    Windows 8.1 operating system is not English. How to chang


    I purchased an H.P. ll-in-One with Windows 8.1 installed. I specifically stated I wanted the op system to be in English. It isn't .
    The control of the computer is in Hebrew. Some, perhaps most of the applications are in English.
    I need to know if and how I might change the operating system itself to English.
    I have searched the Internet for a solution, but they all were referring to the language packs. I don't need a language pack, I need the system itself to be in English.
    Can this change be made?

    Use this tutorial to change the display language if possible:

    You could also talk to where you bought the computer that you did not get what you wanted.
