Lately I’ve gotten a couple of questions about missing Language Bar after installing Japanese IME onto Windows XP.
There are some settings you should check out on this trouble,
1. Rigional and Language Option
Click on Regional and Language Option > Language > Details > Language Bar
Make sure both “Show the Language bar・・・” and “Show additona Lanugage bar・・・” are CHECKED.
If they are already checked, try uncheck and check then click on OK button.
Start > Run, and type regedit. Locate the following registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER and make sure
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method Show Status Value is 1
