    How to Add a Language in Windows 10


    In Windows 10, you can add different languages to install and use for the keyboard layout.

    See also: Language packs | Windows Support

    This tutorial will show you how to add a language to use for display language, text-to-speech, speech recognition, handwriting, and keyboard layout for your account in Windows 10.

    *note Adding a language requires downloading the language files from Microsoft, so you will need to have an Internet connection to add a language.

    *Warning If you have a single language edition of Window 10, you can't add a new language unless you purchase an upgrade to either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Time & Language icon.

    2. Click/tap on Language on the left side, and click/tap on Add a language under Preferred languages on the right side. (see screenshot below)

    3. Select a language (ex: "English (United Kingdom)") you want to add that has the available language features you want to install, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    4. Check the language features you want to install for this language, uncheck the language features you do not want to install for this language, and click/tap on Install. (see screenshot below)

    *note Standard users will only be able to check or uncheck Set as my display language and Install language pack. No other language features will be available for standard users.

    *Warning Be sure to uncheck Set as my display language if you do not want to set this language to be your current display language now.

    *note Starting with Windows 10 build 18262, there is now separate options for installing the language pack and setting the language as the Windows display language. There is also separate options for installing the Speech recognition and Text-to-speech features, when these features are available for the language.

    5. The selected language features for the added language will now be downloaded and installed for your account. (see screenshots below)

    *note If you didn't install all available features for a language, you can click/tap on the added language, click/tap on Options, and click/tap on Download for the features you want to install for the language.

    Windows 8.1 update changed the language, can't change back

    Maybe, these will help... it seems it is a common enough problem.

    Language packs are no longer available after you upgrade to Windows 8.1

    And, sort of the same here --> Add a language or keyboard

    Quote from above MS web page:

    Spoiler Download and install language packs
    You'll need to download the language pack if you want to make a language your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps).
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click a language that says Language pack available underneath, and then tap or click Options.
    • Tap or click Download. The download process might take a while, depending on your PC and the size of the language pack.
      If you want to make this your display language, see the next section "Change your Windows display language".
    Change your Windows display language
    To change your Windows display language (that's the language you see most often in Windows and apps), first add a language, download and install the language pack, and then follow these steps.
    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
    • Tap or click Time and language, and then tap or click Region and language.
    • Tap or click the language that you want to set as your display language.
    • Tap or click Set as primary to move the language to the top of the list. If the language can become your Windows display language, you'll see Will be display language after next sign-in appear under the language.
    • Sign out and then sign back in to finish.

    Add a Language in Windows 10

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
