Le 14 septembre 2017, 08:03 dans Humeurs 0

Open Display Language Settings in Control Panel

If you live in an English-speaking country and purchased a PC at your local retailer or online, chances are you are running an English version of Windows 7.

However, if you're native language is something other than English , this guide will show you how to change the display language in Windows 7 to one of the 30+ languages supported by Microsoft's latest operating system.

I used Windows 7 Ultimate for this guide, but the instructions apply to all Windows 7 editions.

1. To get started, click the Start (Windows Logo) button to open the Start Menu.

2. When the Start Menu opens, enter "change display language" without the quotes, in the Windows search box.

3. A list of search results will appear in the Start menu, click Change display language from the list.

Setting the Region & Language in Windows 7

You also can reinstall the system to solve all the problems. If you can not find the previous activation code, you can click goodkeyhome.com to buy Windows 7 Key with the lowest price.

The Region and Language window will appear.

1. Make sure that the Keyboards and Languages tab is active.

2. Click the Install/Uninstall Languages... button.

In order for you to use languages other than the default installed in Windows, you will need to download them from Microsoft, then install the language pack for the language you wish to use.

Install Additional Language Packs from Windows Update

The Install or uninstall display languages wizard will appear prompting you to Install display languages or Uninstall display languages.

Click Install to download the language packs.

You will then be prompted to select the location of the Language packs with two options, Launch Windows Update or Browse computer or network.

Unless you have a language pack stored on your PC, click Launch Windows Update to download the latest language packs direct from Microsoft.

Use Windows Update Optional Updates to Download Language Packs

When you select the Launch Windows Update option, the Windows Update window will appear.

Note: Windows Update is used to download updates, security patches, language packs, drivers and other features direct from Microsoft.

There are two types of updates that are usually available from Windows Update, those that are important and should be downloaded right away and those that are optional, which are not critical.

The language packs fall on the latter, non-critical optional updates, so you will need to manually select the language pack you wish to use to download it from Windows Update.

Select Language Packs to Download & Install

The Select updates to install page will load with a list of available updates that are Important and Optional.

1. Make sure that the Optional tab is active.

2. Select the language you wish to use by adding a checkmark next to the language pack on the list from the Windows 7 Language Packs section.

3. Once the language packs are selected, click OK.

How to remotely connect to a Windows 7 PC

Remote access is a great tool that allows a PC's desktop, along with files, folders, programs and settings, to be accessed from another location with the help of a net connection. It's an ideal solution for those that want help from either an IT guy, family member or friend to fix their PC, or perhaps you just need to quickly review a file you've left on your office PC when you're working on-the-go.

In previous versions of Windows, if you wanted to ensure that you or someone else could remotely access your PC, you had to download software onto your PC. While some of these programs, such as TeamViewer, are free it was still a hassle

However, with this in mind, Microsoft introduced a remote access feature into Windows 7 that allows others to access your PC remotely without the need for third-party software. We've already shown you how to turn on remote access settings in Windows 7 but here's how to use another Windows 7 machine to remote access that PC.

If you want to rotate the screen in Windows, first you must be a Windows system user and have activated it. If you need you can check goodkeyhome.com to find Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 Key online with the lowest price.

Step one

From the Start menu, use the search box at the bottom of the window and type Remote desktop connection. Double click the program from the list of results.

Step two

In the Window that appears, type the name or IP address of the machine you want to connect to. Now press Connect. Providing the machine has enabled remote desktop connections, you'll be connected and then able to access the desktop, files, folder and programs on that machine.

We show you how to sign out from the Xbox Games Live app in Windows 8. How to change the account of your Xbox Games app, so that you can use your Xbox Gamertag in your Windows 8 PC or laptop.

It seems apposite that I am writing this Windows 8 tip in the week that Microsoft discontinues XP support, pushing countless new users into the clammy arms of Windows 8. In general I am a fan of Windows 8. It is fast and stable, and allows PC and laptop users to install Windows apps. But there are some real oddities, and blind alleys down which Windows 8 can send the unwary user.

One such is the fact that when you are logged in on your Windows 8 PC or laptop, you are automatically logged in as that user on the native Xbox Games app. The trouble is, if you have an existing Xbox account that isn't the same as your Windows account you won't be able to marry up the two. It should be simple to sign out of the default account, and in to your existing Xbox account. Sadly, it isn't.

If you don't know, Xbox apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT include the Video, Music, Games and SmartGlass apps. These are designed to allow you to access and interact with the Xbox ecosystem from your PC. It should mean you can share some of your Xbox experience on your Windows 8 PC or laptop.

If you want to rotate the screen in Windows, first you must be a Windows system user and have activated it. If you need you can check https://www.goodkeyhome.com/product/shop-windows-10-home-product-key-003337-29.html to find windows product key online with the lowest price.

On your computer, when you go to PC settings and sign in using the Microsoft account for your gamertag, you'll be automatically signed in to any Xbox Live app that you open on your Windows 8 or Windows RT PC. But if you have a separate Window account you may run into problems.

Don't worry, here is how to sign out of Xbox Games when using Windows 8, and sign in with your existing Xbox account.

How to sign out from Xbox Games Live in Windows 8

First open the Xbox Games app from your Windows 8 start screen. Now press Windows key+C, and then select Settings. Select Accounts and you *should* see the option to sign out.

Don't worry if this option isn't there. You are very far from alone in this and we'll explain a more detailed method below. As far as I can tell the above method usually works where people at live.com or hotmail.com email addresses associated with their Windows accounts. But there seems to be little logic to when it works and when it doesn't.

How to switch Xbox app to a different Microsoft account

To switch to a different Microsoft account than the one you're signed in with in your Xbox app - if your Xbox gamertag is associated with a different Microsoft account, sign in to your PC using a different Microsoft account.

On your PC, select the Settings charm. Select More PC settings, and then Users. Under Other users, select an account.

If needed, select Add a user and enter the email address and password for the Microsoft account you want to use.

If that doesn't work, there is one more thing to try...

Sign out from Xbox Games Live in Windows 8: one final thing to try

Sifting through many Windows forums we have found that this works for some people: uninstall the Xbox Games app, add in your existing, Gamertag Xbox user account as a Windows account as explained above. Then reinstall the Xbox Games app from the Windows Store.

Yes this is a very convoluted process. And yes you probably gave up hours ago. But there you go - it's an option that apparently works.
