  • Hi,

    From the photos, language remove option is gray out in Settings.

    What’s your system version and OS build? Type “winver” in Search Bar to check.

    If the option to remove a language pack on Windows 10 is grayed out in the Settings app, you can use the following steps to use PowerShell to remove it:

    Open Start.

    Search for Windows PowerShell, right-click the top result, and select Run as administrator.

    Type the following command to list the languages currently installed on your device and press Enter:

    Get-WinUserLanguageList

    Make a note of the LanguageTag you want to remove.

    Type the following commands (one at a time) to remove the language that you don't need and press Enter:

    $LangList = Get-WinUserLanguageList

    $MarkedLang = $LangList | where LanguageTag -eq "LANGUAGETAG"

    $LangList.Remove($MarkedLang)

    Set-WinUserLanguageList $LangList -Force

    Regards,
