    Hello, can someone tell me how to upgrade from single language to multi language windows 10 ? I got windows 10 installed on HP computer in a different country and it's only single language. Can we find a key on internet ? Thanks for your help.
    Yes, buy a new authentic key, then enter it as mentioned above. There is no magic free key that will do it, and be legally activated afterwards. You should be able to change the language (if that's all you want to do) without upgrading though?

    Well, you can always add a Language pack for your preferred language. Problem is, when you get a major update (as I did from 12040 to 1511) you only get updated for the base-language - you have to add the language packs all over again.

    My PC (despite being made for the UK market) had an OEM Windows 7 EN-US installed. The first upgrade to 12040 could only be done in the language of the original OS, so my Window 10 Home (12040) was also EN-US. When the time came for 1511 I decided to change all this. First I upgraded to 1511 EN-US (you can only do an upgrade to the same language if you wish to keep your installed programmes). Then I did an in-place install of 1511 EN-GB. At both installs I was offered the option to keep existing files and programmes. As you can see, it worked:
