  1. The Pinyin for the Simplified Chinese Keyboard Doesn't Work


    I've been trying for hours to get the pinyin to work but still hasn't. Whenever I try to add tones to the letters, it just turns into the regular numbers. I don't know how it stopped working in the first place and i need it to work so that I can be able to add pronunciation into my flashcards quicker. I've installed a keyboard specifically for pinyin with tones for the time being, but it's not as convenient since i have to scroll through all of the other keyboards that I have on my computer already.

    :)

    Traditional Chinese pinyin keyboard in window 10

    How to HanYuPinYin to input Traditional Chinese in Windows 10?

    step 1: In Windows 10 , go to "settings"; "Time &" Language"; "Region & Language"; "Add a language"; "Chinese (Simplied)".

    please note: the (Simplified) includes the Traditional words.

    Step 2: under the "Language", select "中文(中华人民共和国)“;”Options“; ”Keyboards“;select ”Microsoft Pinyin“;”options“。

    Step 3:under ”Microsoft PinYin“, select”Character sets”, choose A character sets from (simplified Chinese) to (Traditional Chinese). The job is done!

    Please note: Although you can use this method to input hanyupinyin and get the traditional Chinese characters, but if you need to switch to Simplified Chinese, you have to go to the step 3 again and change the Character Set from Traditional Chinese to the
    Simplified Chinese. I hope Microsoft or its developers can add some patch to fix it so that in the future, users can easily switch language from English or Chinese Traditional or Chinese Simplified modes.

    Some other people suggested to use HongKong Traditional Chinese and bopomofo keyboard, but you can not select the candidite font (同音字)。I think Microsoft engineer may fix this bug in the future.

    Chinese Pinyin input

    Hi sanlvye,

    Yes, you may use Microsoft Pinyin (keyboard) for both Simplified and Traditional Chinese input. Here's
    how you can switch between Simplified and Traditional Chinese input when using Microsoft Pinyin (keyboard):

    1. Go to Settings > Time & Language >
      Region & language
      .
    2. Under Languages, select Chinese (Simplified). If you have not installed it yet, click on
      Add a language and search for Chinese (Simplified).
    3. Click Options and choose Microsoft Pinyin under
      Keyboards.
    4. Click Options > Keys > Hot keys.
    5. Under the Simplified/Traditional Chinese input switch option, turn it
      On.

    Let me know how it goes.
