  1. Edge in wrong Language

    I am updating Edge on my work PC and for whatever reason its installing to a non-English language. I have tried the settings in edge to change the display language but English is not a option either USA or UK. The PC itself is set to English. All other apps use English. It just the edge install that for so reason will not work.

    Any ideas?

  2. Windows 10 Installed in the Wrong Language?


    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    To assist you better I would like to know, what was the base language for your previous Operating system?

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Remove the Existing language.

    • Press Windows + X on your keyboard.

    • Select Control panel.

    • Select language.

    • Click on the Option adjacent to the
      Existing language.

    • Click on remove under input method.
    Step 2: Add English Language.

    • Press Windows + X on your keyboard.

    • Select Control panel.

    • Select language.

    • Click on Add language.

    • Add the English language from the given list.

    If you want a language pack:

    You may refer to the suggestions posted by Andre Da Costa on the following thread.

    Tooltips displayed in the wrong language

    Although my version of Windows is set to English and the GPU-Z "Tooltip Language" appears as "System Default (English (United Kingdom))", the tooltips are appearing in the language corresponding to my system locale (or possibly keyboard layout), not the actual system language. I frequently change the keyboard layout and date format (to match the clients I'm working for and the language I'm writing in), but the system language never changes (and software is supposed to run in that language).

    I can manually select "English (United States)", but this basically makes it impossible for me to select the "correct" language (i.e., UK English), because it doesn't appear in the list (other than as "system default" - but is then ignored). Obviously it makes no difference to me if it's in UK or US English, but people with other language combinations might have a problem.

    It seems the routine that populates the language list in the options is (correctly) determining the system language, but the routine that actually generates the tooltips is (incorrectly) reading the system locale instead of language.
