I closed the programme and re started.
Just need to know which drop down bar has tools on it and then which one is language It is all backwards
Tech Support Specialist: Cris, Support Specialist replied 4 months ago

Try this.

Click on the 5th menu option at the top from where it says Skype.

Then place your mouse over the 2nd menu on the drop down. That should bring up languages, change to English.

Please reply back to me if it worked.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
