I'm trying to change the language of my Outlook/Office 365.

At the moment my version of the site is in both French and English and I am trying to make it all English.

In the Settings right-side pane, I have tried to change the language by searching for "language" and then changed it to English, but several parts are still in French.

I have tried restarting the computer and the browser fruitlessly. And this doesn't work (when I click on the black on white default avatar seen on the previous screenshot and then my name, nothing happens, my name isn't a link).

Also, I am in the USA so I don't think this is a geographic-related language setting.

If you directly select the "Mail" item on the "Settings" panel the mail "Options" panel will open on the left side of the browser.

On the "Options" side panel dive into "Region and time zone" settings under the "General" group. On this page you'll see an extra checkbox which reads as "Rename default folders so their names match the specified language". I haven't tried to change my own language setting by using this checkbox but my guess is that this is the correct setting to solve your problem.

  • Nice! Thanks. Makes absolutely no sense that they wouldn't have that checkbox when you access these settings through a search though… – MicroMachine Jul 25 '16 at 18:02
