  1. Japanese IME, characters selection not available


    Hello,


    Using Windows 10 Pro, version 1909,

    IME for Japanese doesn't show the "characters selection" for Hiragana, Katakana, Romaji...

    The result of that is that I can't use Japanese on that computer.

    Why is that?


    I have already desinstalled, reinstalled... no luck.


    Do you have a solution for this issue?




    P.S. On the same computer, it work under the Administrator account...

    Switching Japanese Windows with English menus

    Yes, I do mean those keys. I tried just switching to Japanese keyboard, as you suggested, but those keys didn't work. Also, the selection key is normally the spacebar in Japan but I could only get IME to work with the Tab key (for those who aren't familiar with Japanese typing: you type in Roman characters, then press a selection key and it steps you through a list of options for the word you are typing in Japanese characters). Did you get the special keys to work as they do in native Japanese mode?

    It may well be that I was missing something, although I did try every option I could think of. In any event, as I said, I gave in and now have Japanese Windows running with English menus and everything seems to be working perfectly.
    Thanks,

    Mike

    Step 2. Select the preferred language pack > Click on Remove.

    Method 2: Re-adding the Language pack

    Step 1. Select the Start button, go to
    Settings > Time & Language > Region & language.

    Step 2: Click on Add a Language >Select the
    Language (Japanese).

    Step 3: Click on Set as default.
    The default language will be the first language in your language list.

    Step 4: If you click on Options button, you will see the following panel open up. Here you can download
    Language packs and add Keyboards and check the working of Japanese IME.

    Method 3: Restore from a System restore point

    You may refer the section
    Restore from a System restore point
