Windows 7: Windows 7 business to Windows Ultimate

Windows 7 business to Windows Ultimate

I just acquired a Dell Inspiron 3000 Desktop Intel core Windows 7 (business) I discovered that I can't write accents--a handicap since French is my maternal language. It was suggested that I could do so with Windows7 ultimate. Can you confirm that, and what would be the best way to get the proper program? Thank you!

You can change the language with Ultimate, is that what you want to do ?

From the web:

Language packs: If you check Windows Update right now using Windows 7 Ultimate, you’ll find more than 30 language packs waiting for you. These packs change the Windows 7 interface completely, allowing you to display menus, dialog boxes, and other elements in a language other than the base language your copy of Windows uses. If you use a lesser edition of Windows 7, you can always install a language input pack, which translates about 80% of the Windows interface but leaves the remaining 20% in the base language. For multilingual Windows users, this could be a big deal.

You do not need language packs to type in French. Simply install French as input language, see the tutorial here: Keyboard Input Language - Add or Remove

A French language pack available for Windows 7 Ultimate is only needed if you want your whole Windows being in French instead of English.
