    ..................Also cant download language pack ....................


    Left click at Start button > Settings > Time & Language > left side, click Region & Language > right side, under Languages, click the + sign > scroll and find English > click it > select which English you want English (United Staes), English (United Kingdom), English (Canada) etc > click the selection >
    You are now back on Time and language screen > click the English version you selected > click Option > language pack will be offered to you > install it.
    When done, you will be back to Time & Language screen > right click the English > click Set as default.
    You will have to restart the computer to initiate the switch from Japanese to English as display language.
    You will find some items still carry Japanese language, but majority will be in English.

    Hope this helps.
    I used the same method to switch from English to Chinese as display language.


    Adding/editing......................

    The followings are screenshots to illustrate the change of English as display language to Chinese as display language.

    I'd like to know which Win 10 Home version do you have.
    To find out.......
    in your search bar next to the Start button, type winver > Enter.
    The screen that opens up will show you which version you have, whether it is 10240 or 10586.

    Mine looks like this..................

    That's perfectly fine.
    Thanks for the concern.
    For good measure I'll edit the screenshots a bit.
