hey there, I just updated to windows 11, and I am facing an issue with widgets. I am not able to change the lang of it, I tried most of the ways to change it but still had no success.

Hello @Nikhil_Gupta,

 

Click on Widgets > Your profile icon > Manage your news and interests > Experience settings > Language and content > select your language.

 

Let me know if this helps!

Thanks for the reply,
But I did try that already it just changes the lang of https://www.msn.com/en-us/feed/personalize not the widgets at the taskbar.
In that case, I suggest you to drop a feedback for this. Hopefully, we can see a dedicated option in upcoming builds, if the feedback worked.
I am experiencing the same issue. Their language/localization settings do not seem to be connected.

Solution
Just found a solution: Change windows display language and logoff then login, you'll find Widgets in desired language. Note: I had Widgets in Arabic, tried to change language in website to United States (English) but the language only changed for website (which is opened in Edge) then had this thought: Wait, how would changing website language changes an app language. So i changed Region to United States and Tada: Widgets became in English.
**bleep**, that actually worked, but also they should give an option to change the lang to our desire even tho we live in some other country.. hope so before the final release of Windows 11 they make these changes.
