I work with 2, sometimes 3 different languages on my XP boxes.

Windows XP chooses input language on a per-application basis. That is, when I switch to a different application, Windows sometimes changes the input language because it remembers that I used that language last time I used that app.

I don't like that. I want Windows to maintain one global input language, and change it only when I hit Alt-Shift.

Is it possible to hack Windows to behave like that? Maybe with AutoHotKey?


Thanks,
Ram Rachum.

See this: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=29643.0 Works only for 2 languages though.

Cool hack. But I don't think that's for me, for several reasons, one of them being that I use the CAPS-LOCK key for its actual purpose quite often.

Any other ideas?
