How to Reset Touch Keyboard Default Open Position in Windows 10

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

This tutorial will show you how to reset the open position on screen of the Touch Keyboard to default on the main display for your account in Windows 10.

This will not affect a docked Touch Keyboard.
