How can I change spells (using hotkeys) in a spell+shield configuration?

I like how the PC version of Skyrim lets you use the number keys to switch quickly between spells, but its awkward to use this capability when you are in a spell + shield configuration. As far as I can tell shields can only be equipped in the left hand, and this is unfortunately the same hand used to equip a spell when you press the assigned number key.

I want a setup where I can press the number keys to select different spells for my right hand while keeping the shield equipped on my left hand. How can I do this?

  • How do I get through this gate in Ustengrav?
  • My head keeps falling off. What can I do?
  • How am I supposed to kill the frost troll?
  • What quest triggers the random dragon attacks?
  • Can I control my transformation into a werewolf?
  • How can I get rid of a bounty and keep my stolen items?
  • What's the formula for merchant price?
  • How do I switch sides in the Civil War?
  • Soul Gems losing their soul
  • How do I get better at sneaking?
  • Do corpses disappear after a while?
  • Is it ok to kill guards?

    I’ve figured out one way to do this but its pretty clumsy. The key is that double tapping a spell key will equip the spell in both hands. So I have my hotkeys as follows:

    1 - Shield
    2 - Spell A
    3 - Spell B

    If I want to equip shield + spell A, I hit 2, 2, 1. This will equip spell A to both hands and then put the shield back into the left hand.

    If I want to swap to shield + spell B, I hit 3, 3, 1.

    This works but I would still much prefer a simpler way.
