Hello,



I would like to know how can I convert the Spanish version of my windows xp home edition 32 bits into English. I need to work with an operating system in English, but the one in my laptop is in Spanish!

Thanks,

Juan

Hi Juan,

Here is how:

1. click on start - it must be at the bottom left corner of the screen

2. click on the writing next to the image of a paper with a tick on it and a pen (control panel)

3. click on the icon that shows the earth and a calendar (date, time, language and regional options)

4. click on the writing next to the image of a globe (it should open up a new window)

5. change all the language options to the language of your choice or sometimes you have to put the country that speaks that language

6. change tabs and do the same

7. click on the first box at the very bottom of that window (ok)

8. close all the windows by pressing the "x" on the top right corner of the window

9. click on start

10. click on the red "switch" icon (it should ask you what to do)

11. click on the green icon (restart - should turn off and turn back on)

12. check if it's the language of your choice
