Using the On-Screen Keyboard of MS Windows XP
 
MS Windows XP systems have a built-in feature aptly called On-Screen Keyboard. This can be a very useful tool if you have mobility impairments and in cases wherein your keyboards falls apart during times when you really need it to access your files or read documents and check emails. The On-Screen Keyboard utility can even allow you to conduct your searching ventures on your machine faster than using a conventional keyboard. This is because the On-Screen Keyboard was designed to work with the MS Windows XP system in faster and efficient ways.

To initialize and subsequently use the On-Screen Keyboard of MS Windows XP, you should go to Start and click on the Run option. Otherwise, you can press the Windows key and R in succession. But of course, accessing the On-Screen Keyboard usually means you have a busted keyboard or a problem with the device driver of your keyboard. Afterwards, the On-Screen Keyboard of MS Windows XP will appear on the screen, but you initially need to select the typing mode that is the most suitable for you.

The first typing mode of the On-Screen Keyboard is known as the Clicking Mode. Selecting this option will allow you to click on the keys of the On-Screen Keyboard with the use of your mouse.

The next typing mode is called the Scanning Mode, which would be useless if you have a busted keyboard. This is because this typing mode of the On-Screen Keyboard requires you to key in shortcuts that will be executed by the On-Screen Keyboard.

Finally, the third typing mode is called the Hovering Mode. This typing mode of the On-Screen Keyboard allows you to hover the mouse pointer on a key of the On-Screen Keyboard. In turn, the On-Screen Keyboard will execute the key or the set of keyboard shortcuts you have done by hovering the mouse pointer on top of the keys or the succession of keys on the On-Screen Keyboard.
