Applying new Language settings to the Logon screen
When you apply new regional and language settings on your Windows 7 computer such as, a new language pack, the new settings do not apply to the welcome screen, system accounts and new user accounts. For instance, when applying a new language, the logon screen does not display text in that new language by default!
In this case, you must copy the new international settings to the welcome screen, system accounts and new user accounts, using the control panel Region and Language snap-in. To complete the task select the Administrative tab on the Region and Language window, and click Copy Settings to copy your current settings to the above mentioned items.
The two options available in the Welcome screen and new user accounts settings page are:
- Select the New user accounts check box to copy the current settings to the default user account. The default account is used as a template for creating new user accounts. This setting allows administrators to set the default format, keyboard layout, and display language for new users. Any user account created on the computer after the settings have been copied to the default user account will have these settings applied. Existing user accounts aren’t affected.
- Select the Welcome screen and system accounts check box to copy the current settings to the Welcome screen and other system accounts (local system, local service, and network service). The system accounts are special accounts used by Windows services. This setting allows administrators to specify a display language and keyboard layout for the Welcome screen. It also sets the display language for users who haven’t specified a display language
