Windows 7: Onscreen Keyboard on Logon Screen

Onscreen Keyboard on Logon Screen

Hello,

Is there a way to automatically load the onscreen keyboard on the logon screen?

Thanks!

Try this.

1. Go to All Programs > Accessories > Ease of access > right click on OnScreen keyboard > SendTo Desktop. That gives you a shortcut on the desktop.
2. Start > type shell:startup > hit Enter. Now drag the shortcut from 1. into the startup folder. Close the folder.

Theoretically the OnScreen keyboard should be started when you load Windows 7. Have not tried it yet with the keyboard, but with many other applications that always worked.

PS: just tried it out. It works.

It doesn't work for me.

Does it appear BEFORE you logon?

I don't know. I have an automatic logon. But I doubt it. Just try it.

That will be difficult to achieve because you need the startup programs (which are the first to load). But for that you have to be logged on.
