Do I need to keep these Input Method Editors?

Q: Do I need to keep these Input Method Editors?

I was checking out this cleanup software and found on one screenshot some references to the Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Microsoft Pinyin Input Method Editors.

Do I need to keep those IME, or is it OK to remove them?

Preferred Solution: Do I need to keep these Input Method Editors?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Do I need to keep these Input Method Editors?

Don't use "cleaners".By using cleaners you earn 000.1 in speed and sometimes they make the things worse.
Windows 7 is not xp,windows 7 is smart is cleaning up and tidy up up itself without the need of extra software.
Though if you like to "clean" your system use the windows 7 friendly free CCleaner.

I've checked this option, but I can't find how to actually set the input method.

Windows still does things on it's own, or not, just that I'm not a part of it.

What am I missing here?

Anyone who has typed in Japanese or in any language that doesn't use Alphanumeric symbols knows what an IME is. An IME (Input Method Editor) is a program that allows you to type in foreign characters. I've been wanting to create my own. I'm currently writing a story and some of the characters speak a fictional language. I don't have a font that I could use to write this language down so I figured I could make an IME. I've heard that Adobe Photoshop can be used to create fonts but I've searched high and low on the net and haven't found any tutorials. Can anyone help with either problem? Creating an IME or to make my life easier, creating a font with Photoshop.

A:Input Method Editor

BUMP, anyone?

I am learning Japanese and I frequently use an Input Method Editor (IME). It's a program that allows me to input Japanese text by typing in their symbols in English, e.g. typing in arigato would give me 有難う or if I spell it out I'd get ありがとう. It's like predictive text in cell phones except that it gives me the symbol(s) that stand for an idea as opposed to typing it out. I was wondering how Input Method Editors work because I thought that it would be an interesting project to create one that typed in a fictional language. Thoughts, suggestions?

I have configure my language bar to be selectable between German and Japanese.

I can switch to Japanese, but although I set the input method to "hiragana", only latin characters are displayed.

Any idea what could be missing? I don't have much experience with Windows 7 yet. I used Windows 2000 before, where Japanese input was easy.

Hi. I am looking for Input Method for Latin Language (language that still used in Roman Catholic Church). Microsoft provides this language in Office, but not in Windows 8(.1) via Control Panel in language input method. I cannot synchronize the input method
between Windows and Office as well as Indonesian, Italian, Thai, etc. I think many people still need this language to work with Ecclesial work such as daily prayer in Latin language or bible study. Is there any update for this language? If not, I ask Microsoft
to provide Windows update for Roman Latin language. Thank you very much.

Here is a link for reference of all the language options :

I somehow seemed to have disabled my input methods.

I currently have two input methods, Korean keyboard and Japanese keyboard on a Korean Win 8 OS. For the record, korean and japanese input methods have a toggle key which converts them back and forth to English(korean) keyboard and English(Japanese) keyboard respectively [which both have subtle difference to a 'normal' English keyboard in that certain SHIFT key characters are in different places, etc].

Normally hitting the toggle key would switch from Korean/Japanese Keyboard to English(Korean/Japanese) Keyboard and vice versa, however the toggle key is not allowing this change at all.

Observe the three images below:

Images 1 and 2.
Image 3.

Normally there should be a current input method above the time in the taskbar for the first image; input method on the blank space next to the Power Icon for the second image; and it's not like the input methods were gone or disabled evident by the third image.

My question is, how do I turn the input method back on such that the toggle key will work and the input methods will display on the empty places on the first and the second image?

During the installation stages of windows 8, I choose English language and US as keyboard input method. But after few weeks later, I bought a new British style keyboard and in control panel I replaced US method with English (United Kingdom). While I'm logged into the operating system the input method works correctly, but after every shutdown on a next user log in when I'm writing my password it's still English US method that not corespondent with the keys on the keyboard. This not happening if I put the system in sleep mode.

Hi Luozhibin, welcome to the Eight Forums.

Open the Language Preferences, click Advanced settings:

Enable using different input language in every app:
Click Save to save your settings.

Now you can select an input language independently in every application. Switching between applications automatically switches to input language you have selected for that app, and to default input language when desktop is active.

This is my first post on this site, so hi.

if you add an input method by mistake you CANNOT it seems remove it again.

The remove button is greyed out. This applies to Windows 8.1 not W8.

Anybody know how to get rid of this.

In Windows 7, the input method is application-specific, i.e., when you change the input method in one application, it doesn't affect other applications. However, in Windows 8 this seems to be changed: the input method is system-wide.

The problem is: I need to use Chinese input (either the embedded Windows Chinese input, or the one from Google, I prefer to use the later), which seems to only use US keyboard layout. However, I am using Finnish layout, so the locations of symbol keys are different. I need to frequently switch the input methods, which is really annoying. I really miss the one in Windows 7: the Chinese input was only effective for the application I needed to type Chinese

Hi all~

Working on a group lab project for a hangman game; initial testing phase. Flow of the game- user enters a word (no try catches set yet) of 13 letters or less- if the second player enters an incorrect guess(using a button- which tested works), will draw a part of the hangman. Three classes for the program; one handles the logic, one handles the gui setup (including the main) and the other handles the paintComponent. As shown below (in testing phase), if a user enters an incorrect guess a call is made to the class that develops the hangman graphics (drawLeg()). When running the program a null pointer exception is generated. I've thrown this code around a billion different ways with no relief- any pointers will be greatly appreciated!

In "My Music" I have two sorts of files. Those I have downloaded from KaZaAlite, and those I have got off CD's using XP Media Player.

All the audio editors I have tried (including one that was suggested on this forum) either won't save the results as an mp3 (illegal?) or won't open certain files.

I do belly dancing and the tracks I have are maybe 15min long but the dance is 3min in the middle of the song! I was successful in chopping a song I downloaded off Kazaa (before Power Audio Editor run out of free time) but with the new audio editors I have tried, they will not open songs I have got from CD (Copywrite??).

Since I am only using the demo versions I wonderd if the purchased software would do the trick, but ranging in price from $5 - $345 I am unwilling to pay the price until I know more (and you can double those US dollars to equal NZ dollars!).

A:Registry Editors

Most people here, including me, don't recommend using registry cleaners. They can delete things that can cripple your computer. I've done it to mine a few times. But, if you feel you need to do something there is THIS SITE which is Micro$oft's One Care that will go through your registry. Since it is their program, XP, it might be OK. But I'm not endorsing it. It too might do something wrong. I've used it a couple of times and so far nothing bad has happened.You can also click on Start, Run and do a sfc /scannow it will run a check on your system files and repair or replace them. You must have your XP disc in and sit there while it's running, because it won't always find the file it's looking for and you need to click on the "retry" button. It takes about 40 to 45 minutes on my computer...I'm sure someone else will come along with more advice soon and you can ponder all of it and decide what to do, or not do.Good Luck...

What is the best registry editor, if there is one? I have been using Uniblue and ran it and corrected my registry. I then downloaded a trial copy of Registry Cure and ran it, It says I have over 600 errors in my registry. Anyway my subscription to Uniblue has expired, what should I get.


A:[SOLVED] Registry Editors

Hi Phil. . .

I would advise that you do not use any of these products. They are an absolute waste of money and they could end up corrupting your registry. Then you'll be back to see me when the BSOD epidemic begins.

The items it is flagging as "errors" are not errors at all - just entires in the registry that currently have no association to them. They hurt nothing, take up very little space and cause non-measurable time loss during boot-up when the registry is assembled from files found on your hard drive. We are talking about a fraction of a second.

600 items out of the Vista NT Registry which can easily contain 500,000 + entries represents just 0.12% of total.

To give you an example of how some of these "errors" occur - assume that you no longer have use for Microsoft Word and un-install it. A registry scanner/cleaner would then pick up anything associated with MS Word and its files, whose file extensions are .doc (≤ Word 2003) or .docx (Word 2007) files. The un-installed Word file extension relations found in the registry would still exist, but have no program to open should a doc/x file be clicked on.

I suggest that you leave the registry alone. There may be a time in the future after the installation/un-installation of hundreds of programs where this becomes necessary, but then should only be done so under the instructions of someone familiar with registry cleaners. Most important - back up the registry before using a re... Read more
