There are two types of Windows users, one who use their pointing device aka mouse to perform all the task even simple as the opening Windows start menu and there are these power Windows users, who believe in saving their precious time by utilizing keyboard shortcuts.
The only difference between two is knowledge of keyboard shortcuts. Even the one who calls themselves as a power user often doesn’t know all the keyboard shortcuts offered by Microsoft Windows and its default applications and that’s what happened with us when we came across this thread on Reddit.
The Reddit user with handler jeffek82 had posted a list of Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts and also highlighted some of the less known once and to our surprise, those were indeed we never knew existed. That’s what motivated us to cover a dedicated post on Windows 10Keyboard shortcuts. Below is the list of shortcuts organized under different sections according to its purpose.

Since no one has specifically explained how to get the Russian phonetic let me try:
After you follow the instructions from the first post by Pawan Dhondiyal and you have the Russian Language added go back to the Language Control Panel (you'll see it if you just hit the start/windows button and start typing 'language'. Buku bahasa inggris sd kelas 5.
In there you will see the Russian language listed, Click on Options link to the right
Under Input Method click Add an Input Method
In the list select Russian - Mnemonic and that is the key Full hd hindi movie 1080p free download.
That is the phonetic keyboard you've been looking for and it's a very good one like typing 'ya' will give you a 'я' etc. As a tip I also bring up the on-screen keyboard when I use it in case I have difficulty guessing the English equivalent (again hit the start key and start typing 'keyboard' and you will see it) sometimes when you switch it doesn't change the on-screen keyboard right away, click it somewhere or min/restore it and it will refresh.
The name Mnemonic is what threw me off at first and I started with Bulgarian Phonetic but that one is missing some Russian letters and is just not as good as the Mnemonic one.
