German and English displayed in Win 11 at the same time???

#1 Post by MikalE » Sat Sep 24, 2022 10:57 am

I currently have the German language pack installed along with the default English pack that comes with NA versions of Windows 11.

My keyboard is a QWERTY model, but it is a German keyboard setup (so I have to remember which keys do what until my German keyboard arrives).

Windows is set up to use English. I never changed the language pack to German.

This morning while checking for security updates, the security screen appeared in German while the preceding menu displayed in English. If you will click on the imgur photo link you will see what I'm talking about. The photo is too large to post, but if I make it any smaller you won't be able to read the menu displays.

Could this have anything to do with my VPN being routed through Nürmburg?

If you have seen this before, please respond.

My setup is UK-English, but even when accessing Switzerland or Austria via VPN, everything stays original, no international language cock-ups.
But then again, I use only W7, no Micro$haft interference here!

In the regional and language settings, whichever language is at the top of the list is the one (at least partially) displayed in some menu selections.

What I don't understand is why the languages are mixed in certain selections, particularly the Security menu. I would think it would be all or nothing of one or the other.

Problem solved.
