microsoft…).

This situation is great for users who are working with only one language. This feature is annoying for users like me, switching languages back and forward, it drives me crazy!

So what can we do about that?

It’s simple, go to Start screen (Win Ley), search for “input language” in settings section


Select “Switch input methods”


On the left, select “Advanced Settings”


Then in the “Switching input methods” section set the “Let me set a different input method for each window”.


From now on, changing the input language will be kept for each Window and won’t be changing globally.
