  1. I am not able to remove, AFR Afrikaans Language which appeared in Windows 10 after factory...


    Hello, I ahve a problem with my win10 copy.
    I had to do a factory reset and after that new language appeard: AFR Afrikaans
    This language is not listed in language settings, but can be selected by win+space.


    After few tries i found out that the language was maybe added by Microsoft Office and I tried to remove it from it.

    Yes, Language dissapeared from office but it is still available in selection.

    Do anyone know how to get rid of it ?

    :)

  3. Cannot get rid of language in Windows 10 Pro

    Thank you for your observations. Using LPKSetup won't work, nor will changing registry settings, as you have found. When you mentioned that there is a delay after login before the unwanted AFR choice appears, it sounds to me that this is a Microsoft Office
    Language preference that is loading after you log in. I was able to recreate this issue and solve it through Office 2016 Options. From Word or Outlook, for example, go to
    File | Options | Language and find any unwanted Editing Language, Afrikaans in your case.

    Highlight Afrikaans and click the Remove button. Exit applications and reboot. You should no longer see Windows Language bar options for AFR and any other languages you remove from the Office
    configuration. You will continue to see languages for which you have installed Language Packs through your Windows Region & Language settings.
