I'm having a bit of a hard time trying to type hiragana on Windowns. Japanese language is instaled and the IME option is on- I have actually been using it recently, but I must have pressed some key and now I get one hiragana symbol per key I press.

If I type 'K', it will write 'の' whereas what I want is to type 'N' + 'O' to get 'の'.

I guess this is the way some Japanese keyboards work, but I have no clue how to change it back to how it was!

Can anybody help me this this, please?

Thank you so much in advance!

You need to choose romaji input, not kana input.
