Question by Paul Lam /

My language bar is missing on Windows 7. I can’t locate it on the main toolbar and can’t even start it up in the “Text Services and Input Languages” dialog box. Where is it located and how can I get it back?

    Go to Registry editor by typing ‘ regedit’ in Run dialog box.
    ‘COMMAND PROMPT’
    c:\regedit
    the register editor’s popup is appeard. That’s step one
    —————————-
    Step 2:
    Click
    ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE’

    then click
    ‘SOFTWARE’

    then go down
    ‘Microsoft’

    and then
    ‘Windows’

    and finally
    ‘Run’

    Step 3:
    Right Click on blank space in right side.
    Select ‘New String Value’.

    Step 4:
    After that, change the ‘Value name:’ by right click then rename to ‘CTFMON’
    (only big cap.)
    and ‘Value data:’ to ‘CTFMON.EXE’

    Step 5:
    Press ‘OK’
    Restart your computer.
    You will see the language bar in Windows 7 come back.

    easy to do, go to control panel then Region and language, then in tab of ” keyboard and language ” add your language keyboard, then language bar will appear.

    Right-click on taskbar, choose toolbars> there will be language bar option.
    if there in no Language bar, you didn’t have multiple input language installed. go to control panel and look for Region and Language to add additional language.

      Go to Control Panel – select Region and language Then under keyboard and languages tab Click Change Keyboards > a window pops > under Language Bar tab check if it is hidden.

      Language bar only works when you have more than one Keyboard language installed.
      to install a language
      control panel
      > region and language
      > Keyboards and languages
      > Change keyboards
      > general tab > add >
      Choose your language and click ok > apply and ok .
      now you will see it in toolbar.
