Nepali Unicode for Windows 7

The inbuilt support for Nepali language input was started from Windows Vista onwards, and now it’s continued in Windows 7 too, while back to XP age people had to use other Unicode Converter tools to use Nepali Unicode in Windows. The use of On-Screen Keyboard makes the use of Nepali Language as a primary or just an input language easy in Windows 7.

While the Nepali version of Windows 7 (Windows 7 Nepali Language Interface Pack LIP) has not yet been released by Microsoft Nepal (Unlimited Technologies) in which Nepali would be the default operating language of choice, we can still use Nepali language keyboard in Windows 7 having other OS languages. So let us start installing and activating Nepali Unicode System.

I am assuming that you all have downloaded the unicode software package. So shall we start??

Go to the Control Panel >> Region and Language Settings

On Region and Language wizard select Keyboards and Languages tab.

To change your keyboard or input language to Nepali, click Change Keyboards, you should see the Text Services and Input Languages screen.

Click Add to install Nepali Language in Windows 7. (check on the Default input language drop down menu if it has been already enabled)

Now, on Add Input Language box select Nepali (Nepal) >> Keyboard Nepali, and Ink Correction (optional – leave it unchecked if you don’t want it) and click OK.

Now you shall be taken to Text Services and Input Languages screen again where you should apply the settings. Click OK and you are ready with Nepali (Nepal) Keyboard in Windows 7.

To get started with Nepali Keyboard, select the NE (Nepali – Nepal) from the Language bar near the hidden icons or Action Centers at right corner of the Taskbar.

You can select the language whenever you want, eg writing emails in Nepali, or updating your Facebook profile in Nepali or even searching Google in Nepali language. But you might not get a search result if you enter सहयता in Search Help box of Windows Help and Support center. So, I strongly recommend you to learn to use Nepali Unicode keystrokes before you make Nepali as the default input language in Windows 7.

In Short, follow these steps:
1. go to "control panel"
2. click on "Clock, Language & Region"
3. click on "Region & Language"
4. go to "Keyboards and Languages"
5. Click on "Change Keyboards"
6. Click on "Add"
7. Then Select "Nepali(Nepal)"
8. Then Check on "Nepali"
8. Then Click "OK"
