Starting from Windows 10 version 1803 or later, users can make adjustment in the Settings app to set multiple display languages on their desktop PC, laptop, Surface Pro and tablets. This new feature will come handy especially for those who understand more than one language. So now you can use multiple language on Windows 10 by making a few simple changes in the default Settings app. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to add a new language, set a new language as your default, and manage language settings on your Windows 10 device.
Microsoft has made it easy to use multiple language and use them side-by-side. This new tweak about the way Windows 10 language settings work would be really helpful for non-English speaking users, who prefer their native language to understand things better.
This allows you to change your default language to anything your think will be suitable for a certain app, website, and Windows feature like File Explorer, Settings, and others.
