Hi, i have a problem with the language change in my computer.
I have Windows XP Professional Greek installed on my newly bought hard disk.
The keyboard i am using is a Microsoft Office Keyboard with IntelliType 2.0
The Office i am using is MS Office XP with Frontpage Greek Version.
The languages that i have installed on my PC are English and Greek.
My problem is that when i am using the applications MS Word, MS Excel and the Notepad or Wordpad, i cannot change the language from English into Greek and vice versa. The keyboard shortcut "left Alt+Shift" does not function when i am using those particular applications. (It works fine with every other application though.)
The list of shortcut keys for Windows does not include the keys Alt+Shift (although it did exist in earlier versions of the OS).
Plus, the list of shortcut keys for Office applications does not include the keys Alt+Shift either.
every other shortcut functions perfectly.
the problem is that when i am typing, i need to go from one language to the other without having to use the mouse pointer all the time, that is without having to change the language from the toolbar of windows.
