    Region and language on setup


    So I am on the select color scheme for my windows 8.1 page for my initial setup. However, its in Norwegian. Anyone know of a back button I can press to bring me back to the language and region selection? So I can select English.

    Hello Polishman, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you can close the Windows Setup window to start over.
