Re: Query: Typing Traditional Chinese in Windows 7

I just tried the Microsoft language bar for simplified (PRC) pinyin, and see at bottom right on my screen the options for selecting my input languages--on this laptop, English, Microsoft pinyin and Google Chinese. When I choose Microsoft (Windows 10) I see I can toggle between Chinese, when there's a Zhong and a pin on the screen, and English when ENG shows up, using the Windows key+space bar. But I see no option for switching to traditional. Am I missing something?
