Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.
On Screen Keyboard Bringing Up Last Used Program

Hi all am new here so hope you can help and I can give help in future. as in title, I use on screen keyboard a bit and have the problem that when I have multiple programs running when I click on the task bar to bring up keyboard (already running) it brings up the last program I was using before the one I am currently on. E.g. may be using windows live mail and then click over to IE and then click on task-bar to bring up on screen keyboard and it will come up ok but also re-maximize or bring to top windows live mail.

Please ask for any more info you need and Ty for any help.

Welcome to Seven Forums BigRig. I have seen this complaint before I am sure, but am uncertain if a solution was ever found. I can suggest trying a Clean Start to see if the problem still occurs:

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

If no help, you might try making a shortcut via this tutorial:
