Microsoft Edge supports multi-region and multi-language as part of globalization. It allows changing the default display language for the menu, options, and settings within the browser to display in the native script. We can choose the language preferences and adjust the priority of the display language as per our requirements.
Recently, I was part of a team that had a few foreign delegates. During the meeting, my laptop was being used by quite a few people. Since most were from foreign countries, English didn’t seem to be their stronghold.
So when it came to browsing the web, the built-in Edge translator and the Google Translator managed to checkmark most of the requirements.
However, the real issue arose while understanding the browser’s settings and menus. It was hard to understand because each browser’s function was still in English.
Fortunately, Microsoft Edge does provide an option to change its display language to one of your choices. With this help, we could completely streamline the workflow and be in sync with the rest of the foreign members of our group.
The benefits of an app or software supporting numerous languages could be plenty and help globalize easily.
So, without further ado, let’s make you aware of the steps to immediately change Microsoft Edge’s display language.
Change Display Language
Microsoft Edge has a built-in feature allows changing the menu, options, and notification languages. We can add multiple languages and also choose our preferences. Here are the steps to change the display language:
- Launch the Microsoft Edge browser on your PC.
- Click on the More option for the menu list.
- Select Settings from the menu.
- Switch to the Languages settings tab from the left menu bar.
It will open the Languages settings page and display the list of languages added.

button under Preferred languages.
- Enable checkmark all the preferred languages from the list, and hit the
- Click on More next to the newly added language.
- Choose Display Microsoft Edge in this language option.
- Hit the
button to make the changes.
By default, the browser will always display the website in the language that occupies the first position in the pecking order.
Therefore you would have to move your preferred language to the top of this list so that the browser can display the sites in that language. For that, click on the More situated next to your language and select Move to the top.
The browser will display all its functionality/menu in English along the same lines. If you wish to change this, then click on the three horizontal dots next to your desired language and select Display Microsoft Edge in this language.
It is a welcome move from Microsoft that it has added support for numerous languages. We believe Edge will integrate more languages as part of its development process.
One could now use this browser in different languages to benefit the end-users. Still, it also helps the Silicon Valley giants attract more users to its service, even those from different world regions.
