You may also want to edit permissions for existing users. In all cases, you’ll need to have admin access to your Synology DSM.

Whatever the reasons may be, it’s easy to add another language. We are using Windows 10, but the process should work similarly in other versions of Windows.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Click the Start menu in Windows, or press the Windows key. Doing so will bring up the Start menu, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click on the Settings button, as shown highlighted in red in Figure 1.
  2. Start menu in Windows 10
