Recently I lost my language bar in Vista. It was working fine with 4-5 languages and so on. When I say "lost" I mean that it disappeared from the taskbar down right, near the clock, volume etc. I'm still having the functionality of changing input language (through Shift+Alt combination).
MY UN-SUCCESSFUL STEPS TO RECOVER LANGUAGE BAR:
I went to "Regional and Language Options>Change keyboards>Language Bar" and the right option was still selected: "Docked in the taskbar".
1) I tried to deselect>apply>restart>re-select>apply the above option but nothing happened.
2) I made right click on the Taskbar > Toolbars and De-selected the "Language Bar" Toolbar. When I tried to select it again IT WAS DISAPPEARED.
3) I got deperate, I went to "Regional and Language Options" panel and I selected that I want "Language Bar Floating on the Desktop": YES, it worked and the language bar appeared, but whenever I try to minimize the bar to the Taskbar it is DISAPPEARING again ?!?
I have OS "Windows Vista Home - Basic SP1" with latest updates, including Internet Explorer 8.
I would like: 1) To recover Language bar as it is or at least 2) To reset taskbar Toolbars and start over without re-installing.
