Changing language was a difficult task in older versions of Windows. Now in the newer versions, Windows make it easier for us to have a multi-languages environment. It even allow us to set language for differents account so it can be really useful for people using a shared computer in differents languages. Here is the steps to follow in order to change your display language in Windows 10.

Add a new language in Windows 10

You need first to add your new desired language. To do so, open the control panel. You can open it quickly by typing “control panel” in the bottom search field.

To do so, it is really easy. You can achieve this either in two ways :

1- You can move the new language to the top of the list using the “Move up” button.

2- You can click on the “Advanced settings” button at the top left, and then modify the default “Use language list” choice with your newly installed language.
