    How to Turn On or Off to Play Click Sounds as you Type on Touch Keyboard in Windows 8 and 8.1


    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off to play key click sounds as you type on the on-screen touch keyboard in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1.

    On the Surface tablet, this setting would also include the key click sounds made while typing on a touch cover accessory.

    Note   Note
    This does not affect the clicking sound for the On-Screen Keyboard.


    By default, the on-screen touch keyboard will only appear automatically on a touch PC when you tap in a text field in a modern UI screen or modern app. When you want to type using the on-screen keyboard with Surface, fold back the cover or remove it. Next, tap in a text field or other area where you can type. The keyboard appears automatically.

    They don't automatically appear if you’re using a desktop app. Instead, you need to tap or click the Touch keyboard icon on the right side of the taskbar.
