    Does not work for Windows 10 Home Single Language.
    Perhaps, you need to tell the Window’s Image must be in English.
    Below are the steps you can safely and easily perform:
    1- Go to
    2- Download the language you need
    3- Run CMD as admin and execute the below commands:
    A- dism /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:YOURCBFILEPATH
    B- dism /Online /Get-Packages | findstr /c:”LanguagePack”
    (The above command will display all the language packages installed on your pc.
    C- Locate the language you want to remove from your Windows’ Image
    D- Run the command: dism /Online /Remove-Package /PackageName:THE PACKAGE NAME YOU WANT TO REMOVE. (It should start with Microsoft .. and make sure to enter the whole package name).
    E- Once removed, dism will ask you if you want to restart. If you still have unneeded packages press N and continue removing the extra language packages you want. When you’re done, press Y to restart.

    This will definitely work.
