Get Rid of the Language Input Indicator (and Tidy Up the Notification Area)

Do you know what language you speak? Yep and so do I. I would venture to say just about everyone does.  So why do you see ENG, ENG US, or whatever your language is sometimes displayed by the clock?

I’ve worked on several computers lately that show ENG or ENG US in the Windows 10 Notification area.  Here’s what I mean.

    Thanks for the good information but I do not have many icons showing in that area. I do have the language one because although my computer is in English, my keyboard is Spanish, so this is a handy icon for me.
