* From Start -> Settings -> Control Panel

* Double-click Regional and Language Options

* Click on the Languages tab

- If "Install files for East Asian languages" under "Supplemental language support" section is checked, then you can skip to the step II.

- If the box is NOT checked, you need check on the box of "Install files for East Asian Languages", then click Apply button to do the install.

You may need your Windows XP CD. Installing these files will allow you to use Chinese, Japanese, and Korean in your computer

Step II - Add Services for Typing Chinese

* After East Asian Languages pack is installed, click "Details" button under the Languages tab of Regional and Language Options.

* On the Settings tab of the new window, Click Add.

* In the "Input language" list, select Chinese (Taiwan) for traditional Chinese characters or Chinese (PRC) for simplified characters. You can add other input languages as well

After this step, your settings configuration should look like the screen shot displayed on this page:

Step III - Use Your Keyboard to Type Chinese Characters

After installing East Asian support and adding services for Chinese, you are ready to input Chinese into your word-processor or email programs.

* On your Toolbar at the right hand side, you should see a language bar, letters "EN" for English, "CH" for Chinese

* Click this button to change languages or use ALT+SHIFT key combination to switch between languages.

- By switching to the Chinese setting, you can now type Chinese characters in most software applications and browses using Pinyin and accent numbers(1-4).

- Use the ARROW KEYS to toggle between characters until you find the character you need.

- To temporarily switch between typing Chinese and English, you can simply press the SHIFT key on your keyboard.
