Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) Hanyu Pinyin keyboard is not functioning


I desperately need to type traditional Chinese with hanyu pinyin (not bopomofo) keyboard. Previously, I had no problem at all (with older version of Windows), but it seems that this function no longer working in Windows 10.

I installed the Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) language pack and downloaded all Traditional Chinese IME required. Next, I've tried so many times to change the preferred keyboard layout to Hanyu Pinyin, but it didn't work at all (still showing bopomofo when I type). I've also tried the Chinese (Traditional, Hongkong SAR) language pack and the result was exactly the same.

I'm fully aware that I could also type traditional Chinese with Chinese (Simplified, China) language pack. However, it still has some problems since not all the traditional characters are available. For example, I can't find li (裡) character and it keep suggesting the other li (裏) that is not really for common use. 

Any suggestion to fix this problem? 

Thank you so much.

Hi LestariM, I am Dexter, an Independent Advisor, here to help you.

Glad that you're using Chinese, cause I'm a Chinese.

I assume that you're using the Windows built-in IME for typing Chinese, so I would like to suggest you have a try with the most popular Chinese input method in China, it's named Sogou Pinyin(搜狗拼音). Due to the GBK charset of it, you could type whether Simplified or Traditional Chinese.

Here's the official website:

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let me know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.
