How to Use Urdu on a PC
By Charlie Brooks,
You may want to type in Urdu -- the official language of Pakistan and a close relative of Hindi -- on your PC if you're from Pakistan or certain parts of India, work as a translator or simply have an interest in the language. Add an Urdu keyboard to your computer's Control Panel and type in Urdu, whether or not you have an Urdu keyboard.
Click "Start," "Control Panel," "Clocks, Languages, Region" and "Regions and Languages."
Click "Keyboards" and "Add." Tick the box next to "Urdu," then click the "OK" button.
Remove your English keyboard by unplugging it from any of the computer's USB ports. Replace it with an your Urdu keyboard, if you have one.
Click the "EN" symbol in the right corner of the Windows Taskbar. Click "UR" from the list of available languages within this section of the screen, which is known as the "Language Bar."
Begin typing on the keys as if they had the same arrangement as an Urdu keyboard, regardless of whether or not you use one.
