    Windows 10 set to Japanese - struggling to get it to English


    So some how, my friend has set his default language to Japanese.

    I've tried to follow youtube guides, but the windows 10 version is a little different.

    Is there i can do this via powershell to get it back to English, or something i can run please?

    Its hard to follow the vidoes, as i get different menus to the ones in the videos and the letters doesn't match up.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Switching Japanese Windows with English menus


    Yes, I do mean those keys. I tried just switching to Japanese keyboard, as you suggested, but those keys didn't work. Also, the selection key is normally the spacebar in Japan but I could only get IME to work with the Tab key (for those who aren't familiar with Japanese typing: you type in Roman characters, then press a selection key and it steps you through a list of options for the word you are typing in Japanese characters). Did you get the special keys to work as they do in native Japanese mode?

    It may well be that I was missing something, although I did try every option I could think of. In any event, as I said, I gave in and now have Japanese Windows running with English menus and everything seems to be working perfectly.
    Thanks,

    Mike

    Switching Japanese Windows with English menus


    I have just reinstalled my PC with Japanese Windows (it's the only way to enable the full use of a Japanese keyboard - special keys etc.). However, I want my system language to be English (menus etc.). So far I have tried the following:

    Settings:
    Installed English language pack
    Made English default language

    Power menu (not sure of proper name - win_key-x):
    Tried to switch language to English but does not appear in the menu.

    Suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Mike
