Hi everyone,

 

We started working with Autopilot. When we used SCCM to deploy a computer the OS was EN-US.  Now we want to know if there is a way to change an already installed OS language to EN-US. For example, a person bought an HP laptop in France, the OS that HP installed on the computer would probably be customized to French beforehand. meaning the users folder name would be in French. My question is if there is any way to change everything to EN-US even though it was installed as French. I don't talk about changing the international settings of the computer. I am talking about changing everything to default EN-US.

Hi,

In the Autopilot profile you creating, there is a section for Language (region)

This is usually "OS Default", but you can change it to EN-US.

As long as the device is assigned to that Autopilot profile, it will change the language during the process.

 

Optional - You can set the "Automatically configure keyboard" to NO so the user will have to  select it during the process.

 

Hope this helps.

 

**If you think my answer is valid, please Accept it as the solution. Thank you**

@shehanjp Great Idea but didn't work.

The primary language was the OS language.

It only changed the region of the OS...
