  1. I have setup various keyboard layouts on my windows 10 (UK, US, SWE), but only layout where this seems to work is the US one.

    Reading from changelog this should work also with SWE layout which would be enough for me (well FI support would be even better, but SWE is good too).

    Charcodes (according to javascript events) for button above tab is US 96, SWE 167 and UK 96 as well… So it doesn’t seem like the problem is charcodes at least, because UK layout didn’t work either.

  2. Mike: currently EWS assigns itself a hotkey at startup based on the active keyboard layout. This lets us keep resource usage down to an absolute minimum as we can remain fully idle until the particular key combination is executed.

    To support dynamic switching of hotkeys during a single session, EWS would have to run on every key combination and then check if it matches based off the current keyboard layout (unless there’s a Win32 API for getting notifications when the keyboard layout is changed).

  3. Thank you for the response!

    I actually tried restarting EWS with different active layout selected and it still didn’t work with any other layout except for US. I have my language set to be English and Keyboard layout in Swedish.

    Maybe it gets confused because of multiple layouts and different language? Is there any startup logfiles to checkout what goes wrong during the startup?

    Also having toolbar icon would be nice for restarting it or to be able to give own shortcut(s) to the switcher.
