Windows 7: Cannot change Display Language

Windows 7 Professional
Cannot change Display Language


I would like to change the display language of Windows 7 to English. Currently all software installed e.g. Microsoft Office display Thai Language in the command buttons.

I tried to read my help from Google, and the tips pointed me to Control Panel/Region and Language/Keyboard and Languages/ and to Display Language. However, the display language does not show up on the tab.

1. How do I make the Display Language option to show?
2. Is there any other way to change the displayed language i.e. use registrations or command line?

Nop, not the language bar.

But all my applications now display THAI language in all commands, e.g. Chrome Tools. I would like to change the displayed language to English in all applications.

i already figured it out, thanks. it turns out that i have windows 7 professional and it wouldn't allow any LIP installed unless u have windows 7 ultimate or enterprise. anyhow, i changed all the region and language options to english (US) such as formats, local, and keyboards. however, chrome has to be changed manually through it's own settings. In addition, my microsoft office is the Thai Office, there's no way to change it to english, unless i pay. so will have to deal with it. but thanks for your replies ; )
