(or making your computer be able to type in Hangul...)
1. Go to Control Panel and click on "Regional and Language Optios".
2. Under "Languages" Tab, check the box for the option "Install East Asian Languages."Click "OK". Windows will install necessary files to your computer. (In an unlikely case, it may ask you to put in the Windows installation CD-ROM.)
3. Click on "Details" in the "Text services and Input Languages" in the same window. This will bring up the window in which you can add Korean to your "Input languages". Click on "Add".
4. In the drop-down menu, choose Korean to be added in your 'input languages'.
5. Click "OK". Windows will ask you to restart your computer. Click "yes".
6. After the installation, you will notice the "Language Bar" on the lower right corner.
7. If you click on the language bar, you will see that Korean is now added to your input language list.
8. Choosing "Korean" in the list will change your language bar to its "Korean" setting.
9. It is now ready for you to use Korean in your Windows programs (Internet Explorer, e-mail, MS Word, etc.) Hangul 'ka' on the bar indicates that you are in Hangul mode--that is, you can type in Korean. If you click on it, it will change to 'A'--meaning that you are in English mode. You can also change between Hangul and English with "Alt" key on your keyboard.
