Windows 10: Unicodes and language packs Solved

    Unicodes and language packs


    I'm sure a lot of people share my dilemma. The Unicodes I am wanting to use, range from U+1000 to U+109F (plus two extended ranges, AA60AA7F and A9E0A9FF). The Burmese (Myanmar) language pack makes the majority of these characters easy to access, but I'm wanting some that aren't.

    What other options do I have, other than typing "U+1061 Alt-X" to enter these missing codes?

    Several work arounds can be found at http://www.johndcook.com/blog/2008/0...rs-in-windows/
    1. as I suggested above, U+(hexcode) Alt-X
    2. edit a registry key and hold down the Alt key while entering the code on the numeric keypad
    3. download the free utility called UnicodeInput, which pops up with the Alt-+ key

    None of these are useful on my Surface Pro virtual keyboard which is missing both the Alt key numeric keypad

    I found that UnicodeInput didn't play nicely with Win 10. It doesn't seem to be self aware and opened multiple copies of itself.

    A better option could be BabelMap which looks to have plenty of options.

    If you're inclined to work through the issue, tools exist to build your own keyboard to match the unique characters you are looking for.

    Hope this has been of help to someone
