How to fix language bar problem in Windows Server 2008/2012 R2


Not so long ago, one of our readers asked us how to fix a problem with his language bar when using RDP session. It doesn’t switch the keyboard layout in the RDP session. Actually, the language icon in the taskbar changes, but next to it appears additional icon, where user has to manually change the input language. It’s a really annoying thins, so we need to fix it.

The solution to this problem is very simple. We just need to change the registry key by using Registry Editor.

  1. Click on the Start button and then type in regedit. Open up Registry Editor and navigate to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout.
  2. Here you have to create a new DWORD value. Give it IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout name and double-click on it. As default the value of this key is 0, but we need to change it from 0 to 1.
  3. Once it is done, close Registry Editor and reboot your system.

That’s how you can solve this problem. That’s all.
