The region location in Windows 10 is used by apps to provide localized content. For example, the built-in news or weather app shows you local news or weather forecast for your country, and the Windows Store shows local apps in the first place. By default, the region location is configured during Windows 10 installation but you can change it later. Here are 2 simple ways to change region location on Windows 10.

Method 1: Change Region Location on Windows 10 Using Control Panel

  1. Open the Control Panel in Large icons view, and then click Region.

  2. In the Region window, go to the Location tab. You can select a new country from the “Home location” drop-down list.

  3. Click OK to confirm changing the region location.

Method 2: Change Region Location on Windows 10 Using Settings App

  1. Press the [Windows] + [L] keys to access the Settings app, and then click Time & language.

  2. Choose the Region & language tab in the left side. On the right, click the “Country or region” drop-down list and select the new country you want applied.

  3. Restart your computer to force all apps to use the new region location.
