I have received your question regarding the on-screen keyboard.


To disable this, please follow these steps:


  • Click Start and type Ease in the Search box. Hit Enter. This will open the Ease of Access Center
  • Choose Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard
  • UNcheck the box for Use On-Screen Keyboard. Click Save when you are finished.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions on this.


    Thank you!
