    Windows 8 Control Panel - Canonical Names

    We use group policy to customise the control panel items, the only thing we allow is the Region and Language, so the students can choose different keyboard inputs in the Asian languages class.

    For windows 7, this is Microsoft.RegionAndLanguage

    From here Canonical Names of Control Panel Items (Windows)

    It says 'Windows 7 and above' but in windows 8, there are two separate control panel items now, Region, and Language. My group policy only displays Region, and I cannot get Language to show.

    Any tips please?

    There's a PowerShell cmdlet called Get-ControlPanelItem that lists the canonical names of every Control Panel item in Windows 8/8.1.

    If you run this, it will tell you that 'Language' is Microsoft.Language.

    Awesome Arthur, thanks for the info about that powershell.

    (I actually figured out the answer by just guessing, but that powershell is great help.)
