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.

By default, the touch keyboard will capitalize the first letter of each sentence.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off capitalize the first letter of each sentence while using the touch keyboard for your account in Windows 10.
Note   Note
Capitalize the first letter of each sentence will not work while using the standard keyboard layout option on the the touch keyboard.

If you're using a non-touch PC (ex: desktop), you could still use the touch keyboard if you like, but you would have to use your pointer to click on the keys instead of touching/tapping them.
