I accidently changed the language on my 205 series. I think its French but am not sure. How do I get it back to English?


  • On the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP press TOOLS (The spanner symbol) in the bottom right corner
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a settings icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items on it. VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If it's in French you won't know which is which but it will show the language beside the TEXT LANGUAGE icon. Francais is the French word for French. To change the voice language press VOICE and select an English speaking name. To change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

This should solve your problem.

Go into Control Panel, select Region and Language, choose a display language by installing English first.
You may need your Windows Installation Disc!

Change language from french to english on acer 1 laptop


If you wish to change the language you must download a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Unfortunately such is only supported by Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate, so as a Home Premium user there is nothing you can really do unless you are willing to either upgrade to Ultimate or purchase an English copy.

When typing question marks & puctuation...French comes up


In Control Panel, double click "Regional and Language Options". Click the Languages Tab and then the Details button. Make sure that English is selected as the Default Input Language. If French is listed as an available keyboard layout and you don't need it there, you can remove it to make sure it doesn't switch itself again.
I hope this helps. Good Luck.

My computer is all in french and i wanna change it to english


What was your original language?

If it was original in english and you changed. goto Control Panel, Regional and Language option and make sure everything is set for english .

If your original XP installation was in French, then you may have to obtain an English XP CD and re-install.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
