Language bar missing from taskbar

My language is MIA. I have at least 5 languages installed, and I have followed all the directions, and I have checked the forums, but it is still missing! I'm finding it very frustrating as I wish to type in Japanese and Farsi, and I need the toolbar for that.

Here is the standard procedure given:

If the Language bar isn't listed in the Toolbars menu, you don't have multiple input languages installed on your computer. You need to add additional languages using Region and Language in Control Panel.

Follow the steps mentioned below to add an input language:

1. Open Region and Language by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Region and Language.
2. Click the Keyboards and Languages tab, and then click Change keyboards.
3. Under Installed services, click Add.
4. Double-click the language you want to add, double-click Keyboard, select the text services options you want to add, and then click OK.

Q: I have added multiple languages (English UK, Chinese Simplified, Japanese), language bar still did not appear on taskbar

If you don't see the Language bar, right-click the taskbar, point to Toolbars, and then click Language bar. For more information about the language bar, refer the article below for more info:

Q:Another person resolved this problem by changing the language bar settings from 'hidden' to 'dock in taskbar'. Mine was never hidden, but I changed and changed it back - nothing happened! In fact, I can't actually remember ever having seen the language bar! Somebody please  help!

The Language bar appears only if profiles are two or more keyboard installed

To install a different keyboard configuration, is in

"Control Panel"> "Regional and Language Options" then in the "Languages" tab, then click "Details"

You can click the "Add" and select a profile keyboard, any one, for example "French (Belgium)" or "French (Canada)" then click "Apply" and the Language bar will appear near your clock.

Otherwise, if you use a keyboard layout, the Language bar disappears, and only serves to change the keyboard layout.
