How to uninstall a .NET language pack for good?

Posted on September 7th, 2019

If you are also one of those that hates getting .NET Exceptions in your own language and actually running Windows 10 in English there is hope.

I recently got this issue on Windows 10 and I had no idea that I had actually installed the 'Danish' language pack. I needed Danish keyboard layout and other stuff, but not the language pack.

From the 'Languages' settings in Windows 10, you can't uninstall a language pack once it's installed. When installing a language you can opt-out from the language pack.


To uninstall a package pack do the following

  • Press Windows key + R
  • Type: LPKSETUP
  • Hit Enter
  • Click Uninstall display languages
  • Choose the language then click Next

This was for me a very hidden feature ... but I finally found it ... I'm so happy now. But I wish it would have respected it when also removing it from the "preferred languages" list ... which it did not.
