To hide the Language bar
Right-click the Language bar.
Do one of the following:
Click Minimize to reduce the Language bar to an icon on the taskbar.
This option removes the Language bar from your desktop but keeps it active and available.
Click Close the Language bar to turn off the Language bar and remove it from your desktop.
To perform Language bar functions without having the Language bar on your desktop, right-click the Language bar and then click Additional icons in taskbar. You can then minimize the Language bar and click the text service icons on the taskbar to perform actions.
Closing the Language bar does not remove any text services. If you are not using a service, such as handwriting or speech recognition, you should remove it. Text services require computer memory and might affect performance.
You can also minimize the Language bar by clicking Minimize on the Language bar.
You cannot close the Language bar if you have installed an Input Method Editor (IME).
