The on-screen keyboard seems to be misbehaving on a growing number of Windows 10 desktop PCs. It appears to be due to a inconsistency between its “new” and traditional Control Panel settings. The on-screen keyboard is switched off in Windows 10’s “new” settings, but enabled in the Control Panel at the same time. To resolve the issue:


  • Right click the Start menu
  • Click Control Panel
  • Change the view to “Small icons” (top right)
  • Click Ease of Access Centre
  • Click Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard
  • Un-check Use On-Screen Keyboard
  • Click OK
