Changing language for menus + dialogs, Win2000 Pro

  Pier1 15:27 08 Apr 2003


I'm on a PC previously used by a German person who changed the language for all the dialogs and menus into German and I need to change it back to English. I looked in Regional Options in Control Pannel, and there doesn't seem to be an option for it on the General tab (where I understand it should be), just the 'Your locale' option.

This does sound like the previous person has installed a German O/S version on the computer. You may need to install an English O/S version.

If I am wrong with this then look down next to the clock, you should see a blue square with a white D in it. Click on this to see if you can change the language from here.

I'm pretty certain it's an english version. The german guy was just a temporary user, he didn't own the computer and this version would already have been installed before he came...

You could try re-installing Windows and selecting the English version.

No, I'm afraid reinstalling is not a viable option in this case
