Excel Online : How to change regional settings ?


I have an office 365 Home subscription, and I use Excel Online to edit and XLSX file stored on my Onedrive account.

The original XLSX file was created using Excel 2013 on a laptop, and now I try to edit it in Excel Online.

The original file has US regional settings.

When I open it in Excel online, it changes the regional settings of the file to French. I don't know why. I'm in France, actually, but I cannot find anywhere where I can edit the regional settings I want to use for my files or my Excel Online application.

any idea ?


Hello Christopher,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Office Community.

I understand your concern and will assist you with this issue.

Let's follow the steps mentioned below and verify the result.

Your regional settings are derived from the 'Account Settings' section of your Microsoft Account.

From OneDrive, click your name in the top right, then click Account Settings. Clicking Edit Personal Info takes you to a page that lists your Country/Region.

I hope the above information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.

Thank you.
