Set-WinSystemLocale

Set-WinSystemLocale

microsoft.internationalsettings.commands.dll

Synopsis

Sets the system locale (the language for non-Unicode programs) for the current computer.

Syntax

Set-WinSystemLocale [-SystemLocale] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The System-locale setting determines which code pages (ANSI, DOS, and Macintosh) the system uses by default. If you change the System-locale setting, the necessary bitmap font files are installed to support legacy applications in the selected language. Note that because this is a system setting, this can only be changed by a user with Administrator permissions, and changes do not take effect until the computer is restarted.
