Change the default for Windows System's Culture, DateFormat & Local settings.
At present the Regional & Localisation Powershell commands are per user &/or session based.
There does not appear to be a way to change the default Regional settings for all users. eg: Default user, System User &/or the setting for the entire windows system. (ie All System accounts, all existing accounts & any new ones etc)
I'd like an option on the existing powershell commands to force a system wide change for default accounts & possibly for all existing accounts.
The goal is to change the DateFormat, Culture & Location to something else. In our case DMY & Australia
You may think this would be unnecessary if these settings had been set correctly at the time windows was installed.
Unfortunately the Azure VM's are syspreped to en-US. So we need to change this via Azure ARM setting or DSC when the VM is created.
Both appear to lack any option to do so.
The only option I've seen is to hack the registry. Not a great option.
Alternatively we could create & maintain our own Azure sysprep'ed Image. That sucks too as we lose a key benefit of MSFT maintaining the latest Windows images.
Yes. I don't like the localized translations. I like the original English version.
