  1. Why do I need ctfmon.exe running?


    I recently had to format my os drive and start over. Like always I go into msconfig and other startup areas and make the os as light as I can. Usually consists of googling every service and app I'm not sure of to see if I can remove or stop it from running. There are some things I leave on and then close if I'm going to be running games. Something I never saw before on my taskman was ctf loader. I had always stopped it in the beginning and didn't have to end the task. This time it prevented me from using the search bar and being able to bring the password promo up on the login screen via keybo

    :)

    ctfmon

    Hello,

    Ctfmon is the Microsoft process that controls Alternative User Input and the Office Language bar. It’s how you can control the computer via speech or a pen tablet, or using the onscreen keyboard inputs for asian languages. If you are using any of the mentioned
    tasks, you should leave it enabled. Since you've already tried removing it at the task manager, we suggest that you follow the steps below to disable ctfmon.exe:

    • Open Settings by clicking the Windows icon.
    • At the Settings window, type in Administrative tools and select it.
    • At the Administrative tools window, click Services.
    • At the services window, look for Touch Keyboard and Handwriting panel service, set this to disabled and stop the service. This will disable the ability to use the onscreen keyboard.

    Let us know the results.
