The “Your Windows license only supports one display language” error typically occurs when you try to add an additional display language to your Windows system, but your current Windows edition or license does not support multiple display languages. Here are steps you can take to resolve this issue:

1. Verify Your Windows Edition:

Check the edition of Windows you are using, as some editions have limitations on the number of display languages supported. Only Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise editions, as well as Windows 8 and 10 Pro and Enterprise editions, allow you to install multiple display languages.

  • Right-click on the “Start” button and select “System” or “System Information.”
  • Look for the “Edition” or “Windows edition” section to confirm your Windows version.

2. Change Your Windows Edition:

If your current edition does not support multiple display languages, you might need to upgrade to a supported edition. This often involves purchasing a new license or upgrading through Windows Store.

  • Go to “Settings” > “Update & Security” > “Activation.”
  • Check for options to upgrade your Windows edition. This may involve purchasing a new license or upgrading through Windows Store.

3. Install Language Packs:

If you have a supported edition, but the error persists:

  • Go to “Settings” > “Time & Language” > “Language.”
  • Under “Preferred languages,” add the language you want to use.
  • Click on the language and select “Options.”
  • Under “Download language pack,” click “Download.”

4. Remove Unused Languages:

If you have multiple languages installed but encounter issues, you can try removing unused languages:

  • Go to “Settings” > “Time & Language” > “Language.”
  • Under “Preferred languages,” select the language you want to remove and click “Remove.”

5. Check Regional and Language Settings:

Ensure that your regional and language settings are correctly configured:

  • Go to “Settings” > “Time & Language” > “Region.”
  • Verify that the “Country or region” setting is correct.

6. Use a Microsoft Account:

Sometimes, using a Microsoft account to sign in might resolve issues related to language settings. Sign in or create a Microsoft account and link it to your Windows installation.


  • If you are using a non-genuine or improperly activated version of Windows, consider obtaining a genuine license, as this issue might be related to the validity of your Windows installation.

Always remember to back up important data before making significant changes to your system settings. If the issue persists, you may want to consult Microsoft Support or visit Microsoft community forums for additional assistance based on your specific Windows version and situation.
