Windows – Change language of Windows 7 Home Premium to French

languagewindows 7

I have a Dell Inspiron 17R (SWITCH) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. I want it to be in French rather than English. With Dell, I have received no installation CD, with the exception of Dell drivers.

I know it won't let me work in my language of choice by default. I do not want to pay for an upgrade to a higher version because the Home Premium version is adequate for me.

Is there an unofficial patch in this case?

Sorry, but Home Premium does not allow you to work in the language of your choice:

If you do upgrade, here is a link on how to install language support:
