With recent versions of Windows, there has been a major change for users who often use a variety of Latino languages. You do not have to manually switch the language using the touch keyboard. Just continue typing in multiple languages and Windows 10 will support you by displaying predictions from multiple languages to help you work more efficiently.
Additional manual conversion between languages creates barriers for multi-lingual users. Developers hope that this feature can remove the barrier and allow you to easily type in multiple languages.
Starting with Windows 10 build 17093, the operating system supports up to 3 Latin languages for Multilingual text prediction. It is using the first three languages installed from Language Settings to make predictions.
If you are using touch keyboard in any of the following languages, now you will see the suggested words for typing: Assamese, Bashkir, Belarus, Greenlandic, Hawaiian, Iceland, Igbo, Irish, Kyrgyz, Luxembourgish, Maltese, Maori, Mongolia, Nepal, Pashto, Sakha, Tajik, Tatar, Tswana, Turkmen, Urdu, Uyghur, Welsh, Xhosa, Yoruba, Zulu.
The Text Prediction feature is useful for poorly-pronounced and / or bad typists. People often misspellings and predictive features are extremely useful to correct these errors, just as you can on smartphones. In addition, it can save you time by predicting words, after you have typed out a few letters. Here is how to configure this useful feature.

How to find a Registry key with one click on Windows 10:
If you are running Windows 10 build 14942 or later, you do not need scripts from third-party applications. Since version 14942, the Registry Editor application in Windows 10 has an address bar, showing the path for the current Registry key and allowing you to copy and paste it.
You can use the abbreviation for the name of the root key is HKEY_ *. They will look like this:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER = HKCU HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT = HKCR HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = HKLM HKEY_USERS = HKU
So, when you need direct access to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop, you can enter the following information in the address bar:
When you press Enter, the path is automatically extended to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop

3. On the right, modify or create a new 32-bit DWORD value, called MultilingualEnabled.
Note: Even if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.
Set its value data to 1 to enable this feature. Data value 0 will disable it.
4. To make changes made by Registry tweak in effect, you need to log out and log back in to your user account. Alternatively, you can restart the Explorer shell.
