    Phantom language input methods cannot be deleted


    At one point I added a Greek polytonic keyboard method but had deleted it long ago. However it still shows up at lower right corner and can be switched into. I tried time and language setting and control pannel change language preference menu but Greek does not show up in the menu, so I failed to delete it.

    Common problem.

    Do this from setting menus, not control panel

    1) Add greek language and set as default.

    2) Click on options and add your keyboard and delete greek keyboard (if this is different to the one you are seeing, I guess you could try to add it here, reboot then delete it).

    3) Now select your normal language, make default and remove Greek language.

    Note: for bizarre reasons, the phantom keyboard will probably annoyingly reappear at random.
