How to change language settings in Windows XP?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

My computer is bought here in Thailand, and it was set in Thai language.

Everything is in Thai so I cannot work properly with it.

I am tired of Google translation which is sometimes out of the blue. I have just downloaded Photoscape but it was also in Thai.

I don’t know how to locate the settings to change the language since I cannot understand any single word on my computer.

But someone advised me that in order to change language in Windows XP, I need to buy a genuine copy of it.

I don’t think I have it here.

Please let me know if you have suggestions.
