  1. Change Windows 10 Display Language


    I seem to remember changing the display language in Windows 8 (or 8.1, I forget) but I no longer seem to be able to in after upgrading today to Windows 10. (Want to change display language to English)

    Versions: Windows 8 Home, Windows 10 Home

    If I go into settings and install English (I assume input language), it does not give me the option to further download the Display Language, as I have seen in most tutorials, including the official MS website. Also tried to download the cab from winaero and install using lpksetup but it tells me something along the lines of "unable to install the language pack on this computer"

    Is it because its Home, rather than Ultimate etc.? because I was under the impression that the version did not matter after Windows 7.

    Is it possible to change the display language?

    :)

  3. How can I change the display language in Windows 10

    Hello, I've just updated windows 8.1 Home single language to windows 10 Home single language. I live in Thailand but I my old windows display language was English so I prefer using English menu in Windows. But when I've updated it. The display language
    in the new windows is Thai. I had never chosen any language in the windows 10 installation. I'm very confuse about Thai menu in the new Windows. I try to change display language in setting but it doesn't seem to work so can I change the display language in
    Windows 10 to English?

    PS. I've updated my Windows via Media Creation Tool (from Download Windows 10) and the installation was Thai language. I think that I could change the display language later but it can't.

  5. Thanks Brink. But the link you provided was one of the first I read through, except for me, I don't see the "Download Language Pack" after going into Options; only Writing (Input?) and Voice (Exact wording might be different in English)

    I don't have a Home edition install in a VM yet to test with, but for now please go ahead and post screenshots showing what you see instead for each step to see it that can help spot a reason until I have one setup or someone else help before then. *Smile

  7. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong and it's not a very hard instruction to follow. However, when I add a new language, it doesn't say "language pack available" as it should (according to the link) or give me the option to download the language pack. The only thing I can think of is the home vs pro thing, except I think I did have my computer in English once in Win 8 (or 8.1) Home...

    I just wanna be able to try Cortana *Sad

    Change Windows 10 Display Language

    I have the same problem on my HP Spectre x360 bought in Switzerland. I've tried everything I could, but I cannot simply not use English as a display language, although it was always configured that way in Windows 8.1.

    The option to select English as a Display language is simply not available, nor can I use the "download" option (see first screenshot).

    Hi there

    You have to have at least PRO versions to add more languages or even the display options. HOME PREMIUM etc doesn't allow more than ONE language.

    Cheers

    Hello,

    I am having the exact same problem with Cortana not working. I think this a Microsoft at present. It seems there are a lot of posts about this issue!

    Hi, but if it allows ONE language, I could at least select English as my only language... which is not possible, even when removing the other languages. I remove German altogether, it was not listed as an option in my languages, but the display language is still... German.

    And as said, I had the Home version for Windows 8.1 and it worked. This they change the policy?
     
  12. Yep exactly the same. I used to be able to change the display language in Windows 8/8.1, not anymore tho.

    Hmm, I have Windows 10 Pro and the option to change display language is also missing for me.

    Definitely the home version does not change the Display language!
    My laptop is in Dutch and although I can set English as my default language, the Windows software remains in Dutch.
    Upgrading to PRO would give me only stuff I don't need. (domain connection etc)
    the price difference between Pro and Home in Win& is about 40 Euro's
    upgrading Windows 10 will be 99 Euro....

    a bit odd
    I will roll back to Win7, upgrade to Pro and than upgrade to Win 10 again.

    Microsoft, bad policy, but we can't make complaints with a free upgrade *Smile
