Lately, Microsoft addressed an issue with the recent Windows 10 update that caused the Language Bar and Input Indicator to disappear from the notification area.
The Language Bar disappearing issue currently affects Windows 10 20H2, 21H1, and 21H2 systems that have multiple languages installed.
Several users reported having faced the Input Indicator and Language Bar malfunction once they installed the KB5014666 update that was rolled out on June 28, 2022.
For our readers who don’t know, the Input Indicator and Language Bar are utilized to shift between input or keyboard languages on Windows devices and are most likely used with the languages that make use of Input Method Editors (IME).
Later, Microsoft fixed the issues through the Known Issue Rollback (KIR) Windows capability that rolls back buggy non-security patches offered through Windows updates.
Microsft has advised impacted users to restart the system so that the system automatically installs the pushed update.
Meanwhile, IT admins are required to install and configure the KIR Group Policy with the Windows version installed on their system.
To find the Group Policy in Computer Configuration, go to Administrative Templates then KB5014666 220706_033027 Known Issue Rollback.
Furthermore, impacted users can download the Known Issue Rollback Group Policy from the following link.
