Hello
You cant change your language on your laptop true control panel, you need to reformat your laptop in the English language. the options in control panel is just for your regional settings and keyboard settings and so on.

only OS that you can change language in is the Vista Ultimate and then you need to install a language pack.

Change language fr french to english!


Hi There,
The method used depends on the version of Windows you are running.

You can right click on the task bar (where the running programs are shown along with the start button) and choose Toolbars... ' Language Bar. The language bar will now be shown, and you can click this, choose settings ' Add... and choose English.

If the language bar option is not available, and you are running Windows XP, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the second tab and down at the bottom there is an option to change to English. It will ask you to logout (it may be in French) so click OK and when you log back in you should be set to English.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, open control panel and choose "Options régionales et linguistiques". From here, choose the third tab and there is a button to install/uninstall languages.
Please post back if you have more questions.

Hi there,

Well first of all you may Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel, to open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options after then you may select English Language. The Key Settings button is available only if you have added multiple languages or keyboard layouts.

My friend has an Acer laptop and when he put in the language he saw Canada listed and set his computer up in the French Language. Now he is Inuit and can only speak and read Inuktitut or English. How can...


Go to Google Translate and use it to translate from French to English. It is a translating application you can use to read the French setup on the computer. You'll need another computer to do the translation.

My hp laptop,the menu and settings is all in French and I need it to be back in English.


Language settings should be in the Regional Settings in the windows control panel. That of course could be a little tough for you if unable to decipher French. You could perhaps use the system restore utility to roll the system back to a point before the language got changed, but you could lose any recent files you may have saved as well. And since you're probably stuck in French either way, it's probably better to "wing it" in the regional settings. If you can get "English" selected that way, shut down and reboot to make the change effective.

Hope it works out for you.

Chose french windows instead english windows by accident and need to change it


Open Regional and Language Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region and then clicking Regional and Language Options.
Click the Keyboards and Languages tab.
Under Display language, choose a language from the list, and then click OK.
Obviously you'll have to work out the French equivalents of the options but should be fairly obvious
