How to Add Regional Language Pack Keyboard Typing Support in Windows 10 Malayalam Typing

How to Add Regional Language Pack Keyboard Typing Support in Windows 10. Windows 10 makes it easy to use regional languages.

In this “How to” post, I will walk through adding regional language support in Windows 10. Microsoft has made it very easy. I’m trying to share my experience with Windows 10 Malayalam language in this post.

Check out the Windows 10 you use before trying regional languages like Malayalam.

You can install your regional language support on a Windows 10 machine in 5 minutes. I would like to know about other features of Windows 10; refer to the previous post, “Latest Features Included in Windows 10 New Build.”

In this post, I’ll use Malayalam, my regional language and mother tongue, as an example. 1) Go to settings options from the Windows 10 start menu.

6) Log off and log back; this will automatically set the default language as Malayalam. Otherwise, follow the below steps. I don’t have a Regional language keyboard; I use the virtual keyboard, which is in-build in Windows 10. Click or Tap the virtual keyboard icon in the taskbar.

7) Once you launch the virtual keyboard,  select Malayalam Keyboard !

8) Once you select the Malayalam Keyboard, as mentioned in step 7, you can see the Malayalam keyboard. Now, start using this keyboard.

9) I tried Cortana (rather than search). I know it’s supported, but I just wanted to try. In the following picture, you can use the Malayalam keyboard to type in Windows 10 (Windows 10 Malayalam language).

However, the default Windows commands won’t work in this. This is only for typing Malayalam letters on Windows 10 machines.

    • എവിടെയാ ടൈപ്പ് ചെയ്യുന്നേ
      മലയാളം കീബോര്ഡ് ട്രൈ ചെയ്തോ ? അതോ ഇംഗ്ലീഷ് കീബോര്ഡ് ആണോ ട്രൈ ചെയ്തതെ

  6. മാഷെ,
    എനിക്കു മലയാളം ടൈപ്പു ചെയ്യാന്‍ പറ്റുന്നുണ്ട് പക്ഷെ മലയാളം ഫോണ്ട് ഒന്നും തന്നെ സപ്പോറ്ട് ചെയ്യുന്നില്ല എന്നതാണ്‍. വെര്‍ഡിലൊ ഇലസ്റ്റ്രേറ്ററിലൊ ഒന്നിലും സപ്പോറ്ട് ചെയ്യുന്നില്ല. വിന്ഡോസ് 10 ആണ്‍. ഇത് വിന്ഡോസിന്‍റെ പ്രൊബ്ലെം ആണോ. ഒരു സൊല്യുഷന്‍ പറഞഞു തരാമോ?

    • അതെ എനിക്കെ അറിയാം കുറച്ചെ ബുദ്ധി മുട്ട് ആണ് ടൈപ്പ് ചെയ്യാൻ മലയാളം കീബോര്ഡ് ഇല്ലെങ്കിൽ നല്ല പ്രശ്നമാണ്
      സൊല്യൂഷൻ അറിയില്ല

      • 20 ല്‍ കൂടുതല്‍ ഫോണ്ട്സ് already Install ചെയ്തിട്ടുണ്ട്. പക്ഷെ Karthika എന്നൊരു ഫൊണ്ട് അല്ലാതെ മറ്റൊന്നും സെലക്റ്റ് ആവില്ല. ഞാന്‍ പല keyboard ഉം try ചെയ്തു നോക്കി. അതുകൊണ്ട് ഒന്നും ഫോണ്ട് സപ്പോര്‍ട് ചെയ്യുന്നില്ല.

    • എനിക്കും കാർത്തിക ഫോണ്ട് മാത്രം ആണ് ഉപയോഗിക്കുവാൻ പറ്റുന്നത്. ML, FML ഫോണ്ടുകൾ എല്ലാം ഡൌൺലോഡ് ചെയ്തു ഇൻസ്റ്റാൾ ചെയ്തു നോക്കി. പക്ഷെ കോംപ്ലക്സ് സ്ക്രിപ്റ്റ് ഫോണ്ടുകളായ കാർത്തിക, മീര, ജനമലയാളം, നോട്ടോ സാൻസ് മലയാളം എന്നിവ മാത്രമേ ഉപയോഗിക്കാൻ പറ്റുന്നുള്ളു.. പഠിച്ച പണി 18 ട്ടും നോക്കി. വല്ല പോംവഴി ഉണ്ടോ? എന്താണ് ശെരിക്കും ഇഷ്യൂ ?

  7. Sir,
    Am trying to see a movie with malaylam subtitles and the characters are kind of charred or appearing in some strange way.
    After some research, understood I need to select Malayalam as the language for non unicode programmes in windows control panel – Regional – Admin part.
    However, in the drop down list there is no Malayalam to be selected.
    Please could you advise, how I can add Malayalam to this list.
    I am not looking to type in Malayalam or anything. Very rarely, for some international movies, only Malayalam subs are available and I need this.
    Thank you.
    B regards
    Rajesh

  8. ഹൈ,
    ഞാൻ ഇപ്പോൾ ഉപയോഗിച്ചിരിക്കുന്നത് വിൻഡോസിൻറെ ഓൺസ്ക്രീൻ കീബോർഡ് ഉപയോഗിച്ചുള്ള ടൈപ്പിംഗ് ആണ്.
    1. Ramante -രാമൻറെ ഇത് അത്ര ശരിയല്ലെന്നു തോന്നുന്നു
