Kill the Windows XP Language Bar for good!
The single biggest annoyance of Windows XP (for me, at least) is the language bar. Seems like every time I reboot it’s back. Here’s how to fix it:
To close the Language bar (using Classic view in Control Panel):
- Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.
- On the Languages tab, under Text services and input languages, click Details.
- Under Preferences, click Language Bar.
- Deselect the Show the Language bar on the desktop check box.
