I'm currently running Windows 10 (Home edition) on a Lenovo laptop. I recently had to restore it (due to a security issue) from the recovery drive but now everything is in another language. I'm not sure what I did. Can anyone help?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you’re using a Microsoft Account, this preference will sync across devices. If you only want to change settings on one particular computer, you should go to Settings > Accounts > Sync your settings and turn off the Language preferences option.

Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app.

Click Time & language.

Click Region & language.

Under Languages, click Add a language.

Click the language you want to add, and select the specific variation if applicable.

Select the new language and click Options (and download any the language packs as necessary).

On Region & language, select the new language, and click Set as default.

If applicable, under Country or region, select your location to enable the Windows 10 to give you local content.

Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Control Panel.

Click Add a language.

Click the Advanced settings link in the left pane.

Click the “Apply language settings to the Welcome screen, system accounts, and new user accounts.”

On the Administrative tab, under the “Welcome screen and new user accounts”, click the Copy settings button.

Check the Welcome screen and system accounts and the New user accounts options.

Click OK.

Click OK again.

Reboot your computer and upon restart, you should see the new default language globally set through the operating system.
