How to download and install Windows 8 Language Packs

Many users like using computers in their native language and Windows allows you to install several language packs. So, if you are planning to change the window menus into your native language, check whether your Windows 8 provide that language pack or not. It is important to remember in Windows 8, the language pack cannot be downloaded from online servers, as most users would expect but from the control panel of the operating System. The procedure to install language packs in Windows 7 was different. Windows 8 offers a more convenient way.

Install Windows 8 Language Packs

To install Language Packs in Windows 8, open Control Panel. To launch ‘Control Panel’ in Windows 8, you will have to access Charms bar from the lower right-corner of the screen and in the search bar, type Control Panel. Click on the results to open the Control Panel.

Alternatively, one can move the cursor to the lower right corner of the screen and then right-click to make visible a small menu called WinX menu. The menu gives you quick access to Control Panel.
