    That fixed the problem. Thank you, thank you, thank you

    I inadvertantly pressed the check "save" button on French instructions while scrolling for English in installing my Lexmark X4850. I then backed out of the installation process -- removing the disc of instructions, shutting down the computer and unplugging the Lexmark, as I couldn't figure out how to get the instruction window to read in English. Now, I need to "unsave" the French so I can get English on the screen, and start over again installing with the disc instructions. I have Vista on my Dell Computer. Thanks. AG

If you have just connected the power to the unit for a first time install and turned it on, use the up/down arrows to get to the correct language. Then click OK.

If you are past that point and have to change the language. On the product control, click the button next to the copy button on the all-in-one. Then on the control panel, touch the top right corner, the left middle side and then the left bottom corner (one at a time) to access the Language Menu.

If you also need to change the region, press the button beside to Set Region to get that list. Use the arrows to change the region and click OK.

Finally hit the Back button twice to exit the menu. for pictures/details.
