Yesterday I received a Facebook question from one of our readers who asked how to get rid of the language indicator from the taskbar, which for English language users is indicated on the taskbar with the letters ENG. If you are interested in removing that it, here is what you should do.
To remove and hide the language indicator icon in Windows 10, do the following:
- Open the Settings app
- Go to System -> Notifications and actions.
- On the right, click "Turn system icons on or off":
- The appropriate page of the Settings app will be opened. To get rid of the language indicator icon from the taskbar in Windows 10, turn off the switch "Input indicator":
You are done. The space on the taskbar is quite limited. Instead of the default oversized language indicator, you might want the more compact classic language bar. See the article:Get the old language indicator and language bar in Windows 10. If you want to get rid of the language bar/old input indicator, you need just to right click it as shown below:
In the context menu, pick the item "Close the language bar". That's it.
