    This drives me crazy. I have three different computers, all on the same 1903 and on one of them this happens while it does not on the other two.
    I suspect it has to do with the upgrade to 1903. Those that came with 1903 do not exhibit this, while my laptop that has been updated to 1903 does.

    Back again almost a year later to fix the same issue. Came back after the last Win10 update to build 2004.

    WEEEEE.... still hate the new FAT user interface.

    Did a fresh install of Win10 1903. Canadian language gets installed as secondary, normally I just delete it and keep US only, which removes the language change notification in the task bar.

    PROBLEM: Language notification keeps showing up again after reboot, showing both US and CAN languages. CAN language is no where to be found. Check in the old Control Panel keyboard and language settings, check in the new FAT UI settings page, can't find it, all looks good. Language bar is disabled as well.

    Have to install and uninstall CAN to get the task bar icon to go away. Pretty much have to do this every reboot. Assume there's a glitch somewhere from Microsoft moving from the old Control Panel to the new (terrible) settings pages.

    Anyway, I did end up fixing the issue by manually editing the registry. Here are some tips.

    1) Use this support page to determine the language codes you are having issues with. To search the registry, add leading zeros. For example, the codes I was dealing with was US: 00000409 and CANADA: 00001009

    2) The registry keys I found with issues were as follows. For the "Keyboard Layout" keys, I had to make sure only the US language remained in the "Preload" section, and remove everything from the "Substitutes" area. For the "AssemblyItem" keys, I removed the entire sub keys that were of the offending language.

    Code:
    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Keyboard Layout
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Keyboard Layout
    
    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem
    Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\CTF\SortOrder\AssemblyItem

    Seems to have resolved my ghost language showing up. Hope this helps someone.

    I have Win 10 Pro 1903.

    I had "ENG" in the sys tray, and wanted to remove it.

    I used Option Two, but with one additional step. That's because Option Two turns off the newer "ENG", but (for me) simultaneously turns on the older "EN", in a different taskbar location.

    My following steps are the same as in the tut:

    Settings > Devices > Typing > Advanced Keyboard Settings

    Now, in my case, "Use the desktop langugage bar when it is available" was unchecked. I checked it. The "ENG" disappeared from its location.

    However, the much older "EN"appeared in a different location. That feature is not mentioned in the tutorial. But the first screenshot in the tutorial above shows both examples. In other words, I think ENG and EN do different things - but I have never found either of them useful enough to use valuable screen real estate.

    So I right-clicked on EN, and selected "Hidden". That was the extra step.

    Thanks.

    Hello mate,

    Checking "Use the desktop langugage bar when it is available" will use the language bar floating on the desktop like in the example screenshots at the top of the tutorial. Unchecking the box will use the newer language bar in the taskbar notification area.

    Selecting "Hidden" like in option 3 will indeed hide the language bar completely.

    .
    Yes, it looks as if you covered all my points in the tuts.

    I should use my specs, but I can't remember where I put them in the fridge.

    Option One: Turn On or Off Input Indicator in Settings

    Is it possible to do so via a REG or batch file?
    Option Four refers to Language Bar, not Input Indicator.

    Is it possible to enable the language bar via a registry tweak? I want to enable it on UAC prompts.

    Hello,

    Option 4 shows the registry changes for the language bar, but it requires at least sign out/in to apply. I'm not sure about having it only show for UAC prompts though.
