Issue since moving from IE9 to IE11 in the office

I've changed the Language Preference on IE11 to add both of them, English by default
Microsoft Office is already set to use both language

Although using Internet Explorer, we are having an issue where it only seem to spell check one language, giving errors when typing words in the other language.

Read on the internet some people that added both language in the keyboard layout, but that's not an interesting solution because first the French keyboard layout does all the English keys and second people tend to accidentaly switch language while typing
using shortcut or whatever

Any help regarding this issue would be appreciated

A friend of mine who spends 8mths a year in france and 4 months in portugal, has just purchased a ACER laptop with XP and all sorts of bundled software in France at a great price, however, he cant seem to change the language option to english, someone else out there who recommended the Shop and Deal has just told him that microsoft have hard coded XP to only work in French on these machines.

Is that true, is there a way around this problem - he is learning french slowly while out there, but would find it more natural in English.

hi to all, once again I am in need of help. I've just bought a pc from a french bankrupt auction its a Dell dimension dim2400. My problem is that the OS is in french and as my french isgood but not that good, I want to change it to english. So I have been on line at ebay and got myself windows xp in English, but what I want to know is - do I have to format drive c to reinstall the new version? And if I do do I need to make a reboot disk?.And lastly if the answer is yes to the last two questions how do I do it??!!


A:installing english xp on a french xp pc

Hi soapy

You will need to reformat unless there is a large enough unpartitioned space on HD and you want to keep the french version. Since the default on install is the whole drive, I doubt this would be the case. A clean install is the best option and is not very difficult. Remember that doing this will wipe the HD clean so if there is anything important on the drive you will need to save it, and make sure it would work with english version. Just follow the steps Here under Perform a clean install of Windows XP.

We are having a strange intermittent problem here. We have XP Pro, and Office 2003, with templates created for our people to use with Word. These are basic templates for faxing, letters, etc. but with our very plain text logo on them. Everyone uses them, but for a couple of them, their spell-checker comes up in French. This only happens on the company templates and not to everyone. I've checked all the language settings and made sure they were set to English, but it still happens. I open the same template on my computer and all is fine. So it seems to be machine specific problem. Has anyone else ever heard of this?

Hi everybody!

My concern here is that I would want to switch my "French" Windows XP into an "English" one. Indeed, I am going to give my laptop to a Nepalese friend, and he cannot read French.

Thank you for your assistance!

A:Switch Windows XP language from French to English


The problem is that there is no ?switch? to change the language. You can change the keyboard layout but not the language of Windwos itself. In such cases you have to make a new and clean installation of Windows using installation disk.

I don?t know what notebook you have exactly but all drivers and tools for your Toshiba notebook you can find on Toshiba homepage.

By the way: If you install XP, I would recommend Service Pack 3. It contains important security updates.

Travels with file from computer to computer

Dictionary avail is only the system one.
The language options is only ENGLISH.
French is not even available for me to select.
I have a 4mb file with multiple headings, multiple topics, Thousands of hyperlinks.

I type status and info into each "topic" section, cut and paste from other files, and emails.

Hyperlind to file names.

I think it is related to a hyperlinked document name that starts with h3nnnn_-_all.pdf.

But, it will be checking spelling, and all of a sudden it will want to change normal english words to their French equivalent.

It complains there are too many spelling errors for it to check. I then created "my own library" to put all the technical terms in to reduce the number of errors. I put most of the english word errors that it wanted to convert to French into it, and that reduced the number of complaints, but it is amusing / annoying.

I cannot figure out how to find where the dictionary change is invoked within my file. Any ideas?

This might be related to my problem with the "too many edits problem" if that one is a heap problem. Don't know how to change the heap size of word 2000.

A:Word 2000 - Spell check switch between english and french on it's own

Hi Redsox2004,

Word documents, and different parts of a document, may be set in a different language (Tools / Set Language) than your default .

If you have copied from other documents then the copied text may be in another language.

You can set the text to not check spelling if it is causing you a problem, e.g. if you do not have the dictionary loaded for the language required. (same Tools / Set Language option).

You can see the language any text has been set in by looking in the status bar at the bottom of your screen.

Hello all,

I have a vaio laptop with a dual boot win7/vista setup. I simply want to format the whole drive back to one large c:\drive, then reinstall windows 7. I have heard horror stories of people saying their boot manager becomes corrupted. or goes missing. I enclose a snapshot of my hard drive config. I would appreciate any advice on this matter.


A:A fresh win7 install over a win7/vista dual boot system ?

is it the only HDD in the laptop (i used to think 1 was the max but i've been encountering people with two recently)? If so, (and if you want to wipe the hard drive completely (don't forget to deactivate any programs, such as iTunes)) just put the install disc in, boot into it (without booting into windows), choose the install option that isn't 'upgrade' (i think it's 'custom' offhand). when it takes you to the partition manager, click 'advanced' on the bottom bit and delete and format all partitions until you have just one big empty disk.
If that doesn't work or if you think it might not, just boot into a Puppy Linux live cd, open up gparted and select the 'new partition table' tool.

I hope someone can help me here. The facts are, I have Windows XP<-changed from Vista, a legit Ultimate key, no DVD drive and no USB stick or HDD. I read in some articles that it is possible, to download the Windows 7 ISO and mount it like for example with Virtualdrive or CloneDVD, then just run the setup, and it will work fine with complete installation after reboot.

My question now is, because I read in a step by step guide, that I would need to install it to an CLEAN partition, I also got this out from an Youtube video. Is this really true? So I cannot just install a new installation to C or the current vista partition)? Doesn't the setup just copies all files into an TMP folder, and would rename the old windows to C:\windows.OLD?

A:Need to install Win7 over Vista - Help!

Hello Rfresh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You cannot just copy the ISO to the DVD. Instead, you will need to use a program like ImgBurn to burn (extract) the ISO to the DVD. It should then boot from the DVD.

You would select this first:
Next, select the ISO file as the Source, then click on the icon at the bottom. It will then start burning the ISO to the DVD.
Hope this helps,

My cousin asked me to help her with a computer problem. She has been given a note book, with french xp home os. She wants it in english.
I know that you cannot upgrade to an english version and you cannot download a MUI file because its xp home and not professional.

She has an external dvd rom drive attached by usb. I have xp professional english version and was hoping to install it for her.

I booted the notebook from the cd rom and every thing was going well, all the os files where loading, but when it came to agreeing to the license, I had to press F8 to agree, but when I pressed F8 nothing happens, but when you press ESC to disagree and reboot, that works fine. I tried three time thinking it was the usb connection, but the F8 button would not function. I pressed every button incase the french keyboard layout is different.

It is a DELL notebook is there anychance that Dell have put a block to stop someone installing another OS.

Ok, i'm dazzled by the many websites with each a different opinion, upgrade paths, and so. It took me hours of reading and clicking. I'm nearly fed up. So finally made it to this forum. With my question:

Is it possible to legally upgrade from XP professional X64 English (OEM) to Windows 7 Ultimate X64 Dutch? Retail or OEM needed?
BTW: Win7 Professional X64 Dutch would be a good alternative.

It's unclear to me if it' s allowed to switch from an English OS to a dutch OS. Some say any new OS MUST be the same language as the old one. But is this also appliable for the Ultimate version, since it can switch to other languages after install?
I will be doing a clean install.
Further on i am struggling with the ' professional' to ' ultimate' switch. In some cases that path would not be allowed, others say it is allowed.
Thank you in advance for an answer to my questions.

Very confusing MS-marketing!
What we'd need is a wizard containing all the different choices and possiblilities. Simply choose the old OS from a drop down menu and the new OS, and it would tell you YES thats possible or NO, impossible. And under what conditions. Would draw a lot of site visitors.
Just my 2 cents.

A:upgrade XP prof X64 English to Win7 Ultimate X64 Dutch

Hello Snowy, welcome to the Seven Forums.

An in-place upgrade is language dependable, the language of old OS and new OS have to match. You can not do an in-place upgrade, keeping your installed software, from XP to Seven. Seven is in-place upgradeable only from Vista.

So the answer to your question is YES, you can upgrade from English XP Pro to any version of Dutch Win7. You have only one option, to do a clean, custom install and this can be made with Upgrade version of Seven in any other language. Using an upgrade version to do a custom install in other language than the old Windows is always possible.

A bit confusing, I hope you can understand.
