Click "Start On-Screen Keyboard." The virtual keyboard will appear on the screen.

Step 4

Click the Ease of Access window to bring it to the foreground. Under "Explore all settings," click "Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard."

Step 5

Click "Use On-Screen Keyboard" to launch the virtual keyboard every time the computer starts. Click "Apply," then "Save." Close the window.
