Unless you have Vista Ultimate or Enterprise, you'd have to
purchase and install an French version of Vista. MUI (Multilingual
User Interface) packs are only available in Windows Vista Ultimate and
Windows Vista Enterprise.
International keyboard (Windows Vista)

  1. Open your Control Panel
  2. If in Classic View, click Control Panel Home in upper-left corner
  3. Under Clock, Language, and Region, click Change keyboards or other input methods
  4. Click Change keyboards
  5. Click Add
  6. Scroll down to English (United States)
  7. If you don't see a list including United States-international, click + to expand
  8. Choose United States-International
  9. Click OK in each dialog window.
  10. Read Using the international keyboard (above) and, if necessary, Troubleshooting the international keyboard (below).

When I click on Printing preferences the whole thing comes in French could you please help me change it to english. Thank you in advance. My printer is Epson stylus CX3810


I am having problems trying to access their site at present, my internet connection is having problems, howerver http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?infoType=Doc&oid=60421&prodoid=56291069
is a link to the latest information.
I expect the setting up is similar to an HP. If you run the installation disk again, you will find the language is the first or second item in the menu. Set it to English and away you go. You can then throw that college English to French phrase book away!
Hope this helps or at least brightens up your dilema.

Stuck in french setting - need english


If you are using Windows XP (could beVista... but not certain)

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options:

Under your Regional Options Tab, be sure that it is set to English (United States) if that is where you reside.

Then go to the Language Tab, and under Text Service and Input Language, click on Details... be sure to select English under the Default Input Language. Click Apply to all windows and that should do it.

SETTINGS FROM FRENCH TO ENGLISH


There are three areas you can (or cannot) set languages.
1. Operating system (Windows most probably) Unfortunatelly you cannot change the operating system language. (Except Vista Ultimate and Vista Enterprise edition and having the right MUI)
Other windows languages are not changeable without re-installing the current op.sys. and of course you have to have the right language based op. sys. on cd or on dvd.
2. BIOS language change: It can be change if the BIOS flashable and the BIOS provider released the required version in your language. (Mostly default language is english) Some BIOS can be set to other language without flashing it. Look in the BIOS menu first. It's not easy to find if its set to another language but try every sub menu than you will find it.
3. The regional and keyboard settings. Its a basic setup in the control panel--->Regional and Language (GLOBE ICON) ---> firs and second tab you have to choose the desired language.

I have 2 questions/problems. I have an international student from the French-speaking country of Benin who is staying with me in USA. She has an Acer Extensa 5220 with OS Vista basic. Her laptop is...


I had a Chinese student with a Vista laptop so she could go through the steps below on her computer which was in Chinese and she translated from Chinese to English according to as what was on her laptop we assumed it was the same on the Vista computer in French.
1. Clicked on the Windows orb
2. Clicked on Control Panel.
3. Clicked on Network and Sharing Center.
4. Clicked on Manage wireless networks.
5. I highlighted my network and clicked on Remove. Then I fiddled around with it to find my network and forced it to connect it to my network. At least this is what I could tell because the owner of the laptop went out of town for a couple of days. Some words were close enough to English when I was messing arround. Well, it worked. I still need to know (for any later problems) how to switch her computer into English and back to French for when I have to troubleshoot another problem for her. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web. And, I assume, can write papers on it for school. She is in a Masters program here in USA.

I have a logitech keyboard (model S10) and some how I switched it on to it's french keyboard setting. How do I cahnce it back to the english keyboard setting. Thanks!


delete the French from the keyboard setup section in windows, to cycle between them there should be a little box on the task bar if it is not locked this will, if clicked, offer selection of languages you have installed to use on the computer.En will be English and Fr is French etc etc.
