How do I change the IE11 language preferences independently from the Windows language preferences?

Hi, I would like to change my IE11 language preferences, independently from the windows language settings.

At the moment, when I do

IE11 -> Toole -> Internet Options -> Languages -> Set language preference

I end up with

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Language

What is the way, to change the language setting independent from the OS language?

I think at previous IE or previous windows versions, these settings were independent from each other!

Hi and Welcome!

Internet Explorer grabs the language pack that is currently installed with the host Windows. Changing this would then change Windows, as you found out.

What language is installed on the PC and which language would you like to use?

it does not matter which ones are installed.

What matters is that they are married with each other.

Would it be possible for you to use your MVP influence, to put back the language setting in IE11 / edge.

So that it is independent from the OS. It used to be independent!

Or maybe there is a secret key the windows registry available, that I could set manually?
