I got the same issue.  I updated my system from Windows 8 to Windows 10. Afterwards, when I opened the keyboard, there is no longer the English/Chinese menu at the bottom right of the soft keyboard for me to switch language input.   No matter how I tried to set the Pinyin as my default language input, there is no way for me to type in Chinese.  Ctrl+Shift; Shift; Shift+Space; none of these work.

Please help.

hei, I got this matter solved.

1. go to the option menu to find the place for you to choose keyboard and type in method.

2. delete the Pinyin Type in method.

3. rechoose it again.

then, at the bottom right of the softkeyboard, you will see the familiar menu for switch English and Chinese.

I am facing the same problem of not getting to type in chinese too.
I get to switch my input methods to chinese simplify by pressing windows key + space but it ends up with english input. Before that I updated to Windows 10,  I can change the english input to chinese input by clicking the button but it doesn't work now.

1. Install Chinese Language

2. select keyboard option

3. beside Pinyin input option, add another input option like Wubi, then you should be able to input Chinese

4. remove Wubi input method, you can still use Pinyin input
