Hey guys.


So I live in Ireland and when installing Windows 8, I set some language choices to Irish (keyboard and date/time), but language to English UK. In previous installations of Windows, such as Windows 7, this did not make apps show up with Irish language titles.


After removing Ireland from the Language options > Control Panel - Language, some apps went back to displaying in English. But other Modern UI apps, like the news still show up in Irish titles.


Have I missed a setting of some sort? I have attached a screenshot of my language options, just in-case i'm missing something.

PS: I have already rebooted a few times since changing these options.




EDIT: Fixed. The latest batch of Windows updates seems to have kicked it back into English. Thanks anyway!
