input layout changing automatically[Solved]

Hi, I've just noticed that W7 changes input layout when I ex. open Winamp, It automatically changing from Norwegian to English all the time, It mostly happens when I minimize and maximize programs.
Can anyone help me to disable this, I google'd this but nothing came up.
This is really annoying -.-

Watch this vid if you didnt understand.

Is is possible that the problem is in Winamp, instead of W7. Have you tried reinstalling it?

Language bar remembers the language set to individual applications as long as the process is running. In your case it looks like you have Nynorsk (New Norwegian) as your default language but you also have English keyboard layout installed.

At some point you have changed the input language in Messenger to English, so as long as Messenger process is running the input language is switched to the last used i.e. English every time Messenger has focus, being the active window.

If you have Nynorsk as your default input language, this small issue should fix itself when closing Messenger (completely exit it) and re-launching it.

Shortly: the chosen input language in an application resets to default only when application is closed. Otherwise the application uses the last used input language. Read more here.

To add to what Grimmjow said, if you want to use just one keyboard layout you can remove the unnecessary ones and only use for example your native Norwegian layout.
