How can i check which version it is ?

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

How's it going?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Dear *****,

As said in my mail, I tried what you said, but it does not work.

So not sure what to do next , but I have to find another solution.

Tks

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
There are other ways. Just give me a minute please.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Open Control Panel and let me know when you are there.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

control panel is open

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
When you go to the Clock Language group, does it list the language you want?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
After you select the language you want, you will need to select options to download the display language pack, otherwise your computer will continue to display in English.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Dan to clarify

1)The current display langage is Russian and I want to change it to english

2) when I select the language i Want, i select parameters and an supposed to get the option to download the english pack, this oprtion does not appear, hence I cannot continue

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Sorry I got that reversed. Do you see something like this attachment?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes I do, but when I click on options, I should get the possibility to download the pack (as explained on one of the videos i saw on you tube on this topic) but the download option does not come ...

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
That's strange! Was Windows original language in Russian and have you upgraded from an older version?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Give this a try please. Open control panel. Select clock, language and region. Click on language, click on advanced settings from the left panel.Select English (United States) under Override for Windows display language and Override for default input method section. Click on save.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Dear *****,

This has also not worked as under Override for windows display language it only proposes me the option Russian

tks

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
My apologies for not being able to resolve this issue for you. I will opt out and open the question for another expert.
