    Turn On or Off Automatically Show Touch Keyboard when No Keyboard Attached in Windows 10


    You can use different keyboards with Windows to fit your needs. The most common is a physical, external keyboard that you plug into your PC. Windows 10 includes a touch keyboard for PCs.

    If youre using a tablet, or if your PC is in tablet mode, the touch keyboard will automatically open when you need it. Just tap where youd like to enter text and the keyboard will pop up, or press the touch keyboard button on the taskbar.

    If you have a touch screen, then this tutorial will show you how to turn on or off automatically showing the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there's no keyboard attached for your account in Windows 10.

    This tutorial will not work for you if you do not have a touch screen.

    Turn On or Off Automatically Show Touch Keyboard in Windows 10

    Add the Touch Keyboard Icon to the Action Center

    Hi Doug,



    Adding the touch keyboard on the items in Action Center is currently not available in Windows 10. However, you can change the settings to automatically show the touch keyboard when you use the device in tablet mode. If you'd like to do this, you can
    follow these steps:

    • Click on Start.
    • Open Settings.
    • Select Devices.
    • Go to Typing.
    • Under Touch keyboard settings, switch on Automatically show the touch keyboard in windowed apps when there’s no keyboard attached to your device.

    If you want to provide a feedback or suggestion to Microsoft to have the touch keyboard available in Action Center, you can post it
    here.

    Let us know if the suggestion above works for you.

    Keep us posted.
