Splitting Region and Language Control Panels

    Question

  • I see that Region and Language has been split in Win 8.  intl.cpl still points directly to Region, but the split out Languages doesn't seem to have any .cpl that I can either guess or figure out.  Can someone give me the control panel name for Languages?

    I think this is a good idea as the Language Control Panel is a big improvement over previous editions!

    Thanks!

  • Thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for... that's what the icon is called in the Control Panel.  I am looking for the control panel command line - Region still responds to intl.cpl.  What is the cpl command for Languages?

    Have you done a dir *.cpl from a command prompt on the System32 folder? I
    don't have a Win8 machine I can access currently.

  • Thanks for the response. I didn't find any .cpl file that directly opened Languages. I checked in system32 and sysWOW64. That probably means there isn't one.

  • Region and Language hasn't been split. What used to be called "Text Services and Input Languages" is now "Language". There has never been a CPL to run it even in earlier versions of Windows. The command to run it is: Rundll32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL input.dll
