    Apps and games sometimes launch in the wrong language


    I'm running an english Windows 10 Pro (20H2). Everything but the currency etc format is set to US-English. Still, some games (i.e. Blaston, Loop Hero) and some apps (i.e. some, but not all installers) launch in german (I am in germany). This is absolutely maddening, especially when the app or game does not have a language selection. Is there any additional section where language is determined? - - - Updated - - - Solution found, but it's headache inducing: Some apps and games ignore ALL the language settings and preferences, and for some reason look exclusively at the regional FORMAT settings. Setting this to "English (Germany)" and then manually editing the wrong parts (date is seperated with slashes instead of dots, for some reason) seems to finally solve this.

  3. Launching games

    Hi Wesley,

    Windows 10 is gamer-friendly by design. If an issue like being unable to launch a game happens, it can be caused by outdated display driver or other factors that cause conflict when launching the app. For us to better assist you, we'd like to ask for additional
    information. Please answer the following:

    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Are you getting an error message when launching the game?
    • Have you made any changes to the settings or installed updates prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • What specific games are you having issues with?

    We will wait for your response.

    To remove the Croatian language in Windows 10, we suggest that you follow these steps:

      Region & Language
      .
    • Under Add a language, select English, and click
      Set as default
      .
    • Select the Croatian language and click Remove.
    • Close the Settings app, restart the computer, and check if the issue persists.

    Let us know if the steps provided worked for you.
