Provide a localized Windows experience

For users to be productive on their Windows 365 Cloud PC, it's important for Windows to use a display language that they're comfortable with. Users can always change the display language themselves through the Settings app in Windows. But the Windows experience is more welcoming if the user sees the right language immediately, starting when they first sign in.

There are two different ways to provide a localized Windows experience when users first sign in:

  • Use a provisioning policy. If you plan on using a gallery image, you can select the language when you create the provisioning policy. When using this method to deploy language packs, the required content is automatically installed during the provisioning process. This content is downloaded from endpoints listed on the Network endpoints for Microsoft Intune page. These Intune endpoints are a requirement for Windows 365 operation, so if the network is correctly configured they're already accessible in your environment. Make sure TCP port 80 is open for these endpoints. As explained by the Intune requirements, this port is used to download elements of the content.
  • Create a custom device image. If you plan on using a custom image and you manage your Cloud PCs through group policy, you can include the language as part of the custom image. See the following section for the links to download content for this method of deployment.

For custom image deployments, you can download display languages from the following FQDNs:
