On-Screen Keyboard (Win 7 Premium 32 bit)

Hi,
I am disabled but find the on-screen keyboard VERY usefull.
Does anyone know how to enable some transparency with out installing other software? Maybe a reg tweak or very noninvasive customizer program?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated
Thank You

Feel the Wheel / Nattyware

Feel the Wheel (Feewhee) is a small free program which consists of one 6.5 KB file with no GUI.

May I ask how you did this? I can make any window transparent, but not the on-screen keyboard. I think it has to do with the fact the OSK is never on top (does not have the focus)?

That is not quite true. To get it in focus, you just need to click on the titlebar of the application window or click it's icon in taskbar.

I tried that, but if I then hold the shift key and roll the scroll wheel, nothing happens... Other windows do get transparent, not the OSK.

Ok, we are talking about Microsoft Windows 7 On-Screen Keyboard (in Aero theme). I start the program first, then I start OSK. I get OSK window in focus by clicking inside letter O in "On-Screen" word, then I hold Shift key and turn mouse wheel down. It works.

Yes, I'm using Windows 7 too (Aero theme). I tried your procedure, but no luck: the OSK does not get transparent. I can see in the OSK the shift key is pressed, the window has the focus, but nothing happens when I roll the wheel of my mouse. All other windows do get transparent (Firefox, Windows Live Mail, calculator etc.). Strange...

Would the on screen keyboard provide any protection from keyloggers, or will it just do the exact same function as the normal keyboard and therefore provide no protection what so ever?
