    Change default language

    Have a clients PC, Windows 10 Home, that the default language was changed from French (Canadian) to English by a tech for troubleshooting here . (Florida)
    They're going back home (Canada) and wants the default language restored to the French.
    I'm not the original tech and plead ignorance since I've never done this.
    So I can here.
    Anyone have a step by step?

    That tutorials are quite long to read. You really have two options:

    Change default language in Settings (if tech only added English and set it default)

    Change default language-image.png
    or change your install language (if tech was a bit advanced and change install (more than default) language to English:

    See tutorial by Brink:
    If you have to check which is install lang, there is very similar tut for this too.
