Reader Greg H. wrote to ask for help with a child-induced problem:
Well, this is a new one. My kid’s PC starts up displaying a foreign language! How did this occur and how can I get back to English on the screen?
Thanks for any tips you can offer.
I wrote back to Greg to point him to the right dialog boxes to reset his Windows "language" to English.
The route is Control Panel > “Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options” > “Regional and Language Options”
On the Regional Options tab, there’s a pulldown that lets you select the language setting for your copy of Windows.
Select English (United States) and click OK or Apply.
