  • Windows Vista Home Premium


The Windows Vista logo may not appear correctly on the Welcome screen on a French version or on a Korean version of Windows Vista Home Premium. For example, the logo may be partially truncated. The issue occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • The screen resolution is set to 800 x 600.
  • The Language bar is configured to appear on the desktop.

Note The Language bar is a toolbar that appears on the desktop automatically when you add text services, such as input languages, keyboard layouts, handwriting recognition, speech recognition, or input method editors (IMEs).


To work around this problem, use a high screen resolution. Or, hide or close the Language bar.

To change the screen resolution

  1. Click Start[GRAPHIC: Start button ], type desk.cpl in the Start Search box, and then click desk.cpl in the Programs list.
  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the right to select a higher resolution, such as 1024 × 768 or 1280 x 1024, and then click Apply.

Note 800 × 600 is a low resolution. 1600 × 1200 is a high resolution. CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support the higher resolutions, such as 1280 x 1024. Whether you can increase the screen resolution depends on the size and capability of the monitor and the type of video card that you have. Windows Vista supports a screen resolution that is lower than 800 x 600.

To hide or close the Language bar

Right-click the Language bar, and then use one of the following methods:

  • Click Minimize to reduce the Language bar to an icon on the taskbar.
  • Click Close to turn off the Language bar and to remove it from your desktop. This step does not remove any text services.


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
