How to Uninstall Eastern Languages
  

Hello everyone,
I had to install support for Eastern languages (Japanese, Chinese, Korean) to view files. But now I do need it anymore, and I get the 230 MB on my system disk.
Normally it is enough to go to Regional Options and uncheck the option "Oriental languages", but here the problem is that the box is grayed out. I tried to boot into safe mode with administrator profile to try to uninstall, but nothing, the option is always grayed out.

If I want to remove it, doing it is that comes an accented characters are now in kanji, my backslash appears as the Yen sign, in short it's a little Charlot, especially when it bump like me teleworking ...

If you have any ideas (except perhaps to advise me another one, I have no time before this weekend and again) I'm interested.

Thank you in advance.

To correct this problem backslash and links of all kinds I have simply been in the Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, and then the last tab (Advanced Options). Here I simply handed English (US) and validated and reboot. I thought that it is solved too but after rebooting, the backslash were back.

Okay. The simplest way to fix this problem is to do a system restore.

Re: How to Uninstall Eastern Languages

Go to Control Panel >>> Regional and Language Options (double click to open) >>> Languages (click on center tab)
Make sure "Install files for East Asian languages" is not checked
Make sure "Install files for complex scripts and right-to-left languages (including Thai) is not checked

Now click "Details," and make sure the only installed service is the US keyboard (there is a "remove" option if you see anything additional that you
don't want)

Probably a good idea to reboot the system after these actions, just for good measure.

Maybe if you clear these language options, you will be able to delete the stubborn fonts.
