I thought you needed Windows 7 ultimate to be able to get the Japanese Language Pack?

That's a misbelief. You need Ultimate to get the language pack for the User Interface (or display language as it is officially referred to). You don't need the Ultimate edition to be able to switch locales.

Btw, that's how I was able to switch from Hungarian to English while making the tutorial. ^__^

Will I turn Japanese from doing this?

Possibly. However the part of you that comes up with smart ass comments should remain unchanged. :P

On a more serious note, this is a very valuable post. If only more people would actually read posts like this i'm pretty sure it would cut help requests by a good margin. Good post.

When you switch to Japanese mode, all the backslashes are changed to Yen symbols. That's one and (as far as I know) the only side-effect of switching locales.

No, you can't. Unless you reinstall the operation system itself.
