Restore the IME in Windows 7


It wasn’t long time since I removed the IME (Language) bar in Windows 7 task bar just to conserve space. But now I want it back. I tried everything, right clicking on the task bar and I combed the properties but yet the efforts were fruitless and I was empty handed and mad! I removed it from the taskbar, let me get it back from the task bar! Not fair!

Enough rambling… The fix was pretty easy. Head to Control Panel and then to Region & Language, on to the 2nd tab which is Keyboards and Language


Then click “Change keyboards” button. Then to the 2nd tab of that, which what we finally wanted “Language Bar”. And there you go! Choose Docked in the taskbar, or floating on the desktop.
