Does Win + Space still does not change the keyboard layout?
It would seem that the most important thing - the work of the keyboard. But I can not reassign the combination Win + Space because the functions are called inside the window.... It's a brain dump.


It doesn't even register pressing the Win button.

Add these options to the "Personalization" settings:

  • Changing the speed of the Magic Lamp effect
  • The effect of rippling windows
  • Shading effect for out of focus windows

It looks good to me.
Somebody could use it.
