This new release updates the launcher and installer and adds digital signatures to ensure integrity. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format for easy use from any portable device and integration with the PortableApps.com Suite. And it's open source and completely free.

On-Screen Keyboard Portable ScreenshotOn-Screen Keyboard Portable makes it easy to access Windows' built-in On-Screen Keyboard on any system you come across. It remembers your settings for sound, hover to select or click to select, always on top, keyboard layout and more as you move from PC to PC. And the icon sits right in your PortableApps.com Menu for easy access. For earlier operating systems that lack a built-in on-screen keyboard (Windows 95/98/Me) it even includes a simple virtual keyboard that, while lighter on accessibility features, is still useful.

Keylogger Note: While on-screen keyboards offer protection against hardware keyloggers, they do not offer protection against software keyloggers (which are far more common). They are primarily intended as an accessibility tool or for alternate means of text entry (pen-based computing, etc).

New In This Release

The launcher and installer have been updated to the current PortableApps.com Format. Digital signatures were added to ensure integrity.

PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format

On-Screen Keyboard Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.


On-Screen Keyboard Portable is available for immediate download from the On-Screen Keyboard Portable homepage. Get it today!

Do you plan on updating the "Downloads" counts?

It's been a while on some of them. Some of them are updated.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I've always got time to do that kinda stuff. I'm going to need permission to edit my app pages at some point (we can't have Ryan do it all :P), so I wouldn't mind at all.
