There are several different ways to type in Chinese. Most common one is Pinyin, but there are others include Wubi, Chuanpin...etc. In order to type in Chinese, the first thing to do is enable/install the Asian Language Pack. To get started:

1)Control Panel

2)Regional and Language Options

3)Languages

4)Check the box for Install East Asian Languages under Supplemental language support. Then click Apply and OK.


Once the language files have been installed, click on the Details, button under Text services and input languages. You get the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box > Then click on the Add After you have clicked the Add, you get the Add Input Language dialogue box. Choose Chinese (PRC) from the drop-down list under Input Language, check the Keyboard Layout / IME button, and then pick Chinese (Simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0. Then click OK.


You are now back to the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box. Note that under Chinese (PRC) /Keyboard, Chinese (Simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0 is now listed. Click Apply and then OK.


After you have installed Chinese (Simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0, you may want to fine tune its properties. To do this

1)first select Chinese (Simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0 under Installed services in the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box。

2)Then click on Properties to bring up the Properties dialog box for Microsoft Pinyin 3.0.


Microsoft Pinyin 3.0 allows toggling between traditional and simplified Chinese input, and so if you want to be able to write both traditional and simplified characters and you are comfortable with Pinyin romanization, you may not need to install a traditional Chinese input option additionally.
