    Changing interface language does not affect some apps


    Hi,

    I've changed interface language of Windows 8 to English but parts of the system (including default Metro Apps, like Mail) are still in the language Windows was originally installed with. How can I get rid of this annoyance? I would like to have everything in English.

    Thanks

    Hi archetwist,

    Make sure English is on the top of the language list. It'll change the modern app UI to English.

    You're welcome. I was sure it would ;) Here's another one. Open any modern app, switch to the control panel, change the language order, switch back to the app :)
