    Set Computer to Worng Country

    Hi, just bought a new Win 8 laptop today and when I was setting it up I said I was in the wrong country. Now on my start screen I'm getting news and sport from that country and would like it from my own. How do I change it to my own country? Thanks

    Take look at this tutorial:

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8

    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.
