How To Change Default Language On Windows 10

Today we are going to teach you how to change the language of Windows 10. Once you do this, the operating system will automatically translate to the languages that you have selected, and all the applications that support it and are translated will also change automatically to start using it.

Historically, changing languages in Windows has always been quite complicated, having to install independent packages and so on. But in Windows 10 the process has been simplified substantially, so you’ll only have to enter the options menu and make a couple of clicks to change everything.

The first thing you have to do is enter the Windows 10 Settings menu. To do this open the start menu, and in the column on the left click on the button of the gear. You can also find the same button if you open the notification panel.
