    Windows 10 Display Language -- Change from US to UK

    Hi All

    I have created a image which has been deployed out to ~100 machines or so. We have only realised that the windows display language is set to "English (united states). We need this to say "English (United Kingdom)

    I have downloaded the English UK pack and have deployed this out to machines, this now installs and when i go to Windows display language it allows me to change it from US to UK.

    I need help with automating this step as i do not want to email users to change this. How can i automate this via regedit or a script.

    I have tried the following command

    $LangList = Get-WinUserLanguageList
    $MarkedLang = $LangList | where LanguageTag -eq "en-US"
    Set-WinUserLanguageList $LangList -Force

    but it returns back with false

    On the machine when i do a powershell and check the language using $LangList = Get-WinUserLanguageList it does not state that the US is there but only UK. But when i check in control pane both languages are displayed.

    Any ideas guys

    Not knowing which method you use to deploy Windows on those 100 or so computers, I am not sure if this is something you could use.

    A repair install is a feature in-place upgrade using install media for the same Windows version and edition than the underlying OS. If you repair install Windows 10 with install media with different regional version of same base language, the display language will be changed, but all settings, installed apps and software and user data is kept intact.

    An example: Running repair install on EN-US Windows 10 using EN-GB install media shows this:

    Click image for larger version.

    Clicking OK, a repair / in-place upgrade will be done, and EN-US system language changed to EN-GB. All user data, settings and software will be preserved as long as the base language, English in this case, is the same.

    If possible, you could push "upgrade" to all your computers, using EN-GB media for same version and edition currently installed on those machines.

    If that does not work for you, see this PowerShell script:
