Write In Korean on Windows 7

7. Click Apply > OK > OK to close the pop-up windows.

The language bar icon will now appear in the taskbar.

It will show the default input method of Windows by default, for example EN (English).

Test It!

You can type in Korean as soon as the input method is enabled. To do this, open a word-processing program like WordPad, Notepad or Microsoft Word. An internet browser will do as well.

Now, since the language bar is set to the primary language of Windows, you must switch it to Korean first. It’s easy. Just press the Left ALT key + Shift, or click the language icon in the taskbar, then select KO (Korean). The Korean language bar will appear after which.

Just a quick introduction, the letter A icon Korean Language Bar - English Input Method Activated beside the globe icon represents the English keyboard layout. You can’t type yet in Korean if it is active. You must click it to switch to Hangul.

Korean keyboard layout is represented by 가 icon Korean Language Bar - Hangul Input Method Activated which appears after clicking on the A icon. Once enabled, press any letter key on the keyboard, and the equivalent Hangul alphabet for that key will show on screen.

For Korean keyboard users, it’s easy to switch from English to Korean input method, or vice versa, by pressing the 한/영 key beside the space bar.

    Thank you Jerry! I was looking around for half an hour, but this is the first place that tells me about the “A” icon. (No surprise that the Microsoft site didn’t help either, right?)

     Is there a way to do this for Windows 7 Professional? I don’t have a choose a display language option. Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know, Windows Professional is limited to just one language. Only Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise can have multiple languages installed.

    “b. Click the keyboard Icon beside KO and choose Microsoft EMI , c. Click the Letter A icon and change it to 가”

    제가 컴퓨터 고치기 전엔 right alt button 만 눌르면 한글로 바뀌었는데 이젠 left alt+shift 그담에 또 language bar button 을 눌러서 A를 가 로 바꿔야 한글이 써져요… 전처럼 다시 alt 만 눌러서 바꾸는 방법 없어요??

    Control Panel\Clock, Language, and Region 에서 Change Keyboard or other input methods 누르신다음 change keyboards누르신후에 맨위에 언어가 Korean으로 설정되었어야되요. 그리고 그냥 Korean이 아니라 Korean Microsoft IME로 설정하시면 됩니다^^
