Step # 2 -- Changing the Language In this window you need to select the language that you want to change the system to. In this example we are changing it from "English (US)" to "English (UK)". Select "English (UK)" from the list and click the "Set as default" button, and in the dialog box that appears, click "Yes" and then click "OK" to close the "Language" window and save the settings.
