Urdu being the national language of Pakistan, so all like to write it in easy way.A difficult method of writing urdu is with Inpage Urdu Software or by using any other third party software. But what if we get the option to write urdu language right on our Windows just as we write English or any other language.

Microsoft has released the tension from you. Now you could easily download Urdu Language Pack from the official Microsoft website and enjoy Urdu-English switching with one button press.

Steps to Write Urdu in Windows 7:

First of all, you will have to download Urdu Language Pack from Microsoft Official website.

Click here to go to the download page.

Go to the bottom of the page. You have the following two Language Packs to download.

  • LIP_ur-PK-64bit.mlc
  • LIP_ur-PK-32bit.mlc

Enabling Phonetic Keyboard to Write with Ease:
