SystemLanguage/UserLanguage

Hi,

Does anyone know the difference between
"window.navigat or.systemLangua ge" and
"window.navigat or.userLanguage "? What can be detected with each of
them? Do you know which languages are represented?

I would like to know as much as possible about these 2 settings.

Thanks in advance

They are both from IE, one storing the language of the operating system, the
other the langauge setting of the browser.

More and a list of language codes can be found at

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
