    I got a new laptop (it was a gift) my boyfriend bought it for me while he was in the Netherlands, so the laptop is in dutch! This is the first time I use Windows 8, so I'm not familiar at all with this OS. Finding the control panel is hard enough, but I managed to find the language panel, I added my language to the list, but nothing happens :( Everything is in dutch, and I don't understand a word! Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Where can I change the language to english?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you've added English as a language option you'll need to take the next step and install the actual language pack.
    Give this a careful read and let us know if you need any further assistance.
