Media Player 12 How to change the language

Hello everybody!

I bought my PC in Tokyo and (of course) the Windows 7 Home Premium language is Japanese.

I am thinking if it is possible change only Widows Media Player Language to English?

I know it is not possible change Windows global language to English.

Thank you for the attention.

NO,but it is possible to change your whole operating system's language i guess. Check if you have installed English language pack or if not, you might get it on Windows update (extras)

As I understood searching for a language pack only Windows 7 Ultimate can use all languages.
Thanks.
