    Thank you, I've made a shortcut on desktop of TabTip.exe, then I've edited the keyboard shortcut for launch it, I've pressed Volume Up + WIndows and it's recognized as Ctrl Alt B...

    But when I press again Volume Up + Windows doesn't happen anything ):

    How about when you press CTRL + ALT + B instead?

    If the shortcut is still on your desktop, then you might try a different key combination to see how it may work.

    Whatever key you enter, you will have to press CTRL + ALT + (key entered) to open the shortcut on your desktop. Try using a normal letter say O for the key to have the shortcut as CTRL + ALT + O.

    I'm not sure you're going to be able to use a keyboard shortcut to open the Touch Keyboard since you kinda have to have it open already for a tablet to press the keys.

    You would most likely be better off having a Touch Keyboard shortcut on both your Start screen and desktop to make it easier to tap on to open it.

    What brand Tablet do you have ?
    Who makes it ?

    Can you take a screenshot with it ?

    Is the keyboard language you use English ?

    It seems odd there is no letter "o" on an English language keyboard.
