Chinese in keyboard language list
« on: April 19, 2021, 03:10:45 PM »
Hello!

I have a problem and need your magic advice.  :)

Suddenly, without any reason, three Chinese dialects appeared in keyboard language list. No sign of them in languages in Settings.

I am searching about it, but didn't find any solution yet...

See if this helps.  From Manage the input and display language settings in Windows 10:

Remove extra language packs or keyboard languages
  •   Select the Start button, then select Settings > Time & Language > Language.
  •   Under Preferred languages, select the language you want to remove, and then click Remove.
  •   To remove an individual keyboard, select the language in question (see step 2), select Options, scroll down to the Keyboards section, select the keyboard you want to remove, and click Remove.

May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart.

The problem is there is no Chinese language here. Only in the taskbar.

I tried to add the dialects and then remove them (as one user suggested somewhere), but I can't even find them in the list with languages.

A video in Youtube I never imagined it could help, helped.

This is what I finally did:

I opened Powershell.

Then, used the command get-WinUserLanguageList to see the installed languages.

Then, new-WinUserLanguageList en-GB

and set-WinUserLanguageList en-GB

Finally, I went to Settings and add Greek again.

No Chinese anymore!

BUT: How my keyboard language list changed so suddenly? How this is possible?

Did you make a remote desktop connection to a computer that had these languages in their layout settings?

No. Never did something like that.
