    Win8 to 10 - Empty Optional Features


    I've got a Dell Venue 11 Pro which I've upgraded from 8.1 to 10

    I'm was trying to change my Regional settings to be UK which worked fine, but when I wanted to change the Speech from English (US) to English (UK) it won't let me. It only shows English (US) in the drop down box. So I when to Manage Optional Features, clicked on Add a feature and I have nothing in there.

    Anyone got any idea why this is empty and how I can fix it?

    Thanks

    I've done a clean install and it is working OK. An upgrade issue perhaps? I don't have a non clean installed system to check...

    Not sure on the blank list issue

    but try this to get the English UK speech (I have done this so mine is different and have to refer to memory)
    from the Region and Language section
    highlight the English UK under languages
    you should now get a pop up with an Options button
    click this and it allows you to download English UK speech

    once that has finished go back to the Speech option and UK should be there in the dropdown

    Tried that. When I click on the Speech Language (which is Engligh (US)), nothing happens. I get the little \/ downdown menu, but it only shows the US and gives no other options.

    Thanks

    :-) I'd accept that - if only I got anything in the list.

    I've also got another PC (Another Dell), I had Technical Preview on it from the start. It's now got Full win10 Pro and it also has the same issue in that the Optional Features is empty. While it is an in-place upgrade, it is an upgrade from TP to Win10. Also someone else with a Dell Venue that was upgraded has the same issue.

    My self built PC at home had the same version of Tech Preview installed, I've upgraded that via windows update (same as the 2 above). That does have optional installs available.

    Don't want to jump to conclusions, but it seems to be the Dells that have the issue.
