    Mixed Language display in Windows 8.1 pro preview


    Hello !
    I installed windows 8.1 pro preview successfully in English, and since I use French very often, I installed and changed the display language into French. I also checked two options concerning the welcome screen and account users to display them all in French and worked perfectly.

    I noticed the watermark before changing the display language into French, then followed this method to remove it : How to Remove Windows 8.1 Preview Watermark | MyTechBlog
    the method worked fine, but when I changed into French the watermark turned out again, then repeated the same method until I removed it.

    when I finished I noticed that "My Computer" which appears as "This PC" + "Control Panel" + when I open Control Panel everything appear in English. but my display language now is French except the aforesaid.

    Would you help solve this problem?

    Never replace system files with hacked ones - that only leads to trouble - an easier way is to have a dark wallpaper and change background colour to hide it...
