    Hello There,For some unknown reason, I do have English twice as a keyboard layout language:1. English United States US2. English United Kingdom USBoth languages provide US outputs ! I've tried installing the English UK language pack & then deleted it, but that didn't work out, installing the English UK language pack gave me a 3rd language input which is English United Kingdom UK.How do I get rid of the English United Kingdom US option? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Can't remove extra language in language bar

    If you add a secondary language to Windows 10 version 1803 that shares the same base language as the Windows display language, neither language can be removed.

    For example: If English (United Kingdom) is the current Windows display language, and you then add English (India) to the Preferred languages list, afterwards neither English (United Kingdom) nor English (India) can be removed from the Preferred languages list.

    Note: The most notable effect of having multiple related languages in the Preferred languages list is additional entries in the text input selector. You can remove unwanted language list entries using these steps:

    1. From the Start menu, search for powershell.

    2. Right-click Windows Powershell in the search results and choose Run as administrator.

    3. Type or copy/paste the following command at the command prompt, and then press Enter.

    Get-WinUserLanguageList

    After typing this command, make note of the “LanguageTag” listed for the language you wish to remove, as you will need it in the next step.

    4. Type or copy/paste each of the following commands at the command prompt, and then press Enter. In the following commands, instead of typing <languagecode>, replace it with the language tag you wish to remove, such as en-in for English (India).

    $LangList = Get-WinUserLanguageList

    $MarkedLang = $LangList | where LanguageTag -eq "<languagecode>"

    $LangList.Remove($MarkedLang)

    Set-WinUserLanguageList $LangList -Force
