    Remove input method without removing language?


    I have an Italian installation of Windows 10 Pro 1511, and I also have the Japanese IME and, thus, Japanese language installed in the control panel, BUT I needed to install English (UK) too, because all the Store apps that didn't support Italian used Japanese instead of English.
    The problem is that, now, the UK Keyboard input method appears in the language bar too, and I can't remove it via the control panel. Is there any way to remove it?

    (Remove won't be enabled on mine as English UK input is default)

    Then do an in-place upgrade repair install - see tutorial section. There's a real guide to that there.

    That will also reset languages to default.

    Good luck!

    I don't want to because probabily it won't even work, because the primary language is Italian and I also have Japanese IME.
    Is there something like a registry hack?

    You want to check in with Sergey Tkachenko over at WinAero.com about this. He runs multi-lingual setups all the time, and has blogged about language packs, input methods, and so forth repeatedly. You can reach him through the site at his "About" page (his email address is all the way down at the bottom, in image form, to confuse e-mail address harvesting robots).
