Windows 10: Display langage reverted back
Hi, can you post a screenshot like this please?
Note: to create a screenshot you can use the Windows snipping tool (Type 'snip' in tehe search box should find it) or use a (free) 3rd party program like PickPick, Duckcapture etc.
I'm thinking you may have to remove your Italian language pack and reapply it.

dalchina, thanks a lot for pointing me to a crucial screen: I compared your screen with my "german" screen and I understood that the italian language pack was not installed. Unfortunately the standard procedure to install a language pack doesn't work: it freezes and goes back to the initial screen. It does that for every language pack.
Provided that I don't receive any suggestion (and I understand it's tough as I don't provide precise information) I'm about to give up going for a restore to factory settings
I suggest you do a couple of routine checks:
Press Windows key + X, Click command prompt (admin), type chkdsk C: /F
Wait for this to complete.
If ok, proceed, else post the result.
2. Press Windows key + X, Click command prompt (admin), type sfc /scannow
Wait for this to complete- could be 15mins+
Post the result.
(Noted it might be helpful to complete your specs)
I followed the suggested actions: everything OK from step 1. and I attach as requested the output for step 2.
for convenience I attach the google translation
I'm ready to act following suggestions (if any) before...going through the restore (please don't misunderstand, I'm not looking forward doing it).
I appreciate in any case your help
Ok, that's fine, but I guess if didn't help - and I'm not surprised as it will be a setting problem rather than a system file. But we also know your disk is ok.
Now, you said you had received an update since installing your Italian language pack. Try uninstalling any Windows updates, let them reinstall (run Windows update) and see what language you have on the display.
If that doesn't help, I'm going to recommend you do an in-place upgrade repair install to try to get back to a consistent situation.
Someone has noted this warning for cumulative updates:
Important If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before you install this update
Before asking help in this forum (actually to you) I rolled back the system to a sync point: the sync point I've chosen was the situation BEFORE the windows update. Nothing changed for my "language situation"
What do you exactly mean for "in-place upgrade repair install" ? It would be more than enough if you point me to a documentation, don't waste your time, I feel guilty with you
OK, thanks for the heads-up !
One more thought.. can you post the equivalent of this:
I just had to redownload my UK pack- sthg I've been meaning to do after an in-place upgrade install a week or so ago.. previously it was listed, but as 'not installed'.
Exactly like my Italian package: in the equivalent of your screen in post #2 is listed but marked as "non installed".
Here the screen you asked me:
The English package is part of the tests I'm doing (I'm exhausted) but what I'm experiencing is equal for every language: I always have just something in Italian and the majority of the screens in German regardless the language I choose as display language
Right, that's what I suspected.
So now you need to navigate thru the Settings dialogues until you can manage to install the pack.
Oddly, I've just been thru that. Eventually you can find how to re-download it.
However, the next stage after that is to get rid of the 'Search results aren't quite ready yet' even tho' indexing is complete when searching Settings.
I know you folks must have heard this one already.
When I try to customize my font size display settings (see attached), they revert back to default after a reboot.

Sadly I have reverted back to Windows 7 for the time being due to a number of issues i have faced with Windows 10. It is an amazing OS yes, but it is not stable yet in terms of performance. I shall upgrade back after Threshold 2 releases i.e in...
I upgraded to Windows 10. I didn't like it. I reverted back to 8.1. Now, every time I turn my laptop on, the Windows Update screen pops up and starts installing Windows 10. I have changed auto update settings to ask me first, but to no avail. I...
I decided to update by Win8.1 PC to Windows 10. I need to update soon as I am moving to an area with only 1-4mb broadband so downloads will be slow.
Checked compatability- all showed fine. Downloaded iso and ran it. Installation went ok.
