Get your non-English DOS OS to show English

There are times you would wish your DOS session is in your native language, English (like when reading the ‘help’ contents).

To do this start up a DOS session and in the command prompt type and execute:

chcp 437

To find your current OS language code type and execute:

chcp

To revert back to the OS’s original language either close and restart a new session, or re-execute with your language code.
