I've just bought a LENOVO Edge 72 with 'Windows 7 Proffessional' pre installed. I bought it from Amazon.fr for my house in France - what I didn't know was the OS was in French. I thought all Operating Systems came with a choice of language but apparently not. I need an English version - any ideas

Control Panel. Language. Add a language and choose English.

Now as I have never tried it I have no idea as to what it does.

Oops that was for W/8 not sure if W/7 would be the same.

The only other thing I can think of would be to uninstall it and put an English version in its place but you would need the Windows Kecode usually underneath the laptop for that.

I Don't suppose Amazon would change it for you.
