    Take a screenshot of the language settings window as shown below and post it here.

    Click image for larger version

    To open language settings, go to Control Panel and click Add a language under Clock, Language and Region (Control Panel Category view), or Language (Control Panel Icon view).

    ty for ur reply Kari

    about the language there was English the first one and Spanish the second one and this is in order so English on the top and then Spanish

    and I went to the place you said in the control panel and removed the Spanish and restarted the laptop and then again re added the Spanish and the names of the apps worked and became English

    but there is 2 options when I click right click on the desktop they still showing in Spanish but the rest of the options are English
