MacOS has a strange feature – by default, the system does not have a shortcut assigned to change the keyboard layout, which makes many newbies literally tear their hair out! Fortunately, changing the keyboard layout on a Mac is easy.
The layout is changed with a keyboard shortcut Cmd Spacebut often this shortcut is assigned to invoke the Spotlight search bar. To fix the situation, disable two shortcuts for Spotlight:
Now go to the Keyboards and input menu, and change the shortcut to change the input language from Option Space on the Cmd Space…
Note the difference between selecting the previous input source and the next. If you click Cmd Space, then the Mac layout will change to the previous one, again Cmd Space and she will again become what she was before. Thus, you will only switch between two languages.
Those with more than two languages will have to use a combination Option Cmd Space… Therefore, I advise you to swap these key combinations in places if you often use three or more languages.
