[WIN8] how do I display filenames using multibyte characters (Japanese characters)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have some japanese songs in my collection. Some of it are in Japanese characters and the characters display as boxes in Windows Explorer.

On Windows7, they display correctly without installing/setting anything.

I tried adding a Japanese language pack which does nothing. There's no download for the pack. It says it's not available.

thanks!

For me, it would display the "boxes" sometimes on the Windows 8 Release Preview, but just seemed to be a once in a while type of affair. Are you using a final build of Windows 8?
