If you want to be able to read Russian language unicode (characters) on your Windows XP computer, you will need to download and install an official Microsoft Russian language pack. This utility allows your computer to display Russian language characters on screen. The installation of this language pack can be done using tools native to all releases of the Windows XP operating system.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start."

  2. 2

    Click "Settings."

  3. 3

    Click "Control Panel."

  4. 4

    Click "Regional and Language Options." Click the tab at the top of the window labelled "Languages."

  5. 5

    Click "Details." From the "Details" window, click the "Add" button. Select "Russian" from the "Input Language" drop-down menu and click the "OK" button. This will close out of the window and return you to the "Regional and Language Options" window. Click "Apply" to install the Russian language pack onto your Windows XP computer. Now, whenever Russian characters are displayed on screen, they will be displayed properly as opposed to appearing as unrecognisable characters.
