    [Win10] How to Remove Language Packs in Powershell


    Friday, 12.08.2017

    Try this.

    In Powershell ISE (admin mode), run the cmd lines bellow. If necessary, replace en-US by the one you want to keep:

    1. See which language packs are instaled:

    Code:
    Get-WinUserLanguageList
    2. Removes them all except en-US:

    Code:
    Set-WinUserLanguageList en-US -Force
    Good luck,

    Thanks MikeMacanic!

    This is what it shows now but I haven't rebooted yet after doing that registry delete mentioned earlier so will try again if it shows up again.

    Try to overwrite en-US by adding another language, let say en-UK. That would tell if you have corrupted files.

    Set-WinUserLanguageList en-UK -Force

    Then reinstall en-US and set it back to default.

    Set-WinUserLanguageList en-US -Force

    All the best,

    Try en-GB Instead


    I was able to reproduce the exact same error: -2147024809

    Got it now!

    When installing English UK, the Get cmd line shows en-GB. See below

    Code:
    PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-WinUserLanguageList
    LanguageTag     : en-US

    Happy New Year with many best wishes MikeMecanic and everyone!

    Thanks for your solution, now I have a question... Is there a reason Get-WinUserLanguageList would show two en-US entries?

    Probably the reason English-UK is called English-GB is because UK doesn't really have a kingdom anymore and they rather be known as Great Britain.
