A reader is having issues with the language settings in Windows 8.1. “OK let me see if i can explain my problem. When i turn the computer on, i have 8.1, in the right hand corner there is the by the clock and time there are letters ENG AND DVR, i then have to right click to get it for the ENG us is there a way to make it stay for the us?? If I forget it comes out with the letters all weird. I have tried to make it for English us but it will not stay.”
It sounds as if you have another language pack installed on your PC and you’re being offered the choice between languages. If you don’t require an additional language, go to Control Panel and select Clock Region and Language. Highlight any additional language besides English under change your language preferences and then choose Remove.
Without an additional language option, it should disappear.
