How to operate Pinyin on the PC Would you let me know how Chinese learners (whose OS is not Chinese version) input and display Pinyin with tone marks on the PC, not on the smart phones ? Thank you in advance.

As far as I know, Pinyin with tone marks can only be inputted as symbol. You can use Microsoft Word to input Pinyin with tone marks to documents. Like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/xdbe0358mddriz8/Symbol.png?dl=0 And you can also display the tone marks of Chinese words by using the Phonetic Guide of Word.

There are a number of ways inputting pinyin with tone. Beside Mimi's method, I can input tone marks with my Chinese inputting application (QQ Pinyin Input Method - QQ拼音输入法). The simplest way: QQ Input provides a feature of '开启v模式 - v mode'. When selected, you can input tone marks by typing 'v8' (a opcode) , i.e. āáǎà. However, the setting menu is in Chinese, if you can't understand, you can add my Wechat: nicedayjohn for instruction. An alternative way is pre-input all vowels into a word file, and copy them when you need. Some input tools (Such as QQ pinyin) can provide an on-screen keyboard by which you can input vowels. However this is a bit complicated and not recommended.
