    Can't change my Windows 10 display language from Japanese back to English


    Recently tried to add Japan as another keyboard, and forgotten what i did, next all the Windows 10 language became Japanese. I tried to revert back by choosing English, but nothing happens when i click it. Plus, from the language menu under settings doesn't show my other additional languages under the "add new language" option. I have tried to install new language by clicking inside the option but nothing happens when i click install. I also did windows system recovery to the time before i did the change but it still stay Japan as display language. Any help?


    Here are some screenshots of my language setting menus:

    note that under the " + Add new language" option doesn't show my other additional language like everyone else

    Want English language system with Japanese IME keyboard

    In previous versions of Windows (English), the display language was English and I could have the default input language in Japanese (IME). It seems in Windows 10 that if I want Japanese IME to be the default input language I have to have the display language
    also in Japanese.

    I'm sure Microsoft wouldn't have done such a ridiculous change such as that because it would have been stupid, right?

    Please let me know how I can make Japanese (IME) the default input language with the correct keyboard but keep English as the system display language.

    Thanks!

    display language is in Japanese

    Hello

    I mistakenly changed my display language from English to Japanese.

    I was trying to change the keyboard to be able to switch over to Japanese.

    I made a mistake.

    I'm a very beginner with Japanese. I cannot read Japanese.

    How to I change back to English when everything is written in Japanese?

    Thanks for you help.
