How to remove Input language switcher in Windows 11

A frequently asked question is whether the language input method can be removed from the taskbar in Windows 11. The language input changer helps people quickly switch keyboard layouts in Windows.

If you set a specific language, sometimes a double line is displayed, causing the taskbar to become thicker and the icons no longer align properly.

You can remove the input language changer from the taskbar to solve this problem.
