  1. Region format settings won't apply properly


    I want to use the UK date format while not using the UK English keyboard which turns out to be impossible. This post says to go into control panel and change the settings manually: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/can-i-use-the-uk-date-and-time-format-while-not/fea059f5-3213-4cb7-8a14-6a4d386ba40a However for me that doesn't work. Nothing changes and it defaults back to English US with all the corresponding date and time formats: https://i.imgur.com/EOdl6OW.png

  4. Region format settings won't apply properly

    cortana won`t talk to me

    Hi Steven,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    It's unfortunate that you are facing this issue. Let me assist you to resolve the issue.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • Check and verify if Cortana is activated?
    • Does Cortana search and gives any output/result on screen?
    • Is the Language and region settings set to valid value?
    • Check and verify if Cortana available in your region?
    Method 1:

    I suggest you to try to turn Cortana off and then try turning it on back and check if she talks. Refer to the steps below to turn Off and On Cortana:

    • Open Cortana.
    • Click the hamburger button in the top left of the window.
    • Go to Settings and click on off.
    • Follow the same steps to turn it on.
    • Check if issue persists.
    I would suggest you to refer to the article given below and check if that helps.
