I have Window-10. and I would like to change the language in my PC from Hebrew to English. I tried the following: Setting -> Time and Language -> and the English language is listed in the Prefer Languages List. What should I need do now? How can I change the English language to the default language? Please let me know what's the next step that I need to do.

Thanks in advance! attached screenshot

  • You have improved the quality of the question by a fraction but it’s not clear what edition of Windows 10 you are running. Please edit your question and provide a screenshot of the installed languages that are shown within Settings

  • @Ramhound - thanks! but how can I know what edition of Windows 10 do I have? Aug 4, 2020 at 21:22
  • You will have to provided a basic translation within your screenshot. I can't provide any additional instructions based of that single screenshot that isn't in English.

To change the language for the windows operating system:

  1. Go to Settings -> Time and Language -> Language
  2. Select the desired language from the 'Windows display language (שפה)' dropdown
  3. Sign out of windows and sign back in

  • What exactly are you trying to change? Keyboard, app languages? Answer above is for the operating system.

  • yes, I want to change the operation system. Aug 10, 2020 at 20:54

I think what worked for me was to first add English as a preferred language (שפה מועדפת or something like that) and then to press the arrow buttons to make English on top and then to remove (הסר) the Hebrew option, and then I clicked on the "options" for the English and then there was a new option to update English (עדכון or something like that), and then after all this there was an option available by the system drop-down to change it to English. Although, I haven't figured out how to change everything to English. Like My Documents and things like that are still in Hebrew.
