Syntax

Set-WinSystemLocale

Description

The Set-WinSystemLocale cmdlet sets the system locale for the current computer. The System-locale setting determines which code pages, which include ANSI, DOS, and Macintosh, the computer 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.

This is a system setting. It can only be changed by a user who has Administrator permissions. Changes take effect after the computer is restarted.
