How to Change My Yahoo Account to English

Updated March 23, 2017

Accessing your e-mail account usually takes just a few clicks of a mouse. However, if your language settings are changed from English to a foreign language, it can be difficult to decipher the words on-screen. Yahoo! accounts do not display user names and account settings in foreign languages, only in English. This means you can change your Yahoo! account back to English with a few easy steps.

Navigate to your Yahoo! Mail page. Click on your user name at the top of the page.

Select "Edit My Account" from the list.

Enter your Yahoo! password when prompted. Click the "Edit" button in the next window.

Click "Preferred Content." Select "English" from the list of available languages. Click "Finished."
