    how to bring windows 8 full touch keypad


    Hi friends,
    I am having problem with the touch keypad. It is not displaying some buttons such as that of alt, caps , windows key etc. They are all present on the On-screen Keyboard but not on the touch keypad. Although I am using touch keypad without any touch devices, I like the touch keypad more than OSK due to it's sliding feature. Please can anyone tell me how to bring full layout to touch keypad.I think Windows is not providing me any option cause I don't have any touch enabled devices on my PC.Anyone know how to do it from registry or configuration file or anything like that. Many thanks.

    I have this touch keypad:

    And I want to change it to like this:

    Many thanks.

    Create a custom keyboard layout and use it instead of the standard one.

    Hi Vadikan, Thanks for reply, But I think the software you mentioned works for only On-screen Keyboard Which I don't want ( It already has all the keys). I want to customize the layout for Touch Keyboard. Many thanks.

    Hi @Vadikan, I tried it but it only changes the layout for on-screen keyboard. not the touch keypad.Many thanks. I think the settings for touch keyboard are shown only when you are are using a tablet or a touch enabled PC.I am trying to find out how to bring the settings to normal non-touch PC. Many Thanks.

    Hi @Vadikan, I meant that I do not have any touch enabled devices like monitor or a tablet pc on my computer. I have a standard PC with mouse and keyboard. But even then I am using the touch keyoad with my mouse beacuse it slides automatically and can be attached to taskbar. On-screen keyboard is missing these functionalities.I you do not understand what i am saying here another post similar to this:

    https://www.eightforums.com/tablet-to...type-gone.html

    The option to make the touch keyboard display full layout which includes all function keys, windows key, alt key etc is not displayed
    on a standard pc. It is displayed only on Tablet PC's.

    Here the difference (notice the General settings):

    1) on a tablet pc or touch-enabled computer:


    Click image for larger version


    2) on a standard non-touch pc:

    Click image for larger version

    This is what I was saying. Many thanks. Microsoft needs to give the options for touch keyboard on a standard pc also. Many thanks.

    Click image for larger version

    And I want to change it to like this:

    Click image for larger version

    Many thanks.

    Also, @Vadikan , the software you told only works for this keyboard:

    Click image for larger version

    I am trying to find if there is a registry hack or something like that to enable settings for a full layout touch keyboard.
    Anyone know about it?
