How to Remove a Language in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can add different languages to install and use for the display language, text-to-speech (Narrator), speech recognition, handwriting, and keyboard layout.

This tutorial will show you how to completely uninstall a language for your account in Windows 10.

Here's How:

1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Time & Language icon.

2. Click/tap on Region & language on the left side. (see screenshot below)

Starting with Windows 10 build 17686, you will click/tap on Language on the left side instead.

3. Click/tap on the language (ex: "English (United Kingdom)") you want to remove on the right side, and click/tap on Remove.

If the language you want to remove is listed at the top of your language list as the "default" language, you will need to click/tap on the down arrow so it's no longer listed at the top, select another language, and then select the language you want to remove again.
