How can I use decimal signs (dots) instead of commas to display rational figures?

In some localized Windows OSes such as the French and Italian ones, the rational figures and numbers are displayed, by system default, using a comma. It is possible to avoid this behavior:

  1. from the Menu Bar.
  2. Tab of the pop-up window that will appear, change the language option to English.

Another way to obtain the same result is to right click on the cell and choose the 'Format Cell' quick menu option, displaying the pop-up cell properties window. Afterwards, follow the procedure described above.
