How to remove Korean, Japanese and Chinese keyboards from the keyboard list

(Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows, please make a backup of the registry prior to editing)

Open the Windows Registry, regedit

Navigate to the following key:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Look for these three items:

"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /CHS /log"

"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /JPN /log"

"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /KOR /log"

Delete all of them.

You may also find the same items under:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

If so, delete these as well.

Restart your computer
