Arabic in Windows 10 search box.

I just upgraded my Win 7 to 10. Everything seemed to come up right, but, for some strange reason, when I type in the search box to find apps, etc. I am writing in a foreign language (looks like Arabic.) Everything else I type is good.

Go into Control Panel, Region and set the region for your location. I do assume you have the right version of Windows for where you live.

Nothing such as Language or Region should change... but:
Check your Language and Region set up.

If Region settings do not fix this, run DISM Restore Health.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.

WOW, you guys are good! As soon as I asked the question the search box healed itself. Win 10 seems a bit spooky.
