    There are several other places where the displayed language is not the one configured asWindows display language English.


    To give a little bit of context, my computer initially came with Windows 10 Home 64bit French RESTRICTED TO AFRICA ONLY I then switched toWindows 10 Pro 64Bit currently Version 1909 - OS Build 18363.657 and installed English United Kingdom Local Experience Pack.


    Is there any way I can fix that?

    :)

    My Windows 10 display language is weirdly mixed between French and English

    Recovering display language English

    Hi

    I am aware that this is a topic on different threads.

    My laptop has windows 10 home build 1803 with English (US) as the default display language. Today I added French as the display language using the instructions on settings. It worked (though gave me grief as the keyboard layout changed from QWERTY to the
    French equivalent (AZERY or equiv). The language was useful for an essay.

    Now I want to go back to English: but cannot. Click: Settings, Time and Language, Region and Language, Display Language - English (US) - all is ok. BUT, the page does not hold English(US) and resets back to French. There is no "Select as default" key.
    Restart doesn't help.

    There is "Add another language" key and a list of languages but ENGLISH (US) is shaded out and cannot be selected. I have tried to load English (UK) but nothing happenend, even though it went through the motions.

    If I click on Extra settings for date, time and region ("Parametres de date, d'heure et regionaux supplementaires) there are only subsets for time and region - not language (whereas on another computer there is a section on language).

    Queries:

    If Win 10 HOME does not allow alternative languages, why was the addition of French accepted - OR does it mean that I have changed languages not added another. There is only one language allowed and that now is French?

    If so (ie only 1 language is allowable) , how can I change language back to English? [ Please note that + add a language did not work - see above]

    Will system restore work?

    Thanks
