    Set Computer to Worng Country


    Hi, just bought a new Win 8 laptop today and when I was setting it up I said I was in the wrong country. Now on my start screen I'm getting news and sport from that country and would like it from my own. How do I change it to my own country? Thanks

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8




    Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?



    You can order OEM Recovery disks from your OEM manufacturer's website.
