    Trying to play an English translated Japanese game and failing.


    Right, so, I was poking around for another game similar to the one I have been playing lately. Found another that it's native language is Japanese but it's been translated into English. It keeps crashing with a file error and while trying to find a way to contact the dev I found this at the bottom of the game's page

    "---------------------------------
    [Regarding File Issues]
    While the game contents that the player can see on the surface have
    been translated into English, within the underlying system there are
    filenames and program code that contain Japanese language characters.
    As with most products, Japanese language / region settings must be
    correctly applied before downloading, extracting and playing the game.
    http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/faq/.../mid/7/did/296 "

    And this is true, the files are in Japanese. So I click on the above link and it says for Win 8 / Win 10 (I am Win 10) it says I need to set my System Locale to Japanese. Doing so won't change my display language but will let Windows work with the files. And to do so I need to go to Control Panel -> Clock, Language, and Region, and click System Locale, and from there change it to Japanese. Well, I don't have a "Clock, Language, and Region" option in my Control Panel but I do have a Language option. But adding Japanese to that didn't fix the file issue. So... Anyone out there know how I may play this game?

    :)

    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

    Installed Translator for Microsoft Edge but language is in Japanese

    I bought a Japanese laptop a while back and did the procedures to change the native language to English. Some programs and features are still in Japanese but it doesn't bother me much. One feature that I want to use is the Translator for Microsoft Edge
    but it is in Japanese by default. How would I change it to English?

    Switching Japanese Windows with English menus


    I have just reinstalled my PC with Japanese Windows (it's the only way to enable the full use of a Japanese keyboard - special keys etc.). However, I want my system language to be English (menus etc.). So far I have tried the following:

    Settings:
    Installed English language pack
    Made English default language

    Power menu (not sure of proper name - win_key-x):
    Tried to switch language to English but does not appear in the menu.

    Suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Mike
