Disabling Keyboard-Layout Switches

The Windows 2000 Control Panel Keyboard applet provides the option to enable or disable the keyboard's layout configuration key sequence. (For example, I can enable Alt+Shift to switch the keyboard's country configuration.) How can I disable the option by default?

Open a registry editor and go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout subkey. Add the Toggle value, of type REG_SZ. To enable use of the Alt+Shift key sequence to switch between locales, assign a value of 1. To enable use of the Ctrl+Shift key sequence to switch between locales, assign a value of 2. To disable the key-sequence option by default, set the value to 3.
