    How do I resize the on-screen keyboard in Wondows 10?


    I'd like to reduce size of the on-screen keyboard since it covers nearly half the screen when it pops up and often sits right on top of the field I'm trying to type into. I've looked around on the web and there seems to be a persistent idea that you can click and drag the corner to resize it (for instance here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings-winpc/resizing-the-on-screen-keyboard-also-is-there-an/d0b9f07a-36e9-437a-b21e-79a6dc5e4502). That would be nice, but I can't do it -- the corners don't "select".

    :)
