How to Turn Off the On-Screen Keyboard in Windows 7


Turn off the Windows 7 On-Screen Keyboard just once by clicking the red X in the upper right corner. If the computer is set to use the On-Screen Keyboard by default, it will open again the next time you restart Windows.

Windows Ease of Access Center

  • Within the Control Panel -- or by pressing "Windows-U" -- you can open the Ease of Access Center for Windows 7. Within the Ease of Access Center, you can adjust settings for the visual, auditory and tactile use of Windows. To adjust the behavior of the On-Screen Keyboard, select "Use the Computer Without a Mouse or Keyboard." Remove the check next to "Use On-Screen Keyboard" to prevent the keyboard from appearing the next time you restart Windows. You can still use the On-Screen Keyboard whenever you like by starting it from the Ease of Access Center and closing it when you're done.
