Change my hotmail language back to English.

My account got hacked and now it's in another language. How do I set it back?
I tried calling the customer support. They were useless. The live help was a robot.
Are there real people out there?

I tried the link people have posted in other forums, they won't load. It says the site is
down.

Real help will be appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,


Welcome to Microsoft Community.

 

I understand that you are having trouble with the language your account is currently in and I’m here to help you sort this out. I would like to clarify if you are using a mail client or a web mail. If you're using Windows Live Mail under Windows 7 , please follow the steps below:


1. Click the Start button and you should see a text box with the caption "Search programs and files" and type langselector.exe.

2. Choose your preferred language and this will change the language of the programs under Windows Live Essentials but not your whole computer.


If you are using Outlook.com, please follow the steps below:

 

1. Login to your account.

2. Copy and paste the link in the address bar:

https://blu158.mail.live.com/P.mvc#!/mail/options.aspx?subsection=12&n=556230082

3. Select the language you want to use.

4. Click Save at the bottom of the language choices.


If you encounter a blank page when copying the link above, we recommend you to optimize your browser so that we can make sure your browser is not causing the issue.

               

Clearing the browser cache can help improve its performance when you use it to access Outlook.com and other services.

 

Please refer to the link below for the steps:

 

How to clear your browser’s cache


You can refer to the link below for the browsers that are best suited for Outlook.com:

Log into https://outlook.live.com/owa/?path=/options/regional. The top drop-down selects the language and you should be able to see "English" in it.
