    Here is tests case:

    1. Configure keyboard to use Russian and English layout.
    2. Configure switch between layouts: Ctrl + Shift
    3. Go to any search page such as http://www.msn.com/ or
    4. try to switch from one keboard layout to another by pressing Ctrl + Shift
    It doesn't work.
    5. Open Firefox, go to the same page, try to switch keyboard layout.
    It works fine.

    It seems that IE7 Beta was not tested in situation when changing
    keyboard layout to another language is required.

    Do you guys really think that everyone in the world are only using English ?

    Hey Alex!
    As far as you are Russian - you can expect that only Russian will solve the
    problem for you:

    Put the text below to Notepad:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout]

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload]

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Substitutes]

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Toggle]
    "Language Hotkey"="1"
    "Layout Hotkey"="2"

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Toggle]
    "Language Hotkey"="1"
    "Layout Hotkey"="2"

    Save the file as: IE7Keyboard.reg
    Add it to the registry. Enjoy!
    Regards, Andrew.

    "As far as you are Russian - you can expect that only Russian will solve the

    Why's that? You think that all others automatically hate russians? Well, that's not true. Though politics are a bit offtopic here and i dont wanna use old antithesis USA agains Russian.. times change and world with it.
    Im from Finland and actually if i have to name one country i hate it would be USA and especially their gun loving patriotic and hypocritical "true believer" republicans. :mad:

    But hey, thanks for reg keys -i was searching those for a while. Needed to change KB layout of new generation windoses..

    Same edit in XP was a bit simpler though.. location is same but in Vista there seem to be all those subfolders and it was unclear where the actual change must be made.
