    I am using Windows 10. After installing Colemak, Alt + letter key and Ctrl + letter key combinations follow the new layout as expected. So far so good. However my other layout is Russian typewriter, and in that layout the Alt and Ctrl mapping remains QWERTY. How do I switch that to Colemak?

    Not entirely sure what you mean, but shortcuts usually follow the VK (Virtual key) codes. So what you'd need to do is have your Russian layout send VK according to the Colemak layout. If this is a MSKLC layout, it can be done by editing a .klc file by hand, replacing the second columns of entries.

    You may be interested in the Rulemak (Russian Colemak) layout: https://forum.colemak.com/topic/519-rul … ak-layout/
    It will make switching between English (Colemak) and Russian (Rulemak) a lot more comfortable, because the layouts are related.
