How to Add Hebrew to Windows

by Kefa Olang

Windows 7 usually uses English for menus, wizards, dialog boxes and other system components; however, you can easily add Hebrew to Windows without installing or downloading any additional system components from Microsoft. Once you enable this change, Windows will change the system language, which includes anything you type, to Hebrew.

Click the "Start" menu and click "Control Panel."

Click the "Change keyboards and other input methods" link in the "Clock, Language and Region" section.

Click the "Formats" tab. Select "Hebrew (Israel)" in the drop-down box. Click "Apply."

Click the "Keyboards and Language" tab and click the "Change keyboards" button. If you want to use Hebrew as the default input language, click on it; otherwise, leave it set to "English."

Click the "Administrative" tab, then the "Change system locale" button. This launches the "Region and Language Settings" dialog box. Select "Hebrew (Israel)" in the "Current system locale" drop-down list. Click "OK." Restart your computer.
