    How do i change the language direction writing ?


    I have windows 8.1 pro.
    When I type here now in this forum a message in English it's starting like it should be from left to right.

    But if I will change here the language to Hebrew(My home language) it will keep writing from left to right but it should be from right to left.
    In another forum when I start a new message and type in English it's starting writing at the right side and move left.
    And I don't have any option to change the write direction I did with the mouse right click but no option.

    Is there any way to make that when I change the language between English and Hebrew it will change the direction of writing automatic and will move to the beginning of the line automatic ? So I will not need to change and set it all the time each time.

    For example in this screenshot it's not this forum and there when I type in English for example hello world so the first letter H was first when typing it on the right end side of the line and when I keep typing the rest it's pushing the other letters to the left. When it should all start from the beginning to type from the left to right.

Title says it all. Don't confuse it with changing the language, but customizing language names. Don't ask me why. I don't mind hardcoding or doing 'hard' stuff. Just give me some directions if you think it's possible. Thanks.
