    onscreen keyboard


    I have a Dell Latitude 7220 tablet using Windows 10. The device is currently in tablet mode and the onscreen keyboard will not deploy. The keyboard icon is visible in the bottom right hand corner, but nothing happens when you click on it. I have gone in the keyboard settings and checked use your device without a physical keyboard--Use on screen keyboard. In addition, the box under ease of access-keyboard-use onscreen keyboard is also checked.

    A floating keyboard is available with the win+ctrl+0 keys, but I am wondering why I cannot have the icon or have an auto pop-up when typing is available. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

    Thank you.

    Your comments sound, to me, like they refer to the Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel that is set up in Settings, Devices, Typing
    Code:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink\TabTip.exe

    The standard Windows one should still be available to you while you track down the problem.
    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\osk.exe
    This can also be called up with WinKey+Ctrl-O [not 0].

    That is probably what you meant by
