Get An Onscreen Keyboard In Vista

Windows Vista comes with a virtual onscreen keyboard that you can use in an emergency if your regular one fails, but only if you have a shortcut to it that you can click with your mouse. This has saved my bacon once already so I thought I’d pass it along. Now I’m not saying its a pleasure to use but in an emergency it will do.

Click the Start Orb and type OSK into the Start menu’s Search box.

At the top of the screen you will see the results of the search. Right click OSK under Programs and drag it to your Desktop. You can rename if you like by right clicking the icon and choosing rename. Now if your keyboard goes kaput you can just click the Keyboard icon and finish what you were working on.
