Okay, so I just got my computer back from service, and the idiots changed my computer's language, so stuff like "my computer" is now called "my computer" (I'm danish, so I'd like it to be in danish :D) and not "Denne Computer"... Any way to change that?

Thanks a lot :p

Start - Control Panel - Regional & Language Settings - (once the window has opened) - click on the "Languages" tab, and then details. The rest is somewhat self explanatory. :)

If it didn't change without a reboot then reboot it and see, it'll be quicker than asking here...

It doesn't work... my keyboard's working as an american one now, lol... But is there even a way to change it without deleting your hdd and reinstall windows?

You obviously changed the wrong thing because it does work...

Just a thought but call the tech that did it? I mean honestly if a company's tech are doing that they should know about it (I'm not sure about the settings but the control pannel item should work)

no, it's because it's been in for service, so they deleted my hdd and changed the language

They call that a service...?

Control Panel (make sure it's in classic view) > Regional and Language Options > Languages > 'Language use in menus and dialogs' (at the bottom).

You can change the other ones at your leisure, but that's the one that changes the Windows interface.
