Problems with changing System Language of my Laptop (Windows 10)

Hi! I'm just concerned about changing the system language of my laptop since I changed everything in the Settings > Language sections part of the system and changed everything that I see to English. But there are still some icons and my system still sees Chinese as the default as is seen in when I type lpksetup in CTRL + R. It says I can't remove Chinese because it's the main system language of my laptop. Is there any fix to changing that? It's kinda irritating to see some in English, and some in Chinese when I can't even speak Chinese. Thank you!

Hi,

You cannot change the language of the windows installer. You need to download an English version of Windows 10 ISO.

You can download it from Microsoft by using the media creation tool which can be found here. Download and run the tool. Follow the on screen instructions.

No good. It just automatically downloaded another Chinese version of Win 10.:

Now I have 2 OS's I can't use

In case you are using Windows 10 Single Language, you couldn't change it, but if it is NOT single language, you may download language pack , go to Settings->Time & Language->Language and you could add English and set it as your Windows Display Language and then restart your PC.

That's the only option in the preferred language, yet it baffles me to see that Chinese is still my system language. I also don't see any option to make English as my Windows Display Language. And yes, I'm in Windows 10 Pro. But yeah, any solutions to that? Thanks!

The Windows display language is correct one based on your screenshot.
In this case, I suggest report this issue through Feedback Hub app.

Hi,
Even if you change the display language, some text in menus and dialog boxes for some programs might not be in the language that you want. This happens because the program might not support Unicode.

Follow the steps below to change the system locale:
Click Start
Type Control Panel in search bar and click on it
Click Region and Language
Click Administrative tab
Click Change system locale tab (If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation)
From drop down menu, check and make sure the language is selected as you require and click OK
Restart computer and check.

Hope above information can help you.

I just checked and my system locale's already set to English (US). That's very weird. Any more solutions you might have in mind other than reformatting and just going from there? Thank you!

Hi,

What is the language pre-installed on this computer?
You may need to reinstall.

I checked and it's Simplified Chinese. Kinda a bit of a hassle considering I don't really read into Chinese that much. But yeah, I'll consider reinstalling if there aren't any more options available. Thanks for the help!
