I am having issues getting Windows 7 to change my system language to English. I followed the normal process but it's not completely changing it. I want to verify if my


key is set correctly. Current values are:


can anyone with Windows 7 with english as the system language post their said key values?

Yes I've got these.

Why don't you change it from the usual way? Download it from Windows Update and set your language at Control Panel -> Region and language -> Keyboard and Languages tab.

(WARN: you can only change language in certain editions of Windows 7 (and Vista))

wow. thanks for all the info. the problem was that no matter what i did (including the steps shown in your screen shots), i could not uninstall spanish as a display language. it was still defined as the "system language" when i clicked on "Uninstall display languages". i removed the spanish registry key from UILanguages and then i was able to uninstall it. if others have the same experience, i will make this the official answer. thanks – Make it useful Keep it simple Jun 11 '10 at 20:00
