How can I get system locale in Windows 7?

I mean something like: cs_CZ.UTF-8

I tried writing "locale" in the command line but that doesn't work in Windows. Any suggestions?

There's not a specific command (or at least, not one that I'm aware of) to get this information, but you can find it between those provided by systeminfo.exe.

When running systeminfo on a command line, a lot of information is output to the screen. The relevant information to look for is: System Locale: en-us;English (United States) Input Locale: en-us;English (United States) –  djondal May 30 '14 at 8:40
systeminfo /FO csv | ConvertFrom-Csv | select *locale –  Ogrish Man Mar 6 at 11:04

get-UIculture or get-host in PowerShell
