    Windows 10 - On-Screen Keyboard turned off, pops up on Start Screen?


    Hey everybody.

    Recently I installed a graphic tablet's driver, and have since had the on-screen keyboard appear on boot, then promptly disappear after the start screen.

    This morning, I uninstalled the drivers in hope that it would fix my problem. It was for naught, though. My only guess is that Windows thinks that I have a touch-enabled device connected, hence giving me the on-screen keyboard. Whether that is the case or not, I do not know.

    With the drivers uninstalled, I don't know what else I could try beside running CCleaner to clean up temporary files.

    Any suggestions? Thanks all,
    Frank.

    Hi Frank. When does the keyboard first show up? Before the lock screen, on the lock screen, etc? I would look for any folders that may have been created for the tablet and delete them. Ccleaner might be of help. Could also do a manual search of the registry, searching on the name of the tablet. Right click on taskbar and make sure that Show touch keyboard is not selected. Also: Settings>Ease of Access>Keyboard>On-Sreen Keyboard ​is not selected.

    My apologies for the late response. On the login screen, after pressing a key to enter my password, the keyboard appears. I just had a new experience, though. I heard the disconnect sound in the background a few times, and the keyboard flickered on and off. I will take a look for the tablet folder now. As for the registry search, it installed under a fairly generic name, so I'm not sure I can find it. As for CCleaner, it did not help. The options you mentioned are also off. Perhaps it's a driver problem not connected to the tablet? Since it flickers when I hear the disconnect sound.

    Disregard the previous paragraph. As per your suggestion, I found a leftover folder and deleted it, which resolved the problem. Thanks a ton!
