Hello!

My laptop running windows 8.1 (not a touch screen) - I would like to know how to use the Touch Keyboard in the windows store app. I have the Yahoo Mail app downloaded from the windows store, I want to open the Touch Keyboard inside the Yahoo Mail app so that I can insert the emoji icons.

I already knew this: Go to desktop, right click the taskbar => Toolbar => Touch keyboard. Now what, how can I make the touch keyboard popup inside Yahoo Mail app?

Thank you for your help

I'm sure I understand, but if you are asking how to type using the on-screen keyboard without a touch screen, all you have to do is use your mouse to click the keys. I am using the on-screen keyboard with a mouse to type this sentence.

Thanks for your reply. I was talking about the Touch Keyboard not the On Screen Keyboard. With the touch keyboard you can insert Emoji icons

. By the way, there is an app name "Emoji" from the windows store that allows me to insert emoji icons to my email message, no need to bring up the Touch Keyboard. Emoji app for Windows in the Windows Store

How about right click on the task bar, select toolbars, check touch keyboard?

btw, I meant, "I'm NOT sure I understand".
