    I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running windows Vista. Every time windows starts it comes up with this onboard keyboard o the screen. I have tried everything, but it still keeps coming up when the laptop starts. Any ideas how to stop this. Thanks.

    Check under either:

    Start > All Programs >Accessories> Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard

    Vista logo (aka Start) > Accessories> Accessibility> Ergonomic options> On-Screen Keyboard

    The On-Screen Keyboard is not listed in the Startup folder?

    What "All" have you tried?


    It's not so cut and dry anymore, is it? :(

    In Vista Ultimate, mine is listed under:
    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On-Screen Keyboard

    Thanks for the help. I actually solved the problem. You were right it was a bit difficult to figure out. I had to go into the on screen keyboard settings and uncheck start automatically when Windows starts. Appreciate the input
