How to Change the Language in Windows Media Player

This might be useful to someone whose native language is not English, or for someone who is trying to learn a foreign language.

Click on the "Now Playing" tab and select "More Options" from the drop-down menu.

Step

Click on the "DVD" tab and click on the "Defaults" button under the language settings.

Select the desired language for each category, then press "OK." Click "OK" again under the main menu and the changes will take effect.
