    The Administrative tab in Regional and Language settings is used to manage your computer’s language. So, if someone alters these settings, the display text of non-Unicode programs will be altered. If you want to see this setting, open Command Prompt and click Region.

    Cortana not recognising UK region setting

    Hi Laurence,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would like to inform you that as of now Cortana is only available for U.S.-English. Though search will work in all languages.

    I suggest you to change the Language and Region to English (United States), United States to explore Cortana.

    You may follow below steps to perform the same.

    • Press windows key + x
    • Open Control Panel.
    • If you’re in the standard view, open Clock, Language, and Region and then click Region.
    • In Region change the following settings:
      • Go to Formats tab and set format as English (United States).
      • Go to Location tab and set Home Location as United States.
      • Go to Administrative tab and set Current System Locale to English (United States).
    4. In Clock, Language, and Region, click Languages and make sure English (United States) is set as your primary language. If you don’t have the language install, click on Add a language, search for English (United States), install
    it, and set it as your primary.

    5. Re-boot your computer and you should now be able to use Cortana outside of the US.

    Hope these information helps, please get back to us for future support, we’ll be glad to assist you further.
     
  3. Cortana disabled due to region and language setting

    I'm very confused about Cortana experience.

    As I tried to set it I had this fancy message: "disabled due to region and language setting".

    Yes my language is English and my region is Italy.

    However Cortana READ my sms and ask me (in Italian) if I like to reply or not.

    So I feel Cortana is working (maybe partially) but I have no power on setting it.

    I liked to have English as primary language ( I use to travel lot in Europe) but It seems not the case.

    Any suggestion please. Many thanks.
