  • Question

  • when the on screen keyboard is docked to the bottom of the screen, it makes it imposible to change programs if more then 1 window is open without undocking the keyboard first. Is there any way to change this?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by 'docked' since my on-screen keyboard for Win 7 does not offer a docking option. Yiou click the icons in the taskbar to change focus to another app, then to the on-screen keyboard.

  • ben,

    Are you using the built-in Windows 7 keyboard, or is this part of a tablet software suite?

    Hi,

     

    To make the issue clear, please also capture a screenshot:

     

    Capture a screenshot

    ==============

    1)   Press the Print Screen key (PrtScn) on your keyboard.

    2)   Click the "Start" menu, type "mspaint" in the Search Bar and Press Enter.

    3)   In the Paint program, click the "Edit" menu, click "Paste", click the "File" menu, and click "Save".

    4)   The "Save As" dialogue box will appear. Type a file name in the "File name:" box, for example: "screenshot".

    5)   Make sure "JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG;*.JPE;*.JFIF)" is selected in the "Save as type" box, click “Desktop” on the left pane and then click "Save".

     

    Please use Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/) to upload the file and share its URL with us.

     

    Thanks for your efforts.

  • Well that is likely the intention, is for it to be "always on top" as it wouldn't do a whole lot of good if other menus popped up over your keyboard. But you did find a way, so this matter should be all set.

  • i know there is a way, i was just wondering if there is/will be an easier solution so i can keep my keyboard docked such as increasing the taskbars priority somehow relative to the keyboard.
