Can't fully change language on windows 8


Well-Known Member
I previously got windows 8, I accidentally installed the German version, it took me about a hour to figure out how to change the language. Once I changed it, mostly everything's in English, but some things like the lock screen is still in German! this is getting pretty annoying. I was just trying to find out if theirs a way to fix this. PLEASE HELP!!!

It might be the case that to have everything in English you need to install an os with the correct default language?
