On screen keyboard.

I'm currently lying down on my belly, on my bed, out of reach of my keyboard, typing this message with my mouse. It's time consuming but much less vigorous an exercise. It's perfect for when you want to lay down and relax or dose off but you're not quite done typing yet.

Anybody else take advantage of this handy little feature?


Due to my distance from the screen I do have to zoom in to read, but I can do that with the on screen keyboard as well, using the usual shortcut.

Good for entering private info to avoid keyloggers. I don't know if it helps but I do it anyway.

It frustrates me to use it for more than, say, 3 or 4 letters.

You could get pretty quick with it after a while. Good practice for those first-person shooters.

^ Control panel > Ease of access > On screen keyboard.

If I'm too lazy to use my mouse to find that, I'm too lazy to type out this shit with it.

I'm using one but if I keep it on my bed it overheats because the sheets get in the way of the exhaust.

Due to my distance from the plate I do have to reach out to grab them, but I can do that with my arms as well, using the usual shortcut.


I know the feel, bro.
