Damn, should have looked before I leaped, what I did was to put the language bar at the top of the screen.
Right click on En box and you can then close the language bar, a box tells you how to restore it! thats if it works like this in 98SE, if not you will continue to be annoyed until an XP expert tells you how to do it.
Well I have been ambling round the local Hypermarket all afternoon.
This is definitely my last reply to your post bof:) <:-((
On the language tab of Keyboard, have you got any languages showing in the 'Installed languages & layouts' box? I have En enabled on my task bar out of choice and the only way the 'enable indicator' check box is greyed out is if I remove all that are in the 'installed language' box.
click on control panel, regional and language options,languages tab then details.Click on Language Bar, and de-select SHOW LANGUAGE BAR ON DESKTOP and show additional language bar icons on the taskbar....TT
The Terminator - Might be wrong, but I don't think that applies for 98se.
bof:) - I think you have to have at least one other language other than English in the Installed Languages & Layouts box, before you can uncheck the enable indicator box, (I don't have En enabled on the task bar at home and only have English in the Layout box and the enable indicator is greyed out.)
