Removing the Language Bar in XP
Posted on 31. Oct, 2007 by The Gimcracker in Technology
Finally, no more right-click Task Bar, select Toolbars, and uncheck The Language Bar every time I login to my Windows XP machine. I found a post about how to do this, and I’ll conveniently list the steps for you below:
- 1. Click the Start Button.
- 2. Select Control Panel option.
- 3. Double-Click the Regional and Language Options icon.
- 4. Click on the Languages tab.
- 5. Click the Details button.
- 6. Click the Language Bar button.
- 7. Remove the checkmark from the Show Language Bar option.
- 8. Click OK.
Thank you. Seriously. I’ve always wondered about this.
Aren’t we bettering the world one blog post at a time today?
I hate the language bar with a passion. Any time I get on any computer and see it I automatically “permanently” get rid of it.
One little note: if you follow the steps above to disable the language bar, but then you re-enable it by right clicking on the taskbar, you have to go through the steps again to remove it. I know that’s pretty obvious but I just thought I’d add a bit of knowledge I came up with on my own since my post was based on someone else’s findings.
Somehow I accidentally permanently permanently removed it. I can’t even figure out how to bring it back… I just wanted to bring it back to see what it even did (because I don’t even know what it does) and i can’t… weird…
Tell me how you have accomplished this black magic.
I don’t even remember. All I know is I can’t get it back.
