    Windows10 20H2 Language preferences bug?

    Please see attached pic.
    After installing the last update (20H2) I got an additional language (ENG UK) which I can't get rid of:
    As you can see, the ENG UK option is listed on my taskbar but can't be found under the installed keyboards.
    Any remedy?

  2. languages preferred


    Assuming you want to use English (United States) as your preferred language, try these steps

    1. Right click Start Button or press Windows + X keys and select Windows PowerShell (Admin).

    2. In the administrative Windows PowerShell window, type these commands one-by-one and press Enter key after each:


    This will display list of installed languages on your machine. Note the LanguageTag for your preferred language.

    $1=New-WinUserLanguageList <LanguageTag>

    Replace <LanguageTag> for your preferred language. For example, if your preferred language is English (United States), then you can use $1=New-WinUserLanguageList en-US.

    Set-WinUserLanguageList $1

    After this, when opted, type Y to confirm setting preferred language. Close Windows PowerShell and you're done.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Windows 10 Language preference

    Hi AS Balticom,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    I appreciate your efforts to work on this issue.

    I can understand the situation must be difficult for you when the Language preference settings doesn't work as it should.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC prior to this issue?
    2. Which build version is installed on the computer? Press Windows key + R, type 'winver' and press enter to know this information.
    3. Is the issue specific to the UK language?

    Meanwhile, suggest you to follow these methods and check if that works for you.

    Method 1: Suggest you to run the LPK setup and remove the language pack.

    1. Press WIndows key + R to get the run window.
    2. Type ‘LPKSETUP’ and press enter.
    3. Click ‘Uninstall display languages.
    4. Choose the language then click ‘Next’.
    Once this is done, restart the computer and check if that helps.

    Method 2: Further, suggest you to open the Registry Editor and remove the specific registry key and restart the PC to see if that makes any difference.

    Keyboard Identifiers and Input Method Editors for Windows

    Registry disclaimer: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that

    Windows 10 Language preference


    I have an annoying problem with Language preference, Windows 10 be himself add English UK language in preference.

    and you cannot remove it because it isn't in the list if you open Language in Setting you you do not see it, but in tray, you can.

    So you to remove UK language you need to manually add in settings and then remove after UK language disappears.

    Need help this bug.
