  1. Second language keyboard uninstall

    I wrongly installed Spanish language package on my laptop. I thought I was just adding a second keyboard. So now when I click Eng in my right-hand bottom of the taskbar I get a menu that shows Eng, Esp, and Language preferences. I would really like to uninstall the Spanish language that I added so that I end up with the original Eng (USA) only. but when I go to language preferences and I click on esp, the remove button is grayed out. Can anyone please tell me how to uninstall the Spanish language pack that I installed?
    I wanted to add a new keyboard like in the old days one used the Control Panel NOT a language pack.
    Thanks in advance for all assistance.

    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.

  4. Second language keyboard uninstall

    Uninstall primary input language

    I'm using english-US as display language, but german (DEU) as keyboard input language.

    I would like to uninstall the english (ENG) keyboard since the input language switches to english when I hide the unneeded language bar.
    It was very simple under win7, but here I did not find the way (remove is disabled). Can you suggest a solution?

    Thanks, Marco
