Windows 7: How to deactivate Windows Language Bar "Always on Top"

How to deactivate Windows Language Bar "Always on Top"

Hello together,

i'm trying to deactivate the "Always on Top" setting of the Windows Language Bar. (See screenshot)

The Problem is, i have to do that fully unattended during the installation. But i have no idea and found no realy answer for that.

Is there a small registry hack or WMI control to deactivate this small Window?

Maybe i am to stupid to find it with google or i just use the wrong questions...

I hope you can help me out.

Hi, thanks for your reply. No theese options wasn't very helpfull. But i found one on my own... I tried it already before but i don't know why it now still works...

I just wanted to deactivate the "Always on top" state. This small registry hack was helpfull:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar" /f /v ShowStatus /t REG_DWORD /d 4
