I write Chinese with traditional characters as they are used in Taiwan, using Microsoft Pinyin IME on Windows 10. This mostly works fine, but sometimes Windows seems dead set on giving me a variant of a character that I don't want.
Examples: I'm trying to type 週 but I get 周, I want 掛 but get 挂, I want 裡 and get 裏. In the first two cases I can get to the desired character by scrolling several pages in the IME candidates (though that's obviously annoying), in the last case I couldn't get it at all.
My keyboard is set to “Chinese (simplified, China)” but in the IME options I selected traditional characters. I didn't set it directly to “Chinese (traditional, Taiwan)”, because I couldn't figure out how to use Pinyin that way.
Any advice on what I might do different? Is there some setting to teach Windows what I want?
