How to Remove that Extra Language
from your Language Bar

information   Information

This will show you how to remove that extra language that appears in your Language Bar, even though you didn't choose it!

It will also remove that annoying little EN button that may appear in the upper left hand corner of your Welcome screen.

This usually happens when using an en-US set up disk when you will be using other languages. It seems to be a little known issue, mainly because most of us either use or include English in our set up.


1) First you need to navigate your way to the Control Panel.

If you are using the Category view click on the link Change keyboard or other input methods under Clock, Language, and Region.

If however you are using one of the Icon views click on the link Region And Language.

2) On the Region and Language window, click on the Administrative tab.
See image below.

3) Then in the Welcome screen and new users accounts box, click on the Copy settings... button (Admin privileges may be needed).
See image below.

4) Next, in the Welcome screen and new users accounts settings window, under the heading Copy your current setting to:, check the boxes against Welcome screen and system accounts and New user accounts (This covers all options!).
See image below.

5) Finally, OK your way out.

Re-booting may be required before you will see any changes.
