Windows Vista - Disable virtual keyboard

October 2016


I turned on the virtual keyboard in the "user login" window of Vista to type the password. Since then the virtual keyboard is a present each login. How can I disable it?


  • Start> Control Panel> Ease of access > Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard
  • Uncheck "Use On-screen keyboard"
