    Hi justsomeguy1,

    Have you tried removing the unwanted languages from Control Panel?

    Regional and Language Options/Languages.

    If you only need one langusge then get rid of the rest and you won't need to select which to use each time. You might get a message saying that a language will only be deleted at the next re-boot since it is already referenced.

    lol

    The Language bar that Guy is talking about is probably the thing that shows icons for "Microphone" "Handwriting" "Speech Tools" down in the Taskbar.

    Yeah, it is annoying, and I have gone through many attempts myself in shutting it off and then it reappears the next time I re-start my desktop.

    I do know how to shut it off, but it seems persistent in coming back later. I have about 5 computers I use at work and home and I eventually do something that finally keeps it off, but I have no idea what the single combination it is to do it correctly the first time. And I have tried many different combinations. Perhaps it is a "Windows do-it x times and I will remember" type of thing (there actually is at least one thing that actually has that sort of property).

    Keep trying Guy; you'll probably get as lucky as I have been, in time.

    You weren't that far off.
    Actually the Language bar can also have a selection within it to display Language selections for the keyboard.

    For example, mine will show a selectable 2-letter button [EN] for English, [ES] for Spanish, [DE] for German, etc. The displayed two letters let you know which keyboard you are using at the time.

    Making a click on the two letters will bring up a selection for the others. Clicking on any will alter your keyboard to the language (some keys are remapped).

    Hey JustSomeGuy1, I finally figured out how to correctly shut off that "Language Bar" that shows up un the Task Bar.

    All you need to do is do a right-click over any of the Language bar buttons.
    Click on the "Settings" selection.
    That opens a "Text Services and Input Languages" window.
    In the Preferences area, click on the [Language Bar] button.
    Uncheck the "Show the Language bar on the desktop"

    Click [OK] and [OK] and that's it.
