Windows 10 1709 Change Keyboard Size Solution/WorkAround (Fall Creators Edition)

Windows 10 1709 Change Keyboard Size Solution

  In previous editions of Windows 10 before 1709 (Fall Creators Update) it was possible to resize the Touch Keyboard using a previous video of ours. With the new edition such has changed. However, we are able to work around this to get the same benefits. This video shows you how without having to use a third-party keyboard!

1. 00:00:00:00 / 00:00:05:59 - hello and welcome to this video in this
2. 00:00:03:68 / 00:00:10:23 - video we're gonna show you how to
3. 00:00:05:59 / 00:00:14:16 - actually have a workaround basically the
4. 00:00:10:23 / 00:00:18:92 - keyboard size in the latest edition of
5. 00:00:14:16 / 00:00:24:66 - Windows 10 which is 1 709 creators fall
6. 00:00:18:92 / 00:00:28:85 - edition ok before we had a video where
7. 00:00:24:66 / 00:00:32:54 - we had our registry tricks to basically
8. 00:00:28:85 / 00:00:36:71 - be able to make this a lot smaller and a
9. 00:00:32:54 / 00:00:40:10 - lot easier to use the problem is in the
10. 00:00:36:71 / 00:00:44:05 - latest edition that registry trick does
11. 00:00:40:10 / 00:00:48:21 - not work other tricks do not work ok so
12. 00:00:44:05 / 00:00:53:78 - the only options we now have is to
13. 00:00:48:21 / 00:00:58:43 - actually go back to our Windows OS K key
14. 00:00:53:78 / 00:01:01:79 - board unless you actually want to go for
15. 00:00:58:43 / 00:01:04:43 - a third-party keyboard which lots of
16. 00:01:01:79 / 00:01:07:17 - people seem to like at the same time I
17. 00:01:04:43 / 00:01:09:95 - don't trust it because for all I know
18. 00:01:07:17 / 00:01:13:07 - that's a third party keyboard whatever I
19. 00:01:09:95 / 00:01:16:82 - type in it could be being sent to their
20. 00:01:13:07 / 00:01:20:90 - own servers ok so I'd like to stick with
21. 00:01:16:82 / 00:01:26:84 - what's in Windows itself the first thing
22. 00:01:20:90 / 00:01:32:10 - I want to show you is basically scroll
23. 00:01:26:84 / 00:01:37:51 - down all the way to Windows ease of
24. 00:01:32:09 / 00:01:43:03 - access and on-screen keyboard we can
25. 00:01:37:51 / 00:01:46:82 - happily modify this size quite nice
26. 00:01:43:04 / 00:01:51:18 - literally - the same way as we had
27. 00:01:46:82 / 00:01:54:50 - before and you have your function keys
28. 00:01:51:18 / 00:02:00:74 - no problem it'll remain the same place
29. 00:01:54:50 / 00:02:03:42 - click on options make sure that's that
30. 00:02:00:73 / 00:02:07:93 - okay you can have text prediction if you
31. 00:02:03:42 / 00:02:11:48 - want it chooses words then we want to
32. 00:02:07:93 / 00:02:14:03 - basically make sure it starts up when I
33. 00:02:11:48 / 00:02:14:03 - sign on
34. 00:02:14:88 / 00:02:22:42 - take this box this is the most important
35. 00:02:18:71 / 00:02:29:87 - thing what this is kind of doing is kind
36. 00:02:22:43 / 00:02:34:76 - of overriding this but life is still not
37. 00:02:29:87 / 00:02:37:58 - perfect if you do use a pen and
38. 00:02:34:75 / 00:02:41:00 - handwriting you may still like to stick
39. 00:02:37:58 / 00:02:46:18 - with this if you don't what you do need
40. 00:02:41:00 / 00:02:49:06 - to do because this might pop up still
41. 00:02:46:18 / 00:02:55:67 - when you actually want this tinier
42. 00:02:49:06 / 00:02:59:09 - keyboard so let's go to services what I
43. 00:02:55:66 / 00:03:07:21 - will do is I'll minimize this and I'll
44. 00:02:59:09 / 00:03:13:03 - actually pin this right click pin to
45. 00:03:07:21 / 00:03:15:43 - taskbar so it stays there permanently in
46. 00:03:13:03 / 00:03:22:39 - case we ever get lost we can always get
47. 00:03:15:43 / 00:03:28:81 - this keyboard back ok very simple now go
48. 00:03:22:40 / 00:03:35:99 - to services click enter on that first
49. 00:03:28:81 / 00:03:42:76 - one scroll all the way down to basically
50. 00:03:35:99 / 00:03:46:93 - touch keyboard ok touch keyboard and a
51. 00:03:42:77 / 00:03:52:18 - handwriting now if you keep this at
52. 00:03:46:93 / 00:03:55:57 - manual in case it's ever ever needed it
53. 00:03:52:18 / 00:03:58:43 - will automatically start up ok some
54. 00:03:55:58 / 00:04:04:37 - people do use pens etc you may want to
55. 00:03:58:43 / 00:04:06:65 - keep it it might override our smaller
56. 00:04:04:37 / 00:04:10:78 - size keyboard with the big pop-up
57. 00:04:06:65 / 00:04:13:55 - keyboard or the big pop-up writings but
58. 00:04:10:78 / 00:04:16:44 - what we are doing is we're disabling it
59. 00:04:13:55 / 00:04:23:09 - we're also stopping the current service
60. 00:04:16:44 / 00:04:25:72 - ok can shut that down what happens at
61. 00:04:23:08 / 00:04:29:20 - this point after disabling it
62. 00:04:25:73 / 00:04:32:48 - is you can try clicking on it it doesn't
63. 00:04:29:20 / 00:04:36:56 - work okay we still have our on-screen
64. 00:04:32:48 / 00:04:41:21 - keyboard okay that we can use just as an
65. 00:04:36:56 / 00:04:44:30 - example of open up that and clicked in
66. 00:04:41:20 / 00:04:46:44 - there and we can use on-screen or the
67. 00:04:44:30 / 00:04:49:43 - regular keyboard that we're using
68. 00:04:46:44 / 00:04:53:02 - disable that for some reason after you
69. 00:04:49:43 / 00:04:54:59 - disable this touch keyboard our normal
70. 00:04:53:02 / 00:04:59:59 - keyboard you can probably hear us typing
71. 00:04:54:58 / 00:05:04:87 - away madly does not work this will not
72. 00:04:59:60 / 00:05:08:30 - work at present even going over here and
73. 00:05:04:87 / 00:05:09:70 - trying to type does not work so what
74. 00:05:08:30 / 00:05:12:56 - we're gonna do we're just gonna keep
75. 00:05:09:70 / 00:05:15:76 - this there we're gonna minimize it we
76. 00:05:12:56 / 00:05:18:37 - need to restart sometimes it's taken to
77. 00:05:15:76 / 00:05:22:68 - restarts to actually get it to start
78. 00:05:18:37 / 00:05:28:87 - functioning and like before it has
79. 00:05:22:68 / 00:05:32:14 - restarted we did resize this obviously
80. 00:05:28:87 / 00:05:35:62 - and we kept it where we want to keep it
81. 00:05:32:14 / 00:05:38:28 - okay and it after reset it came straight
82. 00:05:35:62 / 00:05:40:55 - back if you're lucky with the first time
83. 00:05:38:29 / 00:05:47:30 - you should be able to use your normal
84. 00:05:40:55 / 00:05:51:80 - keyboard if you have one attached or if
85. 00:05:47:30 / 00:05:57:13 - you don't you should be able to use this
86. 00:05:51:80 / 00:06:02:03 - keyboard and it's worked okay once again
87. 00:05:57:13 / 00:06:08:77 - this will not work you can literally get
88. 00:06:02:02 / 00:06:14:08 - rid of it over here and let's try what
89. 00:06:08:77 / 00:06:19:30 - would happen normally if I was to try
90. 00:06:14:08 / 00:06:21:70 - and type something in here basically
91. 00:06:19:31 / 00:06:25:25 - without a keyboard attach that huge
92. 00:06:21:70 / 00:06:28:25 - keyboard would come up okay or in
93. 00:06:25:25 / 00:06:30:25 - WordPad etc you got your full keyboard
94. 00:06:28:25 / 00:06:33:29 - you've got all the options you've got
95. 00:06:30:25 / 00:06:35:71 - the function keys you have it all there
96. 00:06:33:29 / 00:06:37:52 - you can obviously change languages of
97. 00:06:35:72 / 00:06:39:74 - the keyboard over here if you need to
98. 00:06:37:51 / 00:06:41:47 - add extra click on their line
99. 00:06:39:74 / 00:06:45:31 - which preferences and add different
100. 00:06:41:47 / 00:06:51:74 - languages and this should show it all
101. 00:06:45:31 / 00:06:54:13 - okay so fortunately in this video it one
102. 00:06:51:74 / 00:07:00:86 - restart in the past as I did mention it
103. 00:06:54:13 / 00:07:04:00 - has taken two and this I'll just show
104. 00:07:00:86 / 00:07:06:59 - you even if you close it down there we
105. 00:07:04:00 / 00:07:14:06 - go it's over there if I was to open it
106. 00:07:06:58 / 00:07:16:36 - up it comes back to the same size let's
107. 00:07:14:06 / 00:07:19:93 - do another restart just to see if all is
108. 00:07:16:37 / 00:07:20:64 - good to be honest with you it's just as
109. 00:07:19:93 / 00:07:26:64 - good

111. 00:07:26:64 / 00:07:35:56 - keyboard which was a pain being half the
112. 00:07:31:50 / 00:07:38:78 - size of your window we have now
113. 00:07:35:56 / 00:07:42:18 - overridden it which is what should have
114. 00:07:38:77 / 00:07:47:82 - happened originally and now we are using
115. 00:07:42:18 / 00:07:51:13 - the on-screen keyboard and life is just
116. 00:07:47:82 / 00:07:55:44 - as good thank you for watching please
