    How to get rid of settings icon in onscreen keyboard


    How to get rid of settings icon in onscreen keyboard-screen-keyboard-windows-10-fall-creators-update.png

    Hello,

    Can anybody tell me hot to disable the settings icons in the onscreen keyboard. I use it in a museum with visitors, and they are not allowed to change settings obviously :)

    Thnx,

    Marcel

    Hi, try this:
    How to Disable the Control Panel and Settings Interface in Windows

    I can't tell you if the settings icon/button will disappear- you'll need to try it.

    Your options will be more restricted or you will need to modify the registry if you have Home rather than Pro.

    Note the article is dated 2016, but does apply to Win 10. It's possible there may be some difference now.

    Hi, thank you. This will disable going to the settings.
    But is it also possible to hide the whole button?

    As I said, you'd have to try it- or find a reference to someone who has. Sorry! Not tried.

    I did and it will disable going to the settings. So for now it's better than it ever was :) Thnx for that!
    If someone knows how to hide the button I'll try that.

    Kind regards,

    Just as long as they can't mess it up for you... :)

    Always worth looking in group policy too if you have Pro.. I noted something else related.
