As far as I know, it isn't possible. If you are using a Chinese version of Windows, it will be Chinese unless you get an English version.

Not sure what OS you are running, but in Windows XP you can go to Control Panel and select Regional and Language Options. In the Advanced tab, select the language which non-Unicode programs should display in. Note that unicode enabled programs will each have to be changed in their own settings individually, this setting is only a default that is overwritten by such programs.




There are no stupid questions, only those too stupid to ask for help.
