Windows 7: Windows 7 Language Bar - Unable to select options

Windows 7 Language Bar - Unable to select options

Hi there,

Ive been having some trouble with my language bar. I can see the back on my desktop, but as soon as I left click on the icon (to change settings/change languages) the pop-up menu only appears for about 0.5 of a second and then disappears.

I've included a link to youtube below so you can see what I mean.

Welcome to Seven Forums Fifty. I'd suggest the System File Checker, but you appear to have significant customizations that it would undo. I'd start with turning the language bar off, then re-enable it. If no help, I'd try switching to a standard windows theme to see if that is the issue. You can also do a clean start to see if something is conflicting.

Alt + Shift will cycle though the choices until you can figure this out BTW. A Guy
