Hide Language Bar on Windows 7 desktop


A language bar appears on the desktop screen while working with multiple language input. Language bar is displayed when new keyboard layout or input languages is added on your Windows 7 computer. It is very useful for quick toggle between languages and keyboard layout. However, if you prefer to work in one languages on Windows 7 (which majority of users do), you can hide and remove this language bar easily.
