I installed QGIS 3.0.0 on a PC with French as default language. After changing the language of QGIS to English, the 'Vector' menu is empty and there is a French 'Vecteur' menu.

Any ideas how to fix this?

I cannot change the system language.

    What happens if you run the OSGeo4W Shell (e.g. Start menu > All programs > QGIS 3.0 > OSGeo4W Shell) and type in qgis --lang en? – Joseph Feb 26 '18 at 15:00

There is already a bug reported for this problem.

In the meantime you can click "Reset to defaults" under Settings > Options > Processing and then restart QGIS. This removes the empty vector/raster menus.

  • Using QGIS 3.2 (Bonn), I do not have a Processing option when I go Settings > Options. – TheLastGIS Oct 21 '19 at 23:44
  • ... I don't have a processing option in the Settings>Options either... both in 3.16 and 3.18. I was operating 3.14 (I think) on the same laptop and had no problem... – 神戸ベアークリス Apr 24 at 3:01
  • I didn't have that option either, but I think that is because this is a different error. The OP's error was not the lack of the menu but that it was duplicated (french and english) and he only needed to remove the unused/empty one. My error was that I only had one empty menu. The processing tools were not loaded at all and that is why I didn't have the option under Settings, once loaded I do have it. Julio's answer below was the correct answer to my problem but not for the OP's. – Marc Compte Jun 4 at 13:48

I'm teaching qgis right now and several student have the same problem. The processing plugin deactivate by their self in several laptops. Just go to plugins/manage and install plugins and reactivate it

    This was the root cause when my Vector menu disappeared. – TheLastGIS Oct 21 '19 at 23:43
  • This seems to be the most relevant answer for QGIS 3 – wfgeo Mar 6 '20 at 9:26
  • This worked for me when I disabled and then re-enabled the processing plugin. – donaddon Apr 14 at 1:27
