    Windows 10 Home Single Language


    What does Windows 10 Home single language mean? Comparing to Windows 10 Home.
    I need 5 languages packs in my Windows, those are English, Chinese simplified, Chinese traditional ( Hong Kong ),Chinese Traditional (Taiwan) and Malays.
    I have installed Chinese softwares. Does Windows 10 Home single language support my requirements?

    Thank you

    Single Language means you are allowed ONLY the pre-installed language.
    You cannot install any other languages.
    Sorry.

    Windows 10 Home Single Language Edition does not allowed you to install or change languages.
    The only way to get different languages is to upgrade to Windows 10 PRO Single Language edition.

    Do you mean OS languages?

    The "language" is irrelevant at this point.
    You need to change the "Edition" from Home to Pro.

    Windows 10 Home Single Language does not allow you to change language unless you perform a complete OS reinstallation or cough up to buy a more expensive Windows 10 Pro license.

    "Windows 10 Home Single Language" is only to be used for 1 single language, both in terms of OS language display and typing language used. For example if you have Windows 10 Home Single Language English that's mean only English available for OS language display and typing. You can't install any other language.

    If you want additional language you must upgrade your Windows 10 home to pro.

    Not actually true - you can install a different language version of Home with same licence key, but each install only has one language.

    AFAIK a Chinese version is different as the licence is specific to the Chinese language (I assume this is to meet Chinese Government regulations).
