    English United States laguage keeps appearing on the task bar even though it is not on the Control Panel settings, how do I remove it? It appeared overnight some time ago and still I can't find an option to get rid of it.

    As a result I need just two keyboard layouts available - Russian and English UK, no need for the US one.

    :)

    Windows 10 1803 Update added extra Language en-US to taskbar

    Windows 10 1803 Update added extra Language en-US to taskbar which you cannot remove.

    Use Cmd Prompt /PowerShell in Admin Mode

    View your language list with :- Get-WinUserLanguageList

    Add a New Language:- New-WinUserLanguageList en-GB

    Set New Language:- Set-WinUserLanguageList en-GB

    The extra keyboard layout keep adding to my language bar (with Pics)

    Hi Panupong,

    The updated Windows 10 may have detected your language, the reason why it automatically gave you the other Thai US keyboard. To correct this issue, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Click on the Start Menu, type in region and language settings and select it.
    • Under Languages, select Thai Kedmanee keyboard and click Remove.
    • Lastly, add it back by clicking Add a language.

    After these steps, your keyboard layout will permanently stay with Thai Kedmanee keyboard.

    Let us know if the steps above resolved your issue.

    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
