Alright so I bought a new laptop in Mexico and it came with preinstalled spanish Windows 8 single language.

As I am not so good at spanish I would love to change the Windows to English. I have googled but only found halfyear old threads, and I am not sure if those works or not, as of Windows 8,1 release etc.

I am looking for any working solution to this problem.

Thanks by advance!

I can show you how I did it from Japanese to English. It will be the same. I took screenshots and you can see what I clicked on. Check this thread, and scroll down half way to where the screenshots are. I hope it helps!

Hey that is for normal Windows, I got Windows single language, which makes the tutorial you linked not working. I never get the option to download a Language pack!

The video shown when you follow the links above in jim's post apply regardless. No version of Windows 8/8.1 exists where you cannot do this.

I bought a machine in Mexico too, and it says

"No disponible en esta edicion de Windows."

I also bought a laptop in Mexico and it does NOT let you change language! What you have to do is unistall the windows that is in the device now and reinstall windows (English version) onto the device and that's how it will work!
