    Change Display language on HOME edition

    my laptop was delivered in my native language, Dutch.
    However, I always work in English and prefer that the Display language is also English

    My start Menu says " instellingen" and not " Setteings"

    I followed the instructions
    added a language in the settings menu Region & Language
    set the language as defailt, logged out and logged in...
    Nothing changed
    Restarting has no result also.

    Might it be that HOME versions don't have the Change Dipslay Language option?

    If it's Home Single language you may have to install a language pack.

    As far as I know, the product code isn't language specific, just version specific. If you run this utility it will tell you if your running Home SL or regular Home. Then just go here and download the version you need in the language you want and do a clean install. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10 Assuming you don't need both languages installed. I've never installed a language Pack or switched/added a second one.

    is run the following cmd

    DISM /Online /Get-Capabilities
