Since 2 weeks, my MSN landing NewTab page in Edge Dev is in the Czech language (Czech Bing and Czech news articles). Where is Edge getting its localisation from? I live in the Czech Republic, so I thought it was maybe geographical, but currently I am in France on a trip and it is still in Czech. So it must be reading it from somewhere else.

 

My Windows 10 1909 and Edge Dev (79.0.301.2) is set to English UK, as the display language. I have a few other languages set as preferred languages (including Czech) to view webpages.

 

My Windows country and region settings are set for the UK. My Microsoft Account is set with my UK address as the primary address, my MSN News Windows app is set to English, my old Edge MSN landing page is in UK English, and even the MSN.com profile is set to English with London as a home location.

 

How can I switch the MSN landing page to another language? This should be an easy option for the users, even if the default is read from somewhere else in the system settings.

Hi,
So it got the location correctly, it's just having problem refreshing the location and get the new one.
Try removing the other language from here: edge://settings/languages
and see if it fixes the NTP news languages, if not, try clearing browser data
edge://settings/privacy

That didn't work unfortunately.

 

In any case, I do not want the NTP language to be the language corresponding to my physical location, given that I frequently do not speak the local language when I travel. I would like to manually set it to e.g. English UK, like the rest of my machine.

 

The behaviour changed a few weeks ago. Before, Edge displayed everything in English, but maybe that was the only supported language, and now I am suffering from a localisation feature?

Yes that could be also possible, try removing anything related to Czech language that you don't want to see. when you travel to another country the localization packages are not automatically installed on Windows.
also try changing the language in here

Hi@wigster

 

Now added the ability to change the location for news content on the new tab page in Version 81.0.387.0
