  1. Region Settings on Windows 10


    Hello, I have a question regarding Microsoft's region settings on Windows 10.Even if I am not living in the US, if I set my Region Settings to United States, will it be deemed illegal by Microsoft?Hope I was able to ask clearly. The reason why I ask this, is because when I set my Region to my own country, I can't use Windows search bar for internet.But if I set it to United States, then it allows me to search the internet.A reply from a Microsoft employee who is fully aware of this answer will be much appreciated.Thank you.

    :)

    Hi Dig,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    This issue might occur if region settings is done correctly.

    2. Type “devmgmt.msc” without the quotes and hit on Enter Key.

    3. Expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the DVD drive for which you want to change region settings and then click
    Properties.

    4. On the DVD Region tab.

    5. Under list of regions, scroll down the mouse to search for Australia from the list and click on it.

    6. Then region 4 will be listed below, then click on Ok button.
