Windows 7: On screen keyboard icon shortcut not showing next to text input fields

On screen keyboard icon shortcut not showing next to text input fields

I enabled PC Tablet Support in the windows features section of windows 7, but i still can't get windows to pop up that on screen keyboard icon that usually displays next to any type of data input fields.

My windows is NOT installed on a tablet pc, but i recently connected a touch screen to my desktop and am hoping to get the same sort of functionality like my tablet edition of xp had.

Anyone know how to make that shortcut icon appear again?

Registry: Text Services and Input Languages - Add Keyboard?
Using Windows 7, I would like to add keyboard under English (United States). Where is the registry key? I know in Windows XP it's quite simple. It's by referring to .IME files. But there is no "IME File" key in Windows 7 Registry.
