Using these settings, you can specify the location of the on-screen keyboard.


Prevents the keyboard from moving.

Show the on-screen keyboard next to the text entry area when possible

Some applications draw the text cursor in their own way and do not provide information about its position (these are Firefox, OpenOffice, CorelDRAW, etc.). In this case, the keyboard will be shown in the bottom of screen.

Note: This feature doesn't work when you set the Docking setting.

Moves and sizes the active window

If the active window is under the on-screen keyboard, Comfort On-Screen Keyboard Pro sizes and moves it in view. Unlike the Docking setting, it only changes the active window and cannot change the web browser in kiosk mode.



You can dock the keyboard at the top or bottom of the screen. If you dock the keyboard, the available desktop space will be reduced. Other applications’ windows and desktop icons will be rearranged to adjust to the change.


Do not overlap the taskbar

The taskbar is taken into account when moving the keyboard to the edge of the screen if this setting is enabled.


Default position

When the on-screen keyboard appears, it will be automatically moved to the specified position (even if it had been moved elsewhere). If the user moves the keyboard to any location on the screen, it will remain at that location until disappears.

You can change this setting for any keyboard in the Edit Keyboard Type window. So your keyboards will have different positions on the screen when you switch between them.

The keyboard position changes even if the Lock setting is set.

Touch with two fingers to move

To move the on-screen keyboard, touch it with two fingers, and then move in the same direction. Note: Windows 7 and above.
