Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?

My hp laptop,the menu and settings is all in French and I need it to be back in English.


Answers :

Language settings should be in the Regional Settings in the windows control panel. That of course could be a little tough for you if unable to decipher French. You could perhaps use the system restore utility to roll the system back to a point before the language got changed, but you could lose any recent files you may have saved as well. And since you're probably stuck in French either way, it's probably better to "wing it" in the regional settings. If you can get "English" selected that way, shut down and reboot to make the change effective.

Hope it works out for you.
