You can change some language settings in Control Panel/Regional/Languages, but the toolbars and others will stay in French.
It's a great chance to learn French !
The retailer may be able to help you-take it back and ask.

I have a packard bell netbook windows7 that have french langauge. how can i change french to english?


You have to reinstall the operating system of your computer and use an English installer. Make sure to click on English as your operating system's language. That option can be found in the very beginning of the installation process.

I hope this helps,

Chose Canadin French instead of Canadian English by accident

Yes you are right: it is a one time option. You can however install other languages. You will switch from the Canadian French keyboard to the US or English Canadian keyboard by pressing Shift Alt. You will console yourself if I told you that I type mainly in French, but the physical keyboard is US and I cannot even use the Alt + Ascii code to put the accents where due, because the laptop does not have numeric pad.

Hope it helps.

My Acer Aspire One only accepts French in the Spell Checker. H0w to change to English?

It sounds like you installed the French dictionary.
You need to install the English one, the dictionary is on your Word Processor installation CD. Don't forget to remoce the French dictionary.

Changing language

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.
