    {PROBLEM} How to change Start {Menu} language ?

    Hello EightForums members.

    Now, I finished installing that Windows 8 Release Preview and I logged with Microsoft account.
    But when I finished install my Start is in Serbian language. I want to change to English language.

    I think that is because , that Live account is and in setup I selected : Serbia, Serbia (Latin) and other.

    And question : How to change Start to English (I want it) ?

    Please answer soon, and thanks in advance.

    Hello Trinity,

    If you did not change your display language by misktake in Windows 8, then you might see if turning off only the Language preferences Sync setting may help.

    Sync Your Settings - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
