How To Change Input To Japanese On Language Bar?


First problem i haven't been able to find a fix on the internet already. Where better to come then here! I am trying to find out how to type in hiragana on windows 7, i know how to do it on xp but no idea in 7. I open up the language bar and set it to japanese (see fig 1) and yet i cannot find the change input button.

Japanese Ime Not Allowing Input Mode To Be Changed

I've recently updated from windows update, and now my japanese ime doesn't work anymore. Pressing alt + shift changes my language to japanese from us, afterwards, i cannot click on the input mode button to get the drop down box to change to hiragana, katakana, etc. Alt + capslock, ctrl + capslock, alt + ~, all these keys don't work. The input mode button is greyed out. If i clicked on the desktop, it lets me change the language, but in notepad, firefox, office, etc. The input mode button is disabled and i cannot even click on it. Please any help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks

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?

Input Language For All Users

Is there a way to make the language toolbar stick for all users? In xp, if you turned on the language toolbar, it was on for all users. I can't seem to figure out a way to have it stay for all users. Each user seems to have to go to the control panel>clock, language and region>change keyboards options. I work in education so we'd like to keep from having to make every student that logs into a computer go through the steps of adding the keyboard layout each time they use a new computer.

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.

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.

Usb Microphone Input Is Overpowered By Input Device

I connected a behringer "u-phono uf0202" audio interface usb device on a toshiba qosmio x505 computer. The device takes analog signals from tape recorders and inputs digital signals to the usb port. The device is automatically identified and drivers installed - no software from the manufacturer, just microsoft drivers.microsoft drivers treat it like a usb microphone and the behringer audio interface way overpowers the input. The level setting has to be set at 2 or 3 to keep the level indicators from maxing out. Do i need to force a different driver for this device that has more output than a microphone? If so how do you get the driver installed on the right usb port every time you plug in the device?

Japanese Keyboard Layout

I just installed windows 7 professional english version on my computer which has a japanese keyboard. During the installation, i set the keyboard layout as 'japanese', but now it works like a us keyboard. I checked:-

[Control panel] -> [change keyboards or other input methods] -> [tab: keyboards and languages] -> [change keyboards. ] And found the japanese keyboard layout, but it was the us layout. Also, i read the page http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/927824 but it didn't work on windows 7. How can i fix this?

Wmp12 Display Japanese

Is there any way to display japanese lyrics in wmp12? I can see the lyrics just fine on wmp11 inside my xp mode. Unfortunately, not all my songs launch in the wmp11 inside xp mode (otherwise i would just use wmp11). I see weird characters when i try to listen to the song in wmp12 (not the blank boxes).

If there is a place to download the japanese version of wmp12, that would work too, as long as the menus are not weird characters ( i can read japanese). I have w7 64 pro in english.

Japanese Ime Keyboard Layout

When using the microsoft ime for japanese input the ime defaults to japanese keyboard layout even though i am using a uk keyboard. For e.g. The @ and " are the wrong way round. I know other keyboards can be chosen under the japanese language however choosing anything but the microsoft ime results in not being able to input japanese.

So. The ime must be used. How can the layout be changed under the microsoft ime? This issue existed in vista and xp. In fact the last time i remember being able to use a uk keyboard on a japanese ime was on windows 98!

Upgrade Japanese Edition To Ultimate

I live in japan, i bought a new pc earlier this year with a pre-installed 'japanese 32 bit copy of windows 7 home premium' and i want to run 'windows 7 ultimate' - my japanese isn't good enough to understand all the windows 7 options.

I've been trying to use the upgrade anytime function - which apparently is available in japan - but for some reason it doesn't let me even look at purchasing an upgrade.

Where can i buy an upgrade? Can i buy an upgrade from another country? Do i have to buy a japanese upgrade? Will my japanese software run in a windows 7 ultimate where english is chosen as the main language?

Can't Properly Type With Japanese Ime On English Keyboard

Can't properly type with japanese ime on the english keyboard /windows 7 english version i have a problem with the english windows 7 home premium on the english keyboard when typing japanese using ime. No, i should not need the ultimate edition: with windows vista and xp home premium or equivalent editions, there wasn't such a problem. With windows 7 ime, the keyboard layout seems to be tied to japanese keyboard.

For example, if you type [shift] + [2], - english keyboard returns [@]
- Japanese keyboard returns ["] (double quotation)

I physically have an english keyboard with my pc, and i get ["] when i actually meant to type [@]. As i mentioned, it was perfectly fine with xp or vista to type with japanese ime and with the english keyboard layout. How do i make the same setting with window 7?

No Keyboard Input Available

There is a user who started having problems this morning. The machine is 1 week old, loaded with windows 7 ultimate 64bit. The keyboard is dead, the only thing i'm able to do is turn the f-lock on and off nothing else responds. I tried plugging in another usb keyboard and then a ps-2 keyboard and neither work. When i was finally able to use the on screen keyboard to login i found in device manager there was an error 19 for the keyboard saying that driver information in the registry had become corrupt so the device couldn't be started.

So i look that up and find that deleting the upperfilter in the registry was suggested. So i deleted the upperfilter and rebooted and still no keyboard. I can use the keyboard in the bios and to select safe mode or normal mode but once windows starts the keyboard is dead. I've also noticed that everytime i reboot along with the usb keyboard and mouse a ps-2 keyboard and mouse is installed in the device manager with exclamation marks. I've restored to earlier times when everything worked and still no keyboard. Any ideas?

Mouse / Input Delay In Win 7

After extensive testing with benchmarking, and using the exact same hardware with the exact same drivers i have reached the following conclusion. Any input within the system in windows 7, takes 30-32 ms more to be processed. My system is an i7 975, with 12gb 1600 mhz ddr3 ram, a raid 0 configuration of 2 velociraptor 10, 000 rpms and an hd 5970 graphics card. Which is basically an apex of performance as of december 2009.

Why does windows 7 have this slightly noticeable lag? Would reinstalling help? Could it be due to any of the above hardwares?

Garbled Text Input From Keyboard

When typing on my keyboard my input is sometimes garbled or rearranged. Running 64-bit windows 7 ultimate. Problem appears occasionally. Goes away when computer is restarted. Might go for weeks without a problem.computer is on during the day and off each night. When the problem occurs i can plug in a different keyboard and the problem continues. When the problem occurs, i can input successfully if i use the "on-screen keyboard" application.

The garbled characters appear in the same sequence as the key order on a qwerty keyboard. In other words, for example, i might try to type "green" and the characters may appear as "asdfg" or "xcvbn" or any other 5 characters that are sequential on a qwerty keyboard, including numeric keypad. Shift key works properly.

Monitor Only Works With Analogue Input

I have installed windows 7 on a new hard disk in my pc. I also have a new graphics card geforce gt240. When running vista my monitor was connected via dvi only. When i boot up the machine the monitor works until just after the windows logo and then goes blank. It works fine with an analogue cable. I have installed the latest driver from nvdia for the graphics card. In device manager the monitor driver shows up as generic non pnp monitor. It is a viewsonic 20inch flat panel monitor and is definitely pnp.

It works fine in dvi on another machine running xp so the monitor is ok. I tried loading a new viewsonic driver but the installation said it couldn't detect my monitor and aborted. Should i try to install a generic pnp monitor driver and if so where can i get one?

Keyboard Input - Audio Output Timing Lag

I have a new dell vistro 1720 running windows 7 pro, 3 gb of memory. I've installed microsoft's virtual pc and am running a xp virtual pc because of a legacy app our business requires. It's all running great except for a timing skip/lag in the keyboard input and audio output. I don't mind the audio skips but a one or two second delay in displaying what i'm typing is bothersome. I've increased the amount of allocated memory to the virtual pc and reset the process priority to high with no discernible difference. Any ideas?

Dynamic Pen Feedback In Win 7 - Tablet Pc Input Service

There is a wonderful video on the web explaining how to disable this annoying feature, but it only works in higher versions of windows 7 due to lack of expedite. Msc. Here is the video. http://vimeo.com/8567716

Using only the "services" part of this fix does not help.completely disabling it made the feedback disappear only until i put my computer to sleep. After the feedback returned, i re-enabled, then disabled "tablet pc input service". Now i can't even get it to work for a second. Also, geek squad didn't know. The sooner the reply the better i use my tablet for my job and trying to draw with that splash is impossible

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.
