    Metro apps are in German?

    Hello guys,

    I installed windows 8 last night, and I was booting it up this morning to try out the mail app, and all of a sudden it was in German, and when I tried to start up my messaging app again, it was in German too! The entire OS is set to English and I have no idea how to change it back to English.

    Thanks for the help,

    where did you get the iso image from?? if you didn't get it from the official site, that might be a problem.

    Well, I just downloaded it from the official MS site, although it was the one of my own country (Holland, The Netherlands, whatever.) And when the software checked if my system was capable of running the OS, it was set to German by default, maybe if I download it from the American MS site it would work?
