    Can't find the Escape Key in the Screen Keyboard


    I notice that the screen keyboard does not include an Escape Key. I have tried using the Alternate Keyboards but none of the alternative screen keyboards have this key.

    What I would really like is a single complete key board that has all the keys you would find on a regular key board.

    On your touchscreen PC, go to your "PC Settings." Under "Touch Keyboard" turn on the "Make the Standard Keyboard Layout Available" setting.
