Resize onscreen keyboard on Galaxy Tab 2

Hi,

Does anyone know how to increase the size of the onscreen keyboard on a Galaxy Tab 2 running Android 4.1.1? Im using the default browser.

Id had a look at the keyboard settings but cant find an option to resize the keboard - Id like to stretch it so its easier to type on using both hands when the tablet is in a landscape orientation.

Regards,
Golden

Not an answer per se, but I could find no mention of resizing it. A Guy

Yep, thanks A Guy. Perhaps it can't be done? Lets see if anyone else comes up with something.....

Hi Colin,

You can also try Swype keyboard beta from here: Swype | Text Input for Screens

I saw mention of Swype, but it seems it too cannot be resized, so I didn't mention. Perhaps it is bigger as is?

I guess it is. Never tried it on a tab.

I think it does cover the screen horizontally.
