I installed windows xp on a test bed with everything set to uk english and minimize stays minimize--there is no minimise

given your friends info, I would say that Microsoft has not opted to make a uk english windows xp beyond the localized options in the control panel regional settings.

I checked in some international newgroups and nothing contradicts that information

I think you are trying for the impossible here, short of hacking the code. I used resource hacker to search for Minimize and Maximize but was not able to find they so they are not stored in any known DLL (they are stored in a dll or ocx, of that much I am sure--but which one, I cannot say).

I'm afraid unless someone happens to know what resource this is stored in, we cannot help you with this issue

Okay then. Thanks for trying.

I emailed Microsoft but that didn't answer anything...

I think I'll try what they said, the knowledge base and the MVP thing. Then I'll just give up. Once again, thanks for helping. :whistling:

just as an add on to this here...today i had to switch one of my machines that has the MUI installed BACK to english from Japanese....i noticed that in the MUI menu for allowable UI languages..that English (United Kingdom) WAS in fact available...so i tried it...minimize stays as minimize..as does maximize and customize....no itteration has the ise instead of the ize i doubt that MS would waste coding time on something that trivial

Oh. Oh well. Worth a try. Thanks for the info, and for your time.

Microsoft need to realise that it's not trivial to someone who is from the UK... it's the language we speak.
