    Changed language from French to English, but some text is very wrong


    I updated Windows on my kids pc today, and it reverted the language to the original install language of French. After a lot of hassle why is it so hard to change a language ... I got it to about 98% English, but some things are still very wrong.

    This image gives you a great example of the kind of things that are happening. The entire left side is wrong text.

    Google results have been less than helpful, and the live chat assistant closed the chat on me after they went to check on the issue for 10 minutes. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    :)

    Change default language

    Have a clients PC, Windows 10 Home, that the default language was changed from French (Canadian) to English by a tech for troubleshooting here . (Florida)
    They're going back home (Canada) and wants the default language restored to the French.
    I'm not the original tech and plead ignorance since I've never done this.
    So I can here.
    Anyone have a step by step?
    Pete
