Microsoft’s New Windows Browser Installs in the Wrong Language – Here’s the Fix
Microsoft has released a new browser for Windows and Mac, but unsurprisingly, this very first version comes with its own set of problems.
As many discovered after downloading the browser, the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge appears to install in the wrong language, regardless of the settings on the device.
More specifically, I’ve seen users reporting that the browser installed in Japanese, Italian, German, and French, despite the language on their Windows devices was configured to English.
This is clearly unexpected behavior, especially because the browser should first and foremost check the system language and use it for its very own interface as well – Microsoft Edge comes with multi-language support, so you can configure the primary language that you want to use from the settings screen.
