I have a little problem every time I type click here
The home page is displayed in Japanese and the search comes up in Japanese on my home computer
How can I make it display in English
Thank you all

To the right of the box where you enter your search details there are three links one above the other. The middle one is preferences. Select this then the drop down menu near the top of the page allows you to select language. There is a save preferences option - the grey box at the top right.

Sounds like an excellent trick for the first of next month!

Just noticed that one of the language options is KLINGON!!!

Another is HACKER (133t?)

Or there is Bork bork bork or Elmer Fudd. Someone at Google has a sense of humour.

The problem all the pages are displayed in Japanese how can I choose any of the languages if I can't read JP

Just guess and you will hopefully find one where you can at least recognise the characters, Then finding English is fairly simple. Alternatively, Elmer Fudd translates as Elmer Fudd in many languages. Change to that first then English (Engwish) is easily found.

Do not have google open - empty/delete your cookies , now try google , the preferences for it will be saved in a cookie .

There's also the co.uk version of google...

By the way the total number of pages the amazing google tool can now trawl is claimed to be almost six billion...:-)
