    Windows 10. Use languages different from UI language

    Hi all,
    I have a small problem with languages in windows 10 (originally the same problem was in win8, but I didn't solve it there as well).
    I bought the laptop with german windows. But whole my life I worked with english UI interface. I know what and where I should search any setup features and how they call in english version. And of course with german laptop I got a german keyboard, that a little bit different from the english one (and that is the cause of my problem, because only letters Y and Z are changed).
    After the win10 installation I downloaded and installed language pack as recommended and make one as primary language. Beside it i have german language (because it match with keyboard layout) and russian language (as native). BUT, I don't need to have an english language in language bar at all, because I have the same german with correct keyboard layout. I would like to switch between only two layouts: DE and RU.
    Question: how to get rid the english keyboard from language bar, leaving the english UI at the same time?

    Thanks for the help and regards, Andrey

    I think I have the same problem. However I did fix this in Windows 8.1 (Forgot how to... and cannot find the solution again.)
    I use the ENG layout but it keeps giving me the NLD (Dutch) keyboard layout option at the taskbar (img 1).

    However at the language input I cannot find this anywhere. (img 2 and 3).

    To OP: If this is not the same problem, please inform me and I'll delete the comment.

    Hi ySomic,
    it't not exactly that mean. You still have anyway 2 languages english and dutch in language bar.
    But me just come the idea. It's not exactly solution that I want, but already better.

    In english language I added german layout and removed original US layout. And afterward deleted german language at all. Now I have exactly 2 languages in bar, but under english have german keyboard (I would like to have GER name of course).
