    My Surface Pro is bought in Sweden. I was told that if I download the reinstall/recovery file (can't remember the name but followed the online instructions) I could reinstall everything in English. Unfortunately when I went through the steps at the beginning (after restarting with the files on USB drive) there were only 4 Scandinavian languages to choose from. How do I reinstall in English, or simply just change the language? Also couldn't change it from the control panel.

    Thanks

    I can just open the region and language settings in control panel, and click add language and it gives me a list of a bazillion languages to change to.

    You can also use the WIMBoot image that has English language (download link below). But the method explained by hughlle above is definitely easier.

    I have tried this several times and restarted it, or logged in and logged out and it still loads up in Swedish. For example the 'Control Panel' is 'Kontrollpanelen'.

    But you also has to set it as control language or something to that effect.

    Did you make sure to click on options once you've added the new language and make sure it then downloads the language pack?

    Yeah I just did it! Not easy trying to figure out the Swedish. The problem was that the internet kept dropping out without me realising and there was no option that I could find to download. It's all in English now!

    Congratulations, or as (I think) they would say in Swedish; Grattis på dig din gamle skurk!
