    on screen keyboard


    Recently my poor old wireless keyboard bit the dust pretty much ending that session of win 10.
    After visiting my local walmart and on my way home I thought about the onscreen keyboard on my nextbook
    2in1. Of course it was in tablet mode at the time.
    Is there a way to bring it up outside of tablet mode on my desktop?

    :)

    Start menu -choose Settings (the gear icon)

    Select Update & Security, and then select Troubleshoot.

    Find Keyboard on the list.
