Every now and then I receive messages asking me how to launch the OnScreen Keyboard on Windows machines that don’t have a touch screen.
There are several ways to activate the OnScreen Keyboard, but my favorite method is by simply clicking a desktop shortcut.
If you’d like to create a shortcut to the OnScreen Keyboard on your own computer, just follow the steps below:
1 – Right-click on the Desktop and select New>Shortcut from the drop-down menu.
2 – Copy and paste the following line into the “Location” field:
3 – Click Next.
4 – Type (or copy and paste) the following into the “Name” field:
5 – Click Finish.
That’s all there is to it. From now on you’ll be able to quickly launch your PC’s OnScreen Keyboard simply by clicking the shortcut!
