How To Change The Default Language For Windows 7 Logon Screen

First of all, if you run a Windows 7 version that doesn’t support multi-language you won’t be able to use the Multilingual User Interface (MUI) functionality to change the default language for Windows 7 welcome screen. Unfortunately, MUIs are only available in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise edition.

Basically, you are able to change that only when the Keyboards and Languages tab in Region and Language setting looks like below.
