339 Fix On Screen Keyboard Displays After Every Log on [Quick Tip]If the On-screen Keyboard pops up every time you log in to Windows and you want to disable this behavior, this guide is for you. I’ve had this question emailed to me a couple of times before; it wasn’t until it started to happen to me, that I thought it might be useful to put up a guide for the fix.

It’s likely that you brought up the on-screen keyboard on the Windows log-on screen at some point. When you do this, Windows changes its settings to enable the on-screen keyboard each time you log on to your computer (after a restart or log off.) It’s not really much hassle to close the keyboard but, after a number of times, it can be tedious. Luckily, there’s a simple “fix” to get the setting back to default.

Disable Automatic On-screen Keyboard Start

To reset back to the default setting and disable the On-Screen Keyboard from starting at each log on:

1. Click the Start button, type ease, and click Ease of Access Center

2. In the Ease of Access Center, click Use the computer without a mouse of keyboard
