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.
