After buying a computer with Windows installed, I found that whenever I tried to type in Korean on Internet sites, I could not. When I tried to type in Korean, the results were a hodgepodge of Korean and English letters being displayed on the monitor.

However, I was using Internet Explorer at the time.

But... when I used Edge as the browser, I was able to type correctly in Hangul on Internet sites.

I believe that the problem has been solved but wanted to pass this info on.

I'm curious as to how this solves the issue with Internet Explorer. Changing to another browser does not solve the issue, it bypasses it.

Cookiegal, thanks for your reply. By "Solved," I meant that it was solved in my case by using Edge as a "workaround." I posted the problem and the solution that I found here so that other people, if they have experienced the same problem, might use the solution that I found to be able to type in Korean (or maybe another non-English language) on the Internet. I did pose the problem to Microsoft through a forum, but the solution that was suggested didn't work. Thanks again for your reply, and if anyone knows how to really solve the problem with IE, kudos to them. (I really don't know why typing in Korean didn't work on IE because I believe that Edge is another Microsoft browser and I would think that both should work.)

Yes, I understand but the purpose of the "solved" button is so that other users who have the same issue may find the solution to their problem, not a workaround.

Usually you would have to download and install a language pack for Internet Explorer. I'm not familiar with Edge so don't know why it works, perhaps they are already installed for that browser.

Cookiegal, thanks again for your reply. I have the Microsoft Korean IME downloaded on my computer but when I click on "Korean Microsoft IME" In Internet Explorer, what is produced is a gibberish of Korean and English letters. And, when I click on "Korean Microsoft IME" in Edge, proper Korean is produced. Anyway, thank again for your replies and for your thoughts.
