Windows Chinese Features
When Microsoft introduced the first Start menu with Windows 95, they licensed the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" for their advertising. Someone there was apparently oblivious to the irony of using a song that repeatedly screams "You make a grown man cry". But we eventually grew to like the Start menu, and we missed it when it went away.
Windows 10 brings back the missing Start menu, and is far less bipolar than Windows 8. You'll find Windows 10 and 8 Chinese features and setup info here.
Windows 7 will be with us for a long time. Windows Vista introduced many new Chinese features and fonts, but Win 7 is far more stable. I offer Windows 7 and Vista Chinese features and setup info here.
I also offer help with Windows XP, Microsoft Word Phonetic Guide, and more via the menus above.
