Thanks, Ted. I just hope she (he?) sees this before reverting to XP! It's just one of those Windows features which are difficult to find because of lack of the documentation.

Indeed, I do. Thanks a ton, Kari. I didn't know to check off the Microsoft IME box when adding the language. Afaik, I didn't have to do anything special when adding languages under XP.

This is a major relief. I was already looking into installing a new OS just because of this issue. Saves me a lot of extra hassle now. 도와 주셔서 감사합니다~

That was an excellent explanation Kari!

For most languages one does not have to do anything special. For European languages for example, both in Latin and Cyrillic scripts one can get away without invoking IME options. However, I guess for more complicated layouts such as Korean it is important.

It is essential for all Asian languages, basically for every non latin or cyrillic based input language.

The original post is a bit old but since I found this forum while searching how to type Korean in Windows 7 on Google, I think this information could be worth :

I found an up to date video tutorial for that here How to type Korean on Windows 7 - YouTube
This is much easier.

Hope that helps someone!
