Windows 10 is offered in more languages than any of its predecessors. That’s owing to most computer users using Windows as their go-to operating system.

Alongwith those languages, Windows also offers localised keyboards to facilitate typing for users in their local languages. You can also choose a language for apps and websites, for speech recognition, your regional format and a display language for Windows as well. 

However, you can only choose one display language for Windows 10 Home. So, unless you’re on the Pro and Enterprise versions, pick the right display language when installing Windows. Changing the display language later can be a bit of a task too. 

In this article, we’ll talk about how you can add a Chinese keyboard to your Windows 10 installation.

Note that you can use this same method to add any other language keyboard in Windows 10 as well.
