How to use On-screen keyboard on Windows 7?
Is your physical keyboard making it difficult for you to type fast? Have you started looking for other options as a solution to your problem, rather than thinking about your own On-Screen Keyboard (OSK) that is already present on your Windows 7-based PC?
It is quite common that without giving a thought to in-built features of our Operating System, we start looking for other solutions. As an Ease of Access tool, Windows has provided its users with On-Screen Keyboard.

The OSK displays a visual keyboard with all the standard keys. You can select keys using the mouse or another pointing device. You can also use a physical single key or group of keys to cycle through the keys on the screen.
