Oh, then I think something went wrong when enabling the feature using Regedit (as described in the question). I just tested on a Win 7 system without the feature enabled, and it behaves the way you describe.

Jan29 comment How to insert any Unicode character using the Unicode HEX Code on Windows (Word/Notepad/Web Broser URL or input field/other apps)? Oh, you need to press the (numpad) “+” key when entering Alt + 2 2 0 0 (the notations are often confusing, since often people use the “+” sign to mean “and then press...” instead of indicating an actual “+” keypress). Jan29 comment How to insert any Unicode character using the Unicode HEX Code on Windows (Word/Notepad/Web Broser URL or input field/other apps)? I cannot imagine any other reason than the localization. I wonder why any localization would break this functionality, but maybe you can try with a different keyboard layout (not that I’d expect much that to affect these issues).

Jan29 comment How to insert any Unicode character using the Unicode HEX Code on Windows (Word/Notepad/Web Broser URL or input field/other apps)? @JohnSonderson, I think the problem is that you release the Alt key too early: it should be kept pressed down until you have typed the Unicode number.

Jan25 comment How do I typeset equations in Word as pretty as LaTeX does? Re your first comment: right, sorry for the confusion. The \int command just inserts the INTEGRAL character. The graphic UI tools are needed to produce a conventional large integral symbol. Jan25 revised How do I typeset equations in Word as pretty as LaTeX does? As per comment. Jan25 answered How do I typeset equations in Word as pretty as LaTeX does? Jan25 comment How do I typeset equations in Word as pretty as LaTeX does? If you have an equation set to “inline mode”, the dropdown shows an option “Change to Display”. But I now see that this wasn’t the problem here. Jan25 comment How do I typeset equations in Word as pretty as LaTeX does? What exactly is “terrible” in Word rendering of the equation? If you want a larger integral sign, just change the equation to display mode.
