I use the Chrome browser as my main browser and then use Yahoo mail as my everyday mail account.
Operating system is Windows 10.
I also have several other languages available for the browser since I do write in a few other languages.

Now all of a sudden, when opening up Chrome, and then the Yahoo mail account, I get the mail account in the Dutch Language.
It took a couple of seconds for me to realise that it was not in English since I can read and understand the *not English* dialogs.

OK for me, but not good for anybody else who may be using this PC, since it is a *Family PC*.
It has to be just the Yahoo mail account, since anything else via the Chrome browser is in USA English.
I have a Gmail account which is in USA English.
Reading the CD forum is in USA English.

I have attached two pics.
Pic 1 - Yahoo mail initial screen in English
Pic 2 - Actual mail account in Dutch

If, while in the yahoo mail account, I click on anything else, like *Yahoo Sports*, or anything else, then it is in English. Thus *only* the mail is in Dutch !

I have while in the mail account and the whole thing in English, written mails in other languages.


Now the question. Does anybody know how to get the mail account(s) back to USA English ?
TIA

For those who have this happen also, I did find the way to get it back to your original language.
