    Dialog Box still display in other language after changed system lang


    I have attempted to change the language of my windows 10 professional desktop to French. Seems not all of the operating system is in French. For instance when I go to control panel>system>system>advanced settings, the dialog box is still in English. Any help with this is greatly appreciated. I have searched this forum and others, including a general web search but I cannot find any help on this issue.

    What I have already done:
    1. Start>Settings>Language, Language and Region>Add Language>French France
    2. Clicked French and set as default language
    3. From the Region drop-down, I selected France
    4. Clicked Additional settings at the bottom of window
    5. Select Language
    6. Downloaded Language Pack
    7. Click Back, then Back again
    8. Select Region
    9. From the Format drop-down, select France
    10. On the Localization tab, from the drop-down, selected France.
    11. Start>Store
    12. From the profile drop-down, selected download updates
    13. Installed all updates.

    Please, any help with this is greatly appreciated. I cannot film help support videos in French with English dialog boxes appearing in my videos.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried restarting? I find when changing the display language, I need to log off, log on, then I get a black screen, so CTRL ALT DEL, log off again, log on.

    Completely changing language to satisfy
    a. Cortana
    b. Not getting a message 'Search results aren't quite ready yet' when searching Settings
    is relatively difficult and obscure.

    Hi, see:
    Display language doesnt change in Mail and Calendar apps for Windows 10 - Outlook

    Can only suggest 2 other settings offhand, which are not obviously relevant:

    but I would be surprised if those help...

    Also check what happens if you search Settings... do you get an error message?
    What you are seeing may be related to the need one person found to
    a. uninstall updates
    b. apply language
    c. reinstall updates
    Albeit this was related to the error message when searching Settings.

    On mine under control panel>system>system>advanced settings, dialogue spelling is English UK FWIW.
