    When you right click on the address bar on a web page an option appears which says: "Open IME". What does this mean? Thanks.

    Make that 87,000 divided by, what, 3, 4, 5... Also, your thread has only had 50-some views, and that's already after your 2nd post.

    In a nutshell, the Global IME allows you to switch among languages and enter hieroglyphic Asian language text on a paltry 105-key Western keyboard.

    Unless your system actually has at least one of those Language Packs installed, that "Open IME" right-click context menu command (and its follow-up, "Close IME") will do nothing. It's all one big tease. You may safely disregard it.
