I have windows 8 pro.

When I open the Store app, it always shows prices in Pounds. How do I change it to always show India Rupees?

Other apps/sections of my PC also bring up stuff that is suitable for UK. How do I change everything everywhere so that it always shows India, Rupees and whatever is relevant to the India region?

Open the Control Panel, select "Language". Here you can select your location, add languages (for example you could probably get hindi), keyboard layouts etc.
