    Region settings


    Has the 2004 edition of win 10 pro have different Region setting to the 1909 win 10 edition because I have a program that keeps asking to adjust the reign settings to allow it to work . After changing all different settings i still get the fault.

    The program runs on a 1909 edition with out the region issue.

    trying to sort out if the software need up dating or if win 2004 reads differently to older versions.

    I have been in contact with the software company and they say its a problem with windows?

    :)

    Google Region settings in Chrome keep reverting back to Current Region

    For years I have used the same search settings in Google. 1: Display 30 results per page and 2: region should be the USA (even though I now live in Israel.)

    I use Google Chrome and have the latest version. Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    For the past few days, after a few visits to my home page (google.com) The settings revert back to ISRAEL as the region. I keep putting it back to the USA but after a few minutes of browsing, it keeps going back to Israel.

    On other browsers (FF, Opera, etc) this does not happen.
    Meaning, when I go to search settings\region, in Chrome it will be set to my current region and in other browsers, it will be set to the USA.

    This itself is confusing because I would think that the changes made to the Google account settings should be global and not browser cookie-based.

    These are the things I have already tried and did not work:

    1. Logging out of all other locations and logging back in.
    2. Using this url: Google
    3. Clearing all history, cookies, etc.
    4. Allowing Google cookies.
    5. Location is disabled in my Google account settings.
    6. No one else is using my Google account.
    7. No other apps are changing this setting.

    I spent hours searching this issue on Google forums, but no one gave any more suggestions as to what’s causing this and why it only started happening a few days ago.

    What else could be causing this and what can I do?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Note: After changing the region to the USA, it will stay like that even after clearing the cache and refreshing the page a few times. But if I visit Google.com after about 10 minutes, that's when it reverts back to the current region.

    So it seems that any region cookie that's being saved is on a timer or something.

    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.
