keyboard 5 Windows XP comes with a virtual onscreen keyboard that you can use in an emergency if your regular one fails, but only if you have a shortcut to it that you can click with your mouse. This has saved my bacon once already so I thought I’d pass it along. Now I’m not saying its a pleasure to use but in an emergency it will do. To check it out do the following:

  • Click the Start button > Run
  • Type OSK into the Run dialog box.

    On Screen Keyboard

To make a shortcut icon on your desktop to the on–screen keyboard:

  1. Right–click the desktop.
  2. Point to New, and then click Shortcut.
  3. Type osk, click Next.
  4. Type a name for the shortcut, and then click Finish.

That’s it! When you need it, the shortcut to the on–screen keyboard utility is right on your desktop. Now if your keyboard goes kaput you can just click the Keyboard icon and finish what you were working on.
