You can use different keyboards with Windows to fit your needs. The most common is a physical, external hardware keyboard that you plug into your PC. Windows 10 includes a touch keyboard for PCs.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, you will now see text suggestions to select from by default while typing on the touch keyboard.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off autocorrect misspelled words as you type on the touch keyboard when text suggestions are available for your account in Windows 10.
