How to Change Language from Hindi to English in Google Chrome

Google Chrome, being one of the most popular browsers for the Windows PC, offers the user an option to use the browser in their preferred language. For example, an Arab would prefer Arabic as the default language for Chrome and a Chinese would prefer Chinese as the default language for the Chrome browser.

Now, this is not the same as India. There is a misconception that Hindi is the national language of the country, whereas it is not. Despite, this when you try to download Chrome for the first time using a browser like Microsoft Edge, your default language will be set to Hindi instead of English. Now when you try to download Google Chrome, you will be redirected to the Hindi page of Google Chrome.

Once you download and complete the installation of Google Chrome, you will not be surprised to see everything in “HINDI.” Even if you think that you can change the language from the Settings, it would not be possible unless you can read Hindi as everything under settings will be in Hindi. This shouldn’t be a problem for anyone with the knowledge of Hindi, but for the people who don’t know, Hindi may find it difficult to change the language from the Settings.

This is something I didn’t find very convenient. I even had difficulty locating the language settings in Google Chrome, as everything was in Hindi.

Fortunately, by using a direct address to Google Chrome settings, I was able to locate the Language settings section and change the preferred language to English. So, if you are facing the same problem and want to change Language from Hindi to English in Google Chrome, then here is how I did it.
