  • Virtual Keyboard for XP?

    Yes this is on topic. ;-)
    Looking for a virtual keyboard to use on my touchscreen in the shop.
    I am sure other have found a good solution to this. Virtual keyboard with a touchpad would be cool.
    Thanks

    From the link below:

    "...click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Accessibility, and then click On-Screen Keyboard. ".

    Like finding a $20 in an old coat pocket. :-)

      Not quite sure how that would interact with the touchscreen..... would it still require the mouse to click?

        My touch screen uses the mouse, maybe check your touch screen software settings and un hide it

          See here on how to upgrade Windows XP to Window XP Tablet PC for use with touch screens. It's from Microsoft and free.

              To use that keyboard with XP and a touch screen you will need to upgrade XP to the Tablet XP version as I linked above.

                can you post the model of your touchscreen?

                normally touchscreens will work with any regular windows operating system

                  Sure,
                  It's actually a Computer with a built in touchscreen.
                  Shuttle X50 V2. It started out as a CNC controller for Mach 3 with a Smoothstepper USB. Had to ditch the Smoothstepper due to EMI issues so now it's a shop computer. Also ordered the parallel port kit so it could be used for Mach 3 after the fact. When I bought it it was almost the same price but more available than a stand alone touch screen monitor.
