How to change language

HP Recommended
Hp Elite book 8440p

I was given this older laptop which runs windows 7 I guess. (Don't know anything about this kind of stuff). Everything was working fine then one morning I woke up, went to use it and everything went from english to spanish. I don't read or speak Spanish. So I have no idea how to change it back since I can't understand any of it. And why would it just change like that to begin with? Someone please help. 😔

Given the date of your post, I would have expected someone to respond to it before this -- but since that has not happened, I will take a shot at it ...

How this happened? No one knows -- but you got this from someone else and we would have no way of knowing what they did to it before you got hold of it.


Here's info from Microsoft about changing languages:


Good Luck
