    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.

    See System Default UI Language of Windows 10


    Thank you Shawn, very much. I believe the following comments will save at least some readers a large amount of time:

    1. If one is trying to change the System Default UI language (and not the displayed language of an individual user), then the relevant tutorial is not the one you cite above, but is instead: [url='https://www.windowsphoneinfo.com/threads/region-and-language-settings-copy-in-windows-10.6819/[/url] (How to Copy Region and Language Settings to Welcome Screen and New User Accounts in Windows 10)

    2. If you're like me, you don't want to really change the default system UI language at all. Your problem is that you have in your hand an upgrade .iso, but the upgrade won't allow you to preserve apps setting and files because the 'edition' of the iso isn't the 'same' edition as your current installed Windows. And logic tells you this can't be the real reason you can't preserve files apps and settings, because OF COURSE the .iso is of a different edition -- that's why you using it at all, to UPGRADE.
    The shameful truth is that it is the system default UI language which is likely to be different between the .iso and your installed Windows. None of the other language settings seem to matter, although YMMV. Rather than go through the rather delicate procedure in the tutorial just cited, i found that indeed if I just change the value of the "default" key of this tutorial, changing to the correct, desired, LCID (i.e. the one matching the upgrade .iso), then the command dism /online /get-intl reports the system default UI Language to be immediately changed. So you can proceed with the upgrade, and --miracle of miracles -- you can keep files apps and settings.

    When the upgrade completes, it is probably safer to restore the registry value using he control panel Region settings in the tutorial mentioned in the previous paragraph. However you choose to do it, making the default system UI language agree between the current installation and the upgrade media was absolutely critical to keeping my apps settings and files.
