    Windows 10 home wont fully change to English language


    My son was given a laptop from a Spanish friend, and it was set to fully Spanish.

    I worked my way though the usual to change it over to English, and have got it in English for the most part.
    Added English pack, removed Spanish, set all setting for English for new users and welcome.
    I've even created a new Administrator, since "Administador" was annoying. And hoped that would set it all to English.

    However there are some parts that remain in Spanish, like certain parts in the computer management, or any of the old command prompt programs output (like sfc and dskchk have Spanish outputs).

    How do we get it to purely English throughout? I don't even mind a reinstall, but it didn't come with a disc for windows 10 home.
    Or can you download an install from Microsoft to install over itself, using it's current licence?

    :)

    Win10 – Language change Arabic to English

    I just bought a 2nd hand laptop by occasion and it has only one problem: the Windows 10 was installed in Arabic language and I need it in English. I do not read/speak Arabic language.
    I looked over many YouTube videos in Arabic and English language about how to change the language in Win10. Unfortunately my screens that I see in Arabic language do not match the screens seen in Arabic on YouTube videos/tutorials, so I cannot do a blind click-click and by chance to change it into English.
    I can make print screens and then put them in USB stick and upload them here on EE from another PC – that I figure it out.
    I do not want to reinstall Win10 from scratch, but of course that is the last option.
    Below are the first steps which leaded me to, I hope, Language and Regional Settings in Win10, but where to click further and what to choose?
    I really need your guidance in step by step with pictures where shall I click in order to install the English language.
    A tutorial in English does not help. I need a tutorial (step by step) in Arabic with pictures.
