Windows 10 Language Packs Direct Download Links

Windows 10 is the latest Microsoft Operating System. The technical preview of Windows 10 was available in only a few selective languages while Windows 10 RTM comes with the full list of supported language packs. Windows 10 has made it quite easy to install a new language pack and a user can directly download a new language pack from Windows Update.

But for advanced users, it is always fun to download the language packs of your choice and install them even without an Internet connection. This is why we give the direct download links to the latest Windows 10 language packs.

There are two types of language packs, full language packs will transform the Windows 10 Operating System into a particular language while language interface packs will change the input language only so that you can write in different languages other than your default Operating System language.

The full language packs were provided for free by Microsoft in the earlier Operating Systems like Windows 7 language packs but now you have to buy the full language pack from Microsoft if you want to install it. The language interface packs are still provided free of charge.

  1. Go to Run –> lpksetup
  2. Click on Install Display Languages
  3. Give the language pack path (CAB file) and click Next
    lpksetup language pack installation

You can verify the installation by going to Settings –> Time & Language –> Region & Language.

Installing a language pack in Windows 10 using Windows Update

You can install multiple language packs in Windows 10 and make one language your default. The advantage of installing the language pack from Windows Update is that it will always give you a compatible version of the language pack according to the system build. Also you will get a lot more language options than from the manual download method.

To install a new language from Windows Update, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings > Time & language > Region & language.

  2. Select Add a language.

  3. Select the language you want to use from the list, then choose which region’s version you want to use. Your download will begin immediately.

  5. Hi,

    Can one these language packs be installed on a Windows 10 Home Single Language edition?

    I just bought a new Lenovo laptop in Colombia, where I live and work. I’m Dutch and wanted to change the language of the whole system into English. I thought I just bought a laptop with the Home version. The Single Language Pack thing only became obvious to me when trying to change the language.

    I thought changing the system language was a normal feature of any Windows laptop. I’ve read on several forums that with this Single Language Pack changing the system language is not possible… So now I’m stuck with a laptop with a language I partly master.

    Can anyone help me out? Thanks a bunch!

  6. If you have Windows 10 Home edition, there is NO WAY you can change the display language to anything else than the one your local edition came preinstalled with. You can only change the interface (keyboard input) language, and that’s it. You are stuck with what you got, unless you pay $99 to upgrade to the Pro edition – then you can get any display language you want.

    I bought a laptop in China just a few days ago and had to give it back because of this very reason.

  7. when i downloaded the language pack it said that it is “Language is already intalled” but in the Region & Language there’s no available windows display language

  8. I tried installing a windows 10 english language pack but cant select next as its greyed out. I am selecting the whole file, should I extract it first? If so which one do i pick?

  9. Hi, I’ve downloaded the English version for my 64bit HP running on Windows 10. The laptop is in Chinese. I tried using the dism to download the pack but I’m getting an error ” The specified package is not applicable to this image”.

  10. Hi, recently I bought a notebook in Chile and unfortunately the Dutch language is not available (message: the language is not available). I tried to install your language package because that seems like the solution. When I tried to install the pack, the message says: You can´t install this language on this equipe. I also tried english but I got the same message. What can I do?

    I really hope you can help me because I am thinking about returning my laptop.

  23. Hello we are in Peru for a period of time and recently bought a lenovo yoga 500 laptop. When we set it up for the first time we choose united states and english as our defaults but it wont ever completely chance, some things being in english and most in spanish. If you click on the english language tab it says (searching windows update). Also I just seen that the edition is Windows 10 Home Single Language… So are we out of luck to switch to english??

  24. When I click on ‘region and language,’ the screen disappears. The default language is now in Chinese, so getting around is difficult.

  25. Steve Antenucci on

    I have a ThinkPad T450s with Chinese as a default language. Obviously, I want English as my default. When I click on ‘Region and Language,’ the screen disappears. Because everything is in Chinese, I have no idea what to do next.

  26. “Connect to the internet to check for language packs.” when I try to switch to Canadian English. Been getting this error for months. Cortana is, of course, broken as a result. Frustrating.

  27. I followed all of your steps by using the run command, installing to the lpksetup in the run command. However, i received a message that said that the display language cannot be changed. Do you know how to solve this problem?
    Thank you for your time

  28. Is there another way to download English pack because I don’t see English option even after I change to US as region ?

  29. are these links valid for 10240 / 1507 or 10586 / 1511 ? Would be nice to be more precise on that point, especially when the 1607 is around the corner.
    The English link refers to a package for build 10532 and refuse to install on 10586. What does an insider build here??

  32. Gene K. Potter on

    I have just added Hebrew as a language to which I occasionally switch for greetings to persons who speak that language. It does now appear as an installed language in the Time and Language area of Settings. How can I toggle between these languages (within a document) when I wish to do so? Thank you.

  33. I can’t install the Spanish language pack on my Win 10 laptop – either using Windows Update or manually from your file. When using Windows Update to download, the download will look like it’s starting, and then suddenly stop and go missing. Then it’ll start searching for update again, and the process repeats.

    I can install German, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese, but not Spanish. This is really baffling.

  34. Hi, I’m having similar issues to people below

    I have bought a laptop here in Peru and so my default display language is Spanish but I want to change it to English. I have tried both installation methods demonstrated above but am still having issues, when I try lpksetup when I find the .cab file after browsing I get a message “the language cannot be installed” but in Spanish – any ideas?

    Thanks

  35. People who post portuguese language in brasilian way, and ignore the original portuguese language, from Portugal, must be sick in the head…

    • I disagree. I’m from the United States and our spoken English is NOT identical to the UK… the “original” English language. It’s has a name, it’s called “Dialect”… you should go look up the definition and learn something before calling others sick in the head for desiring to use their own “dialect”.

  36. hello,

    i have the same problem with the italian language pack.

    I tried to do the manual installation but the system shows this message (the language cannot be installed on this computer)

    can you suggest me some kind of workaround? I need to install this language pack on 35 computer

    thanks for the help
