    Change the width of the "Language Indicator" in the taskbar

    After applying new theme on Windows 10, the font of the taskbar became bigger, so the word ENG was cropped on both sides how shown in image:

    How can I increase the width of the Input Indicator? Or, as alternative, reduce font size in the taskbar.

    You might be able to play around with the font size if you have the aerolite theme. There are a couple of threads which are worth looking at:

    I came to conclusion that changing font of the taskbar requires editing of the msstyles file it's too complicated for my purpose. So, I managed to decrease font only in the Language Indicator. I did the following steps:
    Control Panel → Language → Advanced settings → check box "use the desktop language bar when it's available" → Options.
    In the Language Bar tab select "Floating on Desktop".
    After that I moved the Language Bar to the bottom of the screen in right corner and slided it to the left it has docked itself in the taskbar:

    Finally, I clicked Options (downhead arrow or right click) and unchecked "Help Button" and "Additional icons in taskbar". This is what I've got:
