How to change the interface of Windows 8 from German to English

Hello

I'm going to buy a new laptop with Windows 8 in Germany, but as I am an expat in Germany and do not speak the language a lot, I really need an English interface in my laptop.

Is it possible to switch to English and how do I do this?

Thank you very much!

  • How to change the language of Windows XP from German to English

    original title: German English XP Windows XP license key

    Hello.. I would like to change the language of my Windows XP from German to English.  Is this legal possible to format my system and borrow an English version of Windows XP and install and enter the license included with the German version key?

    Hi, Soorajr,

    Never borrow from another CD.  It is called facelift soft and illegal.

    The goal of Product Activation is to reduce a form of piracy known as "casual copying" or "softlifting." Casual copying is the sharing of software between people in a way that violates the end user of the software (EULA) license agreement. An example of casual copying is if someone were to get a copy of Microsoft Office XP and load it on his PC, then share it with another person who charged on her PC, then share it with a third person who charged on his PC and so on. This form of piracy is widespread and has been estimated by some industry trade groups to explain a staggering 50 percent of the economic losses due to piracy. Worldwide, the piracy rate is estimated at 37 percent; in other words, one in every three software products on the market is hacked.

    If you have the version of Windows 7 Ultimate, you have the Multilanguage functionality, you can use.  But it was only with the Ultimate version.  Otherwise, you will need to download the desired version and then reinstall Windows.  You can download the ISO files from

  • How to change the fonts on windows 8.

    I wonder how to change the fonts by default to Gabriola police? is there a software that I need to buy? Please let me know if you know how.thanks... big nose...

    Hi Edgardargueta,

    The function to change the font is not available in window 8. This feature is by design. The only way is to increase or decrease the text size and can also be turned into fat.

    See the following link for more information: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/make-text-screen-larger-smaller/?v=t

  • How to change the settings of Windows 8 trackpad

    I have an Asus S400C with Windows 8 is installed and pain with my trackpad.

    I'm used to be able to scroll with two fingers on the trackpad, but this function seems to have completely abandoned.

    When I got my phone a few months ago, that this would work sporadically, but now nothing. I tried to hunt around in settings, etc. to see if it needs to be enabled/disabled, however I can not even find the trackpad settings! I searched touchpad/trackpad etc. and looked through the settings of the mouse, but none seem to control the current laptop keyboard. Instead, it maintains direct me to the tactile features on the current screen.

    I'm so use to scroll with one finger on my screen while using the mouse trackpad for other features...

    I tried to have some Google around for this online but everyone seems to have slightly different questions and no not to Asus - some answers have to give on the brand of computer - but wouldn't it be bound to the windows software and where touchpad info are stored?

    If anyone knows how to change the functions of the trackpad, or at least where to find who would be most appreciated!

    Thank you

    Hello

    There are several different manufacturers of the Trackpads. The computer manufacturer decides what trackpad to install based on compatibility with other hardware and software on the system.

    The computer manufacturer will include a utility for the trackpad, which is designed for this particular model options. It is usually a utility that adds a Trackpad tab in the Control Panel/mouse component, or it may be a separate control panel item.

    You must contact the Asus support for a solution.

    I am trying to print something in black & white. I went to the print page to change the color. Language changed from English to French (or Italian?). I've never changed the language & worry how it changed. How can I change it back to English?

    Hello

    Please try to change the language of the document, and then try to print the document in the appropriate language.  If the document has been changed to the language proper, but it is still printing in English, please inform me accordingly.  If you are unable to change the language, please check the version of Windows Vista that you are running.  Also, if you would please check the type of document (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Adobe PDF).  In Word, there should be an option of translation to translate the language to the language of your choice.  If you please you would follow with me at your convenience, I would be very apprecite it.

    If that's the word, simply highlight the police and the content of the document and right click.  There should be an option called translate.  Click on this option.  Select the appropriate language and insert text.  It will then replace the previous text with text of your choice.

  • How to change the language of windows 8 pro homescreen?

    in fact my friend bought a new notebook in which he has installed windows 8 pro assistance from the manufacturer of the laptop service center but its home screen is in hindi (Indian language), he wants change in English but it is not possible, he also tried to sign--> language and the clock settings, but not use. Please help!

    Hi,.

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to your friend and I will definitely help you.

    According to the description of the problem, it seems that you have problems with changing the language of the home screen.

    1. press WIN + R to launch the dialog box RUN. Type regedit and press ENTER. It will open the registry editor.

    2 now go to the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData

    3 under "SystemProtectedUserData" key, you will see a key with the name similar to S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x. Under this key, go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

    4 key 'LocaleInfo' is that we need to change the format of date and time screen locking. This key contains all the required information has been stored in the INI file in Windows 8 test versions.

    5 click the 'LocaleInfo' key and in the right pane, you will see strings such as:

    • Calendar
    • Clock
    • GeographicRegion
    • Language
    • Nomlocale
    • NativeDigits
    • SubstitutionMode
    • TimeFormat

    6 we will play with only the following strings:

    • Language
    • Nomlocale
    • TimeFormat

    You may need to take ownership of the registry key before you edit it. Please consult this guide to learn how to take ownership of a registry key.

    7 first talk time format. If your Windows 8 lock screen shows the time in 24-hour format, the string "TimeFormat" in your base of registry Windows 8 could be defined to hh: mm tt. Change it to hh: mm tt and it'll start showing the time in 12-hour format.

    Same principle applies to the 12-hour format. If your Windows 8 lock screen shows the time in 12-hour format, the string "TimeFormat" could be defined to hh: mm tt in your system. Change it to hh: mm tt and it'll start showing the time in 24-hour format.

    8 now turn of display language. If you want to display the name of the day and the date in another language on the lock screen, you can change the values of the nomlocale and channels of language to your language code of your choice.

    For example, if you want to display information in the Hindi language, change the nomlocale string values and the language on the screen - IN and lock will begin showing the name of the day and date in Hindi language.

    You can use any language code such as en-US for English, en - us for German, en - US for the French, ru - RU, Russia, etc.

    Here are a few screenshots of Windows 8 lock screen showing the name of the day and date in various languages:

    You are limited to what you can find in the system as well as preferences to change the appearance of things.  I'm sure there are some 3rd party hacks that allow you to do what you are looking for, but I don't know what they are, and I defend people never hack the OS anyway, as it's always entirely and completely unpredictable.
