  • Hi Duane,

    First of all, Your system must be Ultimate or Enterprise edition to change language from French to English, otherwise you need to buy an English version of Windows 7 and re-install the OS.

    Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise
