. ah. quick question, minna. Does anyone here use Windows 7?. if so, can you help me with something?. See, i want to be able to type Japanese on my keyboard~ i just don't have any idea how i can change it for Windows 7. :)) the thing is, when I tried to change the Language Options to Japanese, it doesn't really changed anything. I'm not even sure if I did the right thing there. and now I'm stuck. does anyone here knows?
I'd be grateful for any help you can offer. Thanks a lot!. :dance:

I have windows 7 as well


Control panel

Clock Language and Region

Region and language

Keyboard and languages tab

Change keyboards

Under General you can hit the Add button on the bottom right hand corner
Scroll down to Japanese, Keyboard and check Microsoft IME
Hit ok in this window and then hit Apply in the General tab ( very bottom right under the add button you hit before )


This will enable you to type in Japanese

Now in the same "Text Services and Input" window that had the general tab where you hit add to add a language, go to the Language bar tab. I choose to have the language bar docked in the taskbar, make sure this is the case and hit apply

Now you should have an "EN" symbol and a keyboard by the clock in your taskbar. You can hit EN and change it to japanese, then hit the keyboard to select hiragana.

It will no operate properly. There are keyboard shortcuts you can play with under "advanced key settings" to make a faster transition then having to click on it.

Any other problems let us know.
