This is a very small follow up post for my article about language change How to completely change Windows 10 language with Intune. I mentioned the Company Portal and the issue that it sometimes got stuck at a language. During that time I didn’t realized something very simple :-). Actually the Windows Settings are telling the fact why this happens very precisely.
See the “Preferred languages” explanation here:
Even if everything else is configured to be shown in English, the Store Apps and websites will honor the preferred languages setting and switch to that language. So, in my case if I have German here in the first position, I get an English start menu for example, but the store app Company Portal will be displayed in German as “Unternehmensportal”.
It’s easy to see, it is fully displayed in German:
So, if we simply change the order from German as the first entry to English in the first entry, like this:
The Company Portal will switch back to English as well:
I guess this falls into the category RTFM or RTF-“Settings” :-). Anyway, I’m happy about the new knowledge. I wasn’t really aware of it at the time of writing the language post How to completely change Windows 10 language with Intune. So, if someone has the same issue, you now have a quick fix for it.
