    Remove input method icon with language initials in notification area


    Hello,
    is it possible to get rid of the input method icon which is located in the notifiaction area which shows the language abbreviation? Something like this: http://www.7tutorials.com/files/img/..._language6.png
    Why there are two languages, hence the icon, if in control panel there is only one? I don't need changing language nor switching input method so I would like to remove that icon. Thanks.

    Found your post yesterday and didn't know the answer. Today I decided I wanted to turn it off too. I turned it off in the notification settings, but after a reboot I saw it had returned. So after that I followed these steps: “Input Indicator” Icon Comes Back in Taskbar Notification Area After Restarting Windows. Hopefully this helps!

    Hi, thanks for the reply.
    There's only one problem with that method: the ability to switch input methods IS still there, it's just hidden (Windows+Spacebar). Is it possible to completely delete or remove, not hide, this feature?

    Ah, didn't know you wanted to change the input. What you can do is remove the language you don't actually use. That way you won't be able to switch between inputs. That's the only way to remove the feature as far as I'm aware of.

    Yeah, the strange thing is that only my primary Language is listed, while the other one is not even there...
