  1. Chinese in Notepad


    Hello,


    Recently I was typing a Chinese essay on my computer in notepad. When I saved it, there was a message box that said I would lose my work if I didn't choose the correct encoding. Since I didn't really know what I should really do, I saved it as ANSI (the default). The next time I opened my essay, all that showed up was a bunch of question marks with the occasional comma or exclamation mark. I realized my mistake and I know that next time I should save in Unicode. However, is there any way I can get my work back?


    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 v1803 cannot copy paste Chinese characters

    I don't know why, It's strange!!!

    1. Every time I restarted my PC. Open a Notepad, input some Chinese characters with some English characters. Then, copy and paste them in Notepad, find that only English characters are copied while Chinese characters are lost. Then open the Microsoft Word
    2016, the situation is the same, copy paste will lost non-English characters.

    2. I tried following step, then the Windows 10 can copy and paste Chinese characters.

    • Press the 'Windows + R' keys together
    • In the 'Open' window input 'WinWord /a', and press Enter.
    Then the Microsoft Word was opened. I input some Chinese characters with some English characters, and then copy and paste them, found that Chinese characters can be copied!!! Then I closed Word, opened the Notepad again, inputted some
    Chinese characters with some English characters, found that Chinese characters also could be copied in Notepad!!!

    I don't know why, It's so strange!!!

    Notepad in Windows 10 doesn't display Chinese character

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I took your suggestion and created a new Notepad in Chinese. At the time I was typing it it showed the Chinese characters correctly, but after I saved and close the file, when I open it again it showed questions marks "????????" in place of Chinese characters.
    When I open another Notepad file containing Chinese characters created in a different computer, it showed a bunch of strange characters in stead of question marks.

    I did also tried changed the font style under format options, but it didn't help either.

    Thanks again for your effort and have a nice day!
