Change the language for Windows 10

Follow

Windows 10 chooses your language based on your computer's region. Because your language is based on the location of your Shadow, your language preferences may need to be tweaked.

To change the language for Windows 10, refer to Microsoft's article Add and switch input and display language preferences in Windows 10. If your operating system is set to French, we've outlined the steps below for you below to make life even easier. 

 

  1. Click the Start menu icon, then type "Settings".


  2. Click Paramètres.

    2. Start Menu > Redémarrer

Once your computer has restarted, Windows' uses your default language instead of the language previously selected. If your Shadow was purchased from our France team's website, your other applications may also default to French. For help with other applications, refer to tutorials, guides, and help articles from those manufacturers.
