  1. Click on En
  2. Select Text Entry Settings
  3. Uncheck Show Current Input Source in Menu Bar in the lower-left section.

enter image description here

  • Open System Settings
  • Click on the ‘Region and Language’ tile
  • Uncheck the box next to ‘Show Current Input Source in Menu Bar’

And that’s it. The switcher is now hidden.



You are talking about the "keyboard layout notification".

It allows you to easily switch between different keyboard layouts.

To disable it, right click on the icon, select text Entry Settings, you get a dialog, enter image description here there at the bottom unselect Show current input source in the menu bar.
