The missing Language Bar

Q: I write in Spanish in my computer, so I installed the Language Bar from Vista’s Control Panel. The Language Bar let me switch easily from English to Spanish keyboard layouts. Two days ago, the icons Language Bar’s “ES” and “EN” buttons vanished from my Taskbar.

How do I put them back?

A: Since you’ve already installed Vista’s Language Bar, it should be easy to put the bar’s buttons back onto Vista’s Taskbar.

Right-click a blank portion of the Taskbar; when the pop-up menu appears, choose Toolbars, and select Language Bar from the options.
