    How to remove Change Input Language from the taskbar?


    Hello!

    Friend has Windows 8.1 32-bit, fully updated and when we were playing with installing another language we got this toolbar. I did everything I could in the Advanced settings under Language in the Control Panel and I am unable to remove it. Is it a bug? How do we get rid of this?

    Did you try right clicking on an empty space of the task bar > Toolbars?

    I did and there's nothing enabled there. I went and enabled everything and disabled again, just in case, but it didn't change anything. I still have that language bar and can't get rid of it.

    Maybe try this, does not seem to work properly here, but maybe you have more luck.
    Control Panel > Language > Advanced Settings > Tick the box for "use the desktop language bar when it's available" > Options. In this dialogue box choose Language Bar Tab > Language bar > Hidden. Apply, OK etc.

    Like your friend I find the Language/different keyboard(UK/US) icon appearing at odd intervals.
    I've been through all the options in the Control Panel, Location Settings, Language, Keyboard settings.

    Just can't get rid of it permanently. Only a re-start seems to work for a while anyway.

    Haha, that did it - "use the desktop language bar when it's available". Weird solution but the thing is gone and we're happy. Thank you Helmut! Thank you all who helped.
