    French Keyboard, , metric and date with English speak W8


    Living in France you cannot avoid a French keyboard, they're everywhere. So I learned using the azerty, but stuck to English.

    This is of course beyond the people designing Windows.

    So how can I have Windows 8 speaking English, but using French options for the rest (, keyboard, date format, metric)?

    And of course, ALSO WITH METRO please. It seems independent of the "real" OS.

    Thanks in advance

    A lot of these changes can be made through the Control Panel > Clock, Language and Region
    If it affects Metro, I do not know.
