Best app for typing in other languages on desktop (windows)

Not sure if there is already a discussion for this (if there is then I couldn't find it), but can anyone suggest an app that is available on windows that will allow me to easily type in Japanese?

Windows already has something called an IME (Input Method Editor). You will need to install it and get used to using it. Click here for more info


I use:


but they have all the other language keyboards as well. I just use mine to grab characters so I don't need to fully convert my keyboard.


Have you tried Google's Japanese IME? https://www.google.co.jp/ime/ I find it better than the default one which comes with Windows.
