Show the on-screen keyboard when the text cursor is visible

If this checkbox is checked, the on-screen keyboard will appear when the text cursor is placed in a text field. Some applications draw the text cursor in their own way and do not provide information about its state. In this case, you can open the keyboard by pressing a hotkey or clicking the keyboard icon. You can also install a Browser Extension.

 

Show only when you click or tap a text box

If this checkbox is checked, the on-screen keyboard will appear when you click or tap a text box. If you activated application and the text cursor is visible, the keyboard will be hidden until you click a text box.

 

Extensions

You can install a browser extension to make the on-screen keyboard appear when the cursor is placed inside a text field. The extension will add keyboard-related information to the browser caption, and the application will monitor the caption for changes.

If you check this checkbox, the on-screen keyboard will disappear when you press a key on a physical keyboard; the on-screen keyboard will appear again when you touch the touchscreen, or call the on-screen keyboard by pressing a hotkey or clicking the keyboard icon.

This setting also hides the keyboard when you attach "Cover Keyboard". If your attachable keyboard doesn't hide the on-screen keyboard, please contact our support team.
