Default regional settings on windows 2000

Posted on 2006-04-27
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
When I installed my machine I choose Dutch (Belgium) as the default regional settings.
I have to change it now to English (US), but can't find how to make it the default for new users.

When a new users logs onto the system, he automatically gets the Dutch (Belgium) regional settings instead of the English (US) regional settings.

Can someone tell me how I change the default regional settings?

Thx in advance!

    Good Luck,

    To add an input language for the default user account
     Log on as an Administrator.
     In Control Panel, double-click Regional and Language Options to open it.
     Click the Languages tab, and then under Text services and input languages, click Details.
     Under Installed services, click Add.
     In the Input Language box, click the input language that you want to add to enable users to input text in that language, and then click OK.

    If you want to add more than one input language, repeat this step for each language that you want to add.
     Click OK or Apply to close the Text services and input languages dialog box.
     Click the Advanced tab, and then select the Apply all settings to the current user account and to the default user profile check box.
