Go to the control panel > Regional and Language Settings. Go through all the tabs and boxes and change to English-United States. Make sure you change the location to United States and go through the keyboard settings and keep United States and remove all overs.

    Well, we will have to use the symbols of the icons to work our way through this. First, look at the desktop and look for the icon that looks like a monitor leaning back. It is blue and silver in color. This is the Control Panel. If you do not have this icon on the desktop, then you will have to click on the start button. Look in the dark gray menu to the right side, the third entry from the bottom is the control panel. Click on the control panel.



    If you are in the right spot, you will see many, many icons....Look for the icon that has the globe of the Earth with a clock superimposed by it. When this window pops up you will see 4 tabs across the top.

    The first tab is "Formats", click on the first drop down menu arrow and scroll down to "English (United States), click apply.



    Now, cick on the next tab over and that is "Location". From the drop down menu, choose "United States". Click apply.



    Now go to the third tab, that is "Keyboards and Language", click on the first button, this will open another window. From the first drop down menu, choose "English (United States)-US, the english keyboard will now appear in the next section below. Remove all the other keyboards that are present by clicking on them and then click the remove button. Now click on the "Language Bar" tab next. Click on the "Hidden" circle and uncheck all the boxes below. Click apply and ok to clear this window.



    Now click on the last tab and that is "Administrative", Click on the button in the first half of that window, this is the system location. When you click on this button, another drop down manu appears, scroll until you see "English (United States). Click OK, and click apply. now the system will ask you to reboot....you have to reboot now for the system to change location and change all settings to English. Reboot as instructed.



    When the system reboots, go back to the control panel > Regional and Language Settings. Go back to the "Administrative" tab. At the bottom of the window, click on the button that says "Copy to reserved accounts". Check both boxes and click OK, then click apply and ok again to clear the window.

How to totally change the language in everything on fujitsu lifebook s series s7110?


I am assuming, that it is presently Japanese. The only way to change all the languge is to install an English,(or other language),version of Windows. You can replace the Japanese version, or add the English version as a second Windows. The later will require double the memory space.
