    How do you change your OS display language?
    - from the Tutorial section I've found you:
    Language - Add, Remove, and Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    But note there are pitfalls. You must also download and change the speech language as well.

    Cortana will probably give you a message if language settings are not consistent.

    The final test is if you can still search Settings. If you haven't changed your Region, display and speech languages etc to match, you will get a strange message about search results not being quite ready yet when you try to search Settings.

    The keyboard setting does not matter in this respect.

    I have had trouble with this, and recommend you create a full disk image (e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) before doing so, so you can easily revert to that if you get into difficulties. MS has not made this as easy as it should be.

    Note: everyone should use disk imaging routinely so as to get out of difficulty without tech help by restoring a previously created image. Even helps as a backup and if your disk fails.
