Issues with language settings in Windows®
What are the common issues arising while accessing language settings in Windows?
The language settings in the Windows operating systems can be changed according to the need of the users. The option for changing the languages is available in the 'Control Panel'. This option varies with almost every version of Windows operating system. In Windows 7, there are much more options for changing the languages as compared to the previous versions of Windows. However, in spite of the advancements, the changes that are made in the language settings would cause some issues with the user systems. Sometimes the changes would not come into effect even after the user has altered the options. Therefore, it is worthwhile to note that the language settings configured in the system should be according to the available languages. Otherwise, the user would experience unprecedented issues. The keyboard settings can also be changed according to language settings. Such configurations on the keyboard can sometimes cause issues by displaying wrong selections while pressing the keys.
