    I saw your post with a screenshot, replied to it and now it seems to be gone?

    But OK, I understand your issue better now. I am at work and have limited time now, I will check if I can find something later today when home.

    Just in case
    Click image for larger version
    from top to bottom
    1. English input with English keyboard (rigth keyboard, but can only type in English)
    2. English input with Japanese keyboard (wrong keyboard, and can only type in English)
    3. Japanese input with Japanese keyboard (can type in Japanese, but wrong keyboard)
    4. Korean input with Korean keyboard (not the issue right now)

    and what I need is:
    Japanese input with English keyboard

    OK, I have tested this now. I created a new user account and changed it to use Japanese display language. I have no problems typing in Japanese and Latin characters when display language is English, and no problems typing both Latin and Japanese characters when display language is Japanese.

    Let's check you are doing it correctly.

    Japanese display language, Latin (English) keyboard layout installed:

    You toggle Japanese / Latin character set by clicking the marked character in language bar. Clicking the A system switches to Japanese character set and the character A in language bar switches to this Japanese character to indicate you are now using Japanese character set. In other words, the symbol shows which character set the system is currently using, clicking it toggles between the two character sets:

    Right clicking the IME symbol gives this menu (you might understand it a bit better than me ):

    As I said, I could type with Japanese or Latin characters without issues (though not understanding what I was typing...).

    Thank you for testing this on your system.
    Let me ask you one question: when you change to Japanese IME, and you type [shift + 2], what character do you get?

    Takes a moment or two, uninstalled Japanese already and deleted the user account I had for testing. Let me do it again, give me half an hour or so.

    OK.

    Using Japanese as Display Language and Japanese IME Input Language, I get the @ sign when pressing SHIFT + 2:

    Pressing SPACE after the @ opens a context menu instead of adding a space:

    Any help?

    Yes, that means you probably have [Japanese input system] + [English keyboard layout]
    On my system, when I press shift + 2, I get ["], meaning that I have
    [Japanese input system] + [Japanese keyboard layout].
    By the way, can you change to a Japanese keyboard layout on your system if you wanted? Meaning when you press shift + 2 you would get a ["] instead of a [@]

    Japanese layout as well as EN-US gives the @ sign. Changing to EN-UK or my Finnish layout gives the quotation mark ".

    On your system, do you get a different window than mine?

    I mean, do you have the option to add different keyboard layouts "under" Japanese IME?

    No matter what I do, no matter what combination of input languages and keyboard layouts I try, I always get an ["] when pressing shift + 2.
    I must be missing something very basic here.

    When you type in Japanese, now you get a [@] after pressing shift + 2.
    Without changing back to EN-UK or your Finnish layout, can you get a ["] after pressing shift + 2?
