Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8

After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

Chinese Characters Suddenly Not Showing On Screen

Chinese characters suddenly did not show up on screen in windows 7 ultimate x64. I used "quick" chinese input method in windows 7 ultimate x64 rtm to input traditional chinese characters to notepad or other applications. However, i found that after typing the chinese characters for some time, suddenly the chinese characters will *no* longer display on screen but instead showing the english letters on screen. But the "quick" input method is still in effect in the language bar. I need to close that application and restart it in order to resume typing the traditional chinese characters. But after some time, this problem will happen again, and i found that it is very annoying to close and restart the application repeatedly.could microsoft investigate this and provide a hotfix to solve the problem ?

How To Use Chinese Language?

I have read some of the q/a concerning chinese language, and am more confused than before. I understand that chinese language capability needs a special download. My initial question is whether one can switch from english to chinese (and vice versa) simply by hitting a toggle key, or are things more cumbersome? Other questions: what form/s of chinese input is/are available? Is there a chinese-english or english-chinese dictionary capability?

Language Bar Problem With Default Selection

I have added the us-international keyboard. The language bar gives me 2 options (us-i or us). If i select us-international, it converts to us whenever i open a new window (e.g. Thunderbird). I then have to re-select us-i. Is there a way to make the selection stick? Never had this issue with xp.

How To Change Display Language?

I buy a desktop and it supposed to be installed with windows 7 home premium with swedish language. But it's not. I talked to the reseller and they will send me a new dvd with windows 7 in swedish, so fare so good but:-

Do i really have to reinstall the whole computer?
Is there not a way to just change the display language?

I have already started to use the computer and it will take 14 days until i get my dvd. Isn't there any work around to just upgrade windows 7 or just change language in an easy way. It doesn't matter if the operating system is in english but i need the displays to show text in swedish.

Change Language On Laptop With Preinstalled Windows 7

Recently bought a laptop with windows 7 home premium in spanish pre-installed. I want to change this to english as a once off (i.e. I do not need the multiple language options that ultimate provides).

Can i purchase another upgrade package for windows e.g. Starter to home premium in english and use that product key when i change the language?

So it seems ridiculous that i need to buy a massive upgrade to ultimate that i won't use 90% of the features or a complete new install simply to change the language? I know how to change the language files and can do that myself if need be.

How To Change Default Audio Output?

I have an evga 790i ftw motherboard and am using the optical connection on the back for sound. It is connected to my stereo receiver. As of right now, i go to sounds, then select digital audio as my output, and go to properties. Under "supported formats" i can select dts or dolby digital, and when i press test, everything checks out. Afterwards, i go to "advanced" and the default format will only let me select a 2 channel, and that is all that plays out of my stereo. How do i go about changing my output to that of 5. 1 or 7. 1?

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?

Can't Change Default Program For Image Files

I have just upgraded from the coreldraw x4 suite of graphics/image processing applications to version x5 on my windows 7 ultimate machine. The new version runs fine, so i uninstalled the x4 version. I then wanted to make photopaint the default program for editing a range of image file formats (i use picassa as my album and right clicking to select the program to edit the image is really great).

For some reason, however, photopaint (x5) doesn't appear in the list. When i 'browse' for it i can find the photopaint .exe file. However, after i select it and click 'open' (and the 'browse window closes) there is no change to the default program. The only correct file:program association i can see is for the native corel image format (. Cpt). What gives?

Since windows 7 does not display all of the characters i need i used 'eudcedit' in order to create my own. This works great in windows. I have no problem using the characters i create in programs. The problem arises when i go to print a newly created character on my hp p3005 laserjet printer. The printer does not print the characters which i create.

Chinese Programs In Win7

So i have been using my old computer with windows xp on it for a few years, and recently decided to get a new one. The store clerk ask me if i want to use windows 7 home or pro, being just an average user, i surf the web, play some online game, maybe do some pictures editing. I don't do any program writing or some crazy computerize work, so i picked windows 7 home premium.

Then after i got home and start to reinstall/update all the programs that i need to use, i then found out all my programs that display chinese turn into a bunch of "?" After some searching on the internet, i found out windows 7 home premium doesn't display chinese in programs. Seriously, why is something that has been available with a basic version of windows all of sudden need to be upgrade to windows 7 ultimate to use? This isn't even offer in windows 7 pro. I didn't even know about it before i purchase the computer.

I mean, if microsoft wants to make more money, at least offer the language packs in the home version. So now what can i do? I can't even find my old windows xp disc, so i can't switch back to windows xp. Do i have to pay another cad$250 to get the ultimate just for a simple reason to read chinese in programs? Is there any other way for me to display chinese in programs?

I haven't been able to find anything online but it cant just be me? Is anyone else having this problem and have a fix for it?

Input Language

I have windows 7 ultimate and have added korean through windows update. I have also added korean as an input language but when i display the properties of the keyboard it shows the us english layout. When i switch between them the language bar shows korean but sill puts english characters on the screen. I have tried removing the input languages and uninstalling the language pack and reinstalling it. I believe the problem is with the properties of the korean keyboard properties. How do i fix this?

Language Choice

I live in the netherlands and have been looking for a pc, with win7 in english. A couple of places sell pcs with a choice of dutch or english win7 home. But i am unsure about this. I thought a choice of a different language was only available with ultimate. Nevertheless i have been informed that it is possible to make the choice of language once only and at the initial setup stage. I would be grateful for advice as to whether this is feasible. If it is not, would i be better off buying an english version of the home edition win7 and do a clean install on the new pc before i transfer my programs from my old pc?

Language Problems

I am on a trip abroad and i had recently bought a laptop computer that has windows 7 home premium oem 64 with japanese interface language installed on it. My problem is: i don't read japanese. I checked with that retailer and they told me its not possible to switch the language on any specific machine they sell since its the oem boxed set and that those can't be changed by the retailers. They did however offer me to spend more money and to buy a windows 7 upgrade which, as they put it will allow me to download language packs from microsoft and to change the actual interface language.

A friend of mine has bought windows 7 home premium english version 64 installation disk for her computer. And my question is : is it possible to somehow run a repair installation using her disk to change the interface language on my laptop using my product key? I mean, the os is non usable to me and in order to get any work done on that new laptop of mine i need it in english. If a repair installation isn't the solution please advise me on a reasonable solution to changing the interface language on windows 7 home premium.

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

Keyboard Language Toolbar

I agree with the query:  there is an easy route to removing the language bar (i.e. The way to control the keyboard language) in windows 7, but not to restore it. Windows 7 help says that one is to do it via toolbar selection after right-clicking the taskbar. Unfortunately, that is wrong: there are only 3 toolbar on offer in that pane:  address, links and desktop. And btw:  might i suggest that the support engineer remove the response from "rockmoibebe", as it does not solve the problem.

Email In Arabic Language

My friend is using windows vista premium home edition, when working with email like gmail/hotmail/yahoo mail etc he cannot write the subject and body of letters in arabic language, while search field and address fields are ok for arabic. He can write arabic language in other applications like ms word/ notepad etc with no problem. But in the above subject and body letter field, when he tries to write in arabic, the keyboard keys displays numbers and other special characters. I checked different options of regional languages and internet explorer language settings, but i couldn't able to fix the problem.
