Perhaps:

or:

Although I think the choice will be either English - or USA English... Us Canadians use either or both - depending on our origins...?

next step is not crystal clear. comp MUST NOT use intuitive philosophy in its programme.
comp should recognize Canadian spelling of words.

You've lost me...

But if I am understanding your response correctly...

If your computer is set to use UK English then likely it will defer (intuit) to UK English. If it's set to use US English then similarly it will defer (intuit) to US English?

"Canadian" English (spelling)is essentially US English. As best I know there is no Canadian English option in M$ (including msn etc.) applications

I use UK English by choice/default when in Canada/USA and on a computer - being originally a Brit. But do on occasion adopt/use "some" US English spellings and terms... (which has occasionally caused some minor konphusion - even amusement - to some of my Brit colleagues at work in the UK in the past).

I "think" it's actually a registry tweak; but can't elaborate further.

Thanks for the reply .
The reason for this conversation is " how do I change to UK English MSN ?
I am located in Turkey. I did not ask the comp to change to turk msn, but it did so.
comps make changes without asking. Who is in control ? Well, that could be a question that you do NOT want the answer for.
Bottom line...how to permanently change to UK MSN and leave it there no matter
where I am located ?
Thanks

There was similar query here a little while back (sorry - I can't find the thread). However I seem to recall that responses stated that MSN defaults to the location the ip address indicates the user is located. Cannot remember the actual details nor the solution...

Having just set my default homepage to be msn.com (I'm in the UK at present) it defaulted to msn.com/en-gb (the UK site); which confirms the ip address being the locator...

Hopefully others here can/will get across this thread and the solution. If I can find it of course I will post it if it's hasn't been posted already.

See if this works?

http://homepage.msn.com

When you click on the "magenta(?)" box in the middle it will (typically MS) detect your browser and give the steps appropriate to it. I'm using Safari (on a Mac) and so it defers to Safari settings. IE various is a little different - and presumably you're using IE?

That seems a strange thing to say on here. Do you realise that we are not Microsoft or MSN? This is a forum where volunteers try to help others with their computer problems for free. We have no link to any commercial organisation.

Did you try:
On the homepage, next to the login icon is a carted wheel. Click on it and change the language.
