TUT Country Locale

Many non-USA Windows XP and Windows 7/8/8.1 users complain to us that TUT is showing the wrong country locale (Country Location).

Well, on this particular issue TUT is actually 100% correct.

There are 4 different places in Windows where the correct Country Location needs to be set.  Many users are not aware of this with the result that, for those users, part of Windows will have the correct Country Location set, but other parts of Windows will still be set at the default Country Location which is always USA.

To correct this, do as follows :

  1. Double-click the Regional and Languages Options icon in the Control Panel ("Region and Language" in Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1).
     
  2. You will see on the first screen the first two places where you need to set the Country.
     
  3. Next, click on the  ADVANCED  tab.  That tab has the third Windows Country setting which you need to set.
     
  4. Lastly click on the  LANGUAGES  tab and then on the  Details  button.  This is the fourth and last Country setting you need to verify and adjust if necessary.
