How do I change the language for certain folders?

I had bought a laptop from an Arabic country. I know how to change the default language by going to Region and Languages, I already fixed that. However, there is a certain file in C://Users that is still in Arabic! I can open this folder but I cannot rename it in English. Could someone please help me fix this? Thank you!

It would be the desktop.ini file located within, it is hidden by default.

You you can either edit the desktop.ini file, or delete it. Assuming it is the problem.
I honestly, would blow the whole installation away and start over with a fresh install.
