How to change "Search the Web" automatic results page from Chinese to English language? douglas.smarttrading 3/31/10 5:12 AM
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
All of a sudden, at my gmail, the language of my results page for "Search the Web" changed to Chinese; it was English before.

If click the same from my Google home page, the results page is still English. Same if I click at google.com search.

How do I get my gmail search to be in English?

Thank you.

Douglas

Hi A, Thanks for the info.

My Windows has Internet Options under Tools. There are no just Options or Basic tabs.

When I sign into my mail at https://mail.google.com/mail... and enter a word to Search the Web, I get http://www.google.com.hk/search... in Chinese characters.

When I go to http://www.google.com/ and (whether I am signed in or not) enter a word to Search the Web, I get http://www.google.com.hk/search... in English words.

Seems this is a Gmail setting... No?

Thanks.
