How to change your browser's language settings

Workbooks Support Posted: 2016-08-25 10:57

If you use various keyboard shortcuts or key combinations like Alt + Shift + 0, you might have noticed that the format can be different for every user within Workbooks. Many users mistakenly think that this is related to their machine's Region and Language settings or Preferences within Workbooks, when in fact it's your browser's language settings.
