    Hi there

    You have to have at least PRO versions to add more languages or even the display options. HOME PREMIUM etc doesn't allow more than ONE language.

    Cheers

    Hmm, I have Windows 10 Pro and the option to change display language is also missing for me.

    Definitely the home version does not change the Display language!
    My laptop is in Dutch and although I can set English as my default language, the Windows software remains in Dutch.
    Upgrading to PRO would give me only stuff I don't need. (domain connection etc)
    the price difference between Pro and Home in Win& is about 40 Euro's
    upgrading Windows 10 will be 99 Euro....

    a bit odd
    I will roll back to Win7, upgrade to Pro and than upgrade to Win 10 again.

    Microsoft, bad policy, but we can't make complaints with a free upgrade

    Its all because of your language priority/preferences, easy to solve in win10.

    Go to Control Panel/Clock, language, and region/Language...
    then just move your preferred existing languages (or add the one required) up or down accordingly, should then default to this.

    Check your windows app menu and see after :-)

    Hi there

    I think there are restrictions if you don't have at least W10 PRO.
    If you have GERMAN I don't think you can switch it to ENG.

    With PRO I don't have any problems.

    cappuccino and chaimdan,
    I don't have a solution for you, but Windows 10 Home is fully capable to Add languages, install language packs, as well as change Display language.
    Here is my screenshot taken from my Win 10 Home 64-bit 10586.17
    P.S. I had to use United States as country/region because Cortana will not work if I use Canada.

    In your post #5, you said .... " I just wanna be able to try Cortana "
    May I ask, what country you are at ?
