I have a friend in Austria who has just had a local "guru" install Windows 10 (don't know yet which version) on her high-end Lenovo laptop, previously running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  She wanted English, he installed German.  I thought changing the system language was possible, she wants to know how.  Google suggested Settings, Language & Time, and choose another language.  Is it as simple as that?  She wants a complete change, not just a keyboard or display change.  Being myself completely fluent in both languages (not to mention a few others) I understand her desire to avoid any "hybrid" situations.  When I want to write English, I want to be able to use the full power of that language.  The same when I want to write German.  You don't want to have to fiddle with keyboard workarounds, etc.  One language or the other, right down to syntax or grammar corrections in the word processor.


Thanks for enlightenment!
