How to change language back to English

My language is English.

 

I couldn't find any instructions/option to send a file via Skype (PS - How is this done?).

 

I wondered if I could just Copy/past an Excel file into the Skype messenger window.

 

THe file did not appear, but it changed my language to a hieroglyphic.

 

How do I get English back as my Language?

 

Do I have to uninstall/reinstall?

 

I cannot read any of the dropdowns - they are all in the strange language - so please provide very specific instructions.

On the Skype menu bar, click on the second-from-the-right item.  Then the second from the top entry on the menu that comes up.  Then the 10th from the top entry on the next menu that comes up.

To send a file, click on the contact you want to send it to, then the + at the top of the main window, then send file.  Navigate to the location of the file you want to send and click Open.

Re: How to change language back to English

PS - one more question - Where are my Skype Messenger (using Skype as an instant Chat) conversations stored?

Re: How to change language back to English

I spent hours trying to guess what the foreign language said so I could change the language back to English.  These instructions were perfect - I wish I had looked here first. Live and learn.  Thanks much for your help.
