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

Thanks

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.
 

A:french XP to english

go into the control panel and click on regional and language settings. on the first page you have standards and formats, click customize and pick what you want, then click advanced and make that the same as you picked in the first window. That should do it. If not let us know and we can try something else.

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??!!

Thanks.

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.

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

Hey,

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.

Hi,

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?

Thank-you, I've learned a lot from reading here. It's a fabulous resource!!!

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.

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.

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 everyone,

Recently I bought a new computer to my wife, and it has French Windows 7 x64 bit preinstalled on it. As she speaks French/Russian I added a Russian layout in Windows (please note that originally Windows 7 came as French edition).

Now, when she visits Le Monde.fr : Actualit?s ? la Une web site the special characters are not properly shown in IE8. For example, in words, the letter ? becomes й etc.

If she runs Google Chrome browser, everything is working just fine. However, she dislikes Chrome, so I am forced to solve the problem with IE8.

If I choose in IE8 a Western Europe locale I can see proper characters in words, but! I don't want to choose locale each time there is a bug with IE8!

How can I solve the issue?

Please help. Merci.

A:Windows 7 French edition: IE8 can't "see" french pages

You just need to set your language options in IE in your preferred order... and if you are going to use cyrillics at all you must have the far eastern language fonts too (as odd as that sounds... d'accord/harosho?)...

Control Panel > Internet Options > Language Button (it's in the first tab...) and set French, Russian, English in their ORDER of personal importance...

im currently working on my brothers computer. its an older windows xp with an athlon 1.3 single core, 386mb 133 ddr ram, and a ak74-ec motherboard. i was trying to reformat and reinstall windows when i happened to press the wrong button on startup and it brought me to the setup menu. so i changed the 1st boot sequence to cd drive. i disabled the floppy boot cus i got rid of it. and i changed the memory clocks to 133 instead of 100 cus i thought it would improve its performance. so i save and quit and the com shuts off. when i went to boot it back up it beeped 3 times then shuts off before it even gets to the first info screen. i kept trying it and it actually stayed on once but the beep is now a continuous note. not to mention the monitor wouldnt recognize the computer. i tried unplugging it and turning it off and back on but nothing works. i would like to know how to get to the setup screen again and revert the settings back to how they were. is there a way to get around that or a way to fix it? please and thank you.
 

A:Com shuts off prior to power up, after I changed setup settings :/

You can clear the BIOS settings to default values by removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes. Make sure the PC is off and unplugged. It won't necessarily go back to the settings you had before unless they were default. You will have to manually do that.

Hi, I'm new here. Yesterday I got a virus on my computer that was detected by the trend PC anti virus program and it said it modified start up files, so I told the virus program to undo the changes, it seemed like all was well, so I turned off my computer and went to school. When i got home I tried to turn on my computer only to see a black screen and hear no beep, and im pretty sure its the virus, but since theres not even any writing or a mouse on the screen I cant enter my bios or recover, I was wondering what components I need to replace to fix this or a way to get to that recovery menu so i can recover back before i downloaded the virus and solve the problem instantly, but I cant get to it since nothing happens when I turn my PC on, anyone got any ideas? Oh and im pretty sure its a boot sector virus.

Computer model: Compaq Presario SR5180AN Desktop Computer
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 4800+
RAM: 2048MB DDR2
Hard-drive: 320GB 3G
GFX: Nvidea Geforce 8500GT 3D

I realise it may not have been the virus which is why I posted in this section of the forum as I have seen similar problems but without mention of a virus.

Hello everyone, my first post here, i hope you can help.

My girlfriend has a new-ish laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium, and recently it had some issues. The issues have got worse and it turned out to be a stuffed drive, out of warranty, its basically stuffed.

I got a new HD and installed it, but when i went digging for the Windows disc that came with it i couldn't find it. Some googling tells me that this laptop does not come with any install discs (seriously, wtf?!) only some manuals and other paper work. There was however a recovery drive which i assume was a partition for re-installing windows and the rest of the included bloat ware.

Without a Windows 7 disc we could not install it on the new drive, so i downloaded an ISO on my machine and created a DVD, but the idiot i am, i downloaded it in the wrong language. I didn't notice the NL at the end of the file, which im assuming is Netherlands? Please excuse my language ignorance if im wrong.

I know downloading software is wrong, i dont need a lecture. I'm just not going to pay for another copy of Windows 7 because the scumbag laptop manufacturer wont even include a bloody install disc!

I have the product key of course, luckily the sticker on the bottom of the laptop was still visible.

Sure i could download another ISO, but being bad once is enough for me and our net is pretty slow, it took 4 days to DL this copy!

Hope someone can help!

A:Windows Installation Not in English, Can I Force It To Run In English?

I would download or borrow an English language Windows Seven DVD. Install it with no product key. You have 30 days to evaluate. Also you can extend that period several times. It's not illegal. See this tutorial:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-120-days.html

By that time you should be able to determine you have everything working and can then find out what you need to do for activation to keep it permanently.
