    How do you change language settings for non-unicode programs in Win10?


    Installed a chinese application earlier called Kuwo Music Player. I have been using this particular application for quite some time and today is the first occasion where I decided to give it a go on Windows 10 too. Then came the problem, I realised that the settings to change the system locale ( this is necessary otherwise the chinese characters cannot be displayed) is no longer where it was in Windows 7/8. I too couldn't find any helpful results on the Internet. So hopefully someone knows where I can find and change that setting, or any other working solution would do. Thanks in advance.

    Setting the System Locale for non-Unicode programs is in Windows 10 in exactly the same place as it was in Windows 7 & 8:

    It's easy when you know that you need to press Win+X to open the old-style Control Panel. It's NOT obvious when you start with W10.

    You can also type "Control Panel" into Cortana and go straight there. Ditto for "Region" to go straight to that Control Panel element.
