    IME Japanese language input doesn't work after Windows 10 automatic update


    Hi!

    After the last automatic update at the end of January 2019 IME doesn't work any more. I can't switch to Kana input. I've reinstalled the Japanese Language pack, but it didn't solve the problem. What can I do to solve this?

    :)

    Can't switch input methods for Japanese Microsoft IME

    Not to be obtuse, but do you know Windows 10? This person is talking about the Windows 10 IME for Japanese, the one that gets installed when you add Japanese as input language. I have the same problem: alt-shift toggles between languages just fine, but by
    default the Japanese IME lets you type in latin characters ("romaji") and while we SHOULD be able to switch that input mode to hiragana, katakana, or even direct input, those options do not work. Even using the mouse to click the "A" and then selecting "hiragana"
    (written in Japanese for whatever reason all of a sudden, it used to be in English unless you were running in full Japanese locale mode) does _nothing_

    So: how do we fix that? What do we do in order to get the Microsoft Japanese IME to change input modes (not input languages) when Japanese is active?

    Want English language system with Japanese IME keyboard

    Hi Divya,

    while trying the method as you suggested, I could choose English as the display language,

    but then when I am trying to add the input method, it does not show Microsoft IME as an option in the list.

    at best I can only see/choose Japanese keyboard, but then the layout is different.

    I am using a Toshiba dynabook KIRA, and my base OS is Japanese windows 8.1 which I upgraded to win 10.

    IME Japanese language input doesn't work after Windows 10 automatic update

    Want English language system with Japanese IME keyboard

    In previous versions of Windows (English), the display language was English and I could have the default input language in Japanese (IME). It seems in Windows 10 that if I want Japanese IME to be the default input language I have to have the display language
    also in Japanese.

    I'm sure Microsoft wouldn't have done such a ridiculous change such as that because it would have been stupid, right?

    Please let me know how I can make Japanese (IME) the default input language with the correct keyboard but keep English as the system display language.

    Thanks!
