    Problem with language bar and input method


    Hi everyone, I have a little problem that is driving me nut, and I have no idea where to search to find solutions about it.
    First here is my "winver" window:

    When I do Windows key + Space key, I got this menu that shows up:

    As you probably know, that's the language bar for changing inputing method. As you can see, windows decided automatically to add a third input method that is "ENG FR French keyboard". It is the same as the FRA French keyboard and I only need one. Having three makes the windows + space shortcut not intuitive and it's annoying.
    Yeah I know it is a petty detail but details matters *chuckle

    I tried disabling the FRA keyboard so windows only keep the two ENG US / ENG FR keyboards, which works perfectly. Until I restart my computer and windows decide to remove my language bar because I only have one language left.
    (This button disappear from the taskbar completly after rebootProblem with language bar and input method :)

    Does someone know if there is a way to remove either FRA Keyboard or ENG FR keyboard without loosing my language bar after reboot ?

    Thanks in advance Problem with language bar and input method :)

    :)

    Can I have a different default input method from the display language


    I am sorry for my late reply. First thank you for your detail explanation. I have managed to follow the instructions but what I really want is to have a English system but with Chinese Input as default input method. Right now I have to use CTRL+SPACE on each startup. It is not difficult but in long run it does create a little bit inconvenience.

    In Windows 7 the input method and system language are separated and I would like to know if I can have similar behavior in Windows 10.

    Thank you.

    Can I have a different default input method from the display language


    My knowledge of setting it up for Chinese language is limited as I have only done it with European languages. However I don't think it will be much different to European Language (assuming you use standard Roman alphabet keys on a QWERTY keyboard?), where you can add different languages and different keyboards (input) for those languages, depending on what keyboard you're physically typing on.

    The settings are in Start > Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language, as follows:

    You will find apps such as the Windows 10 Mail app will spell check what you're typing in the language you have set in the Task Bar. So if the 'Input Indicator' in the Task Bar is set to 'ENG' it will spell check/word suggest in English. If it's set to 'GER' is will spell check/word suggest in German.
