The Windows 11 Touch Keyboard

If you often use the Touch Keyboard feature on Windows 11, you may be delighted to learn that you can make it bigger or smaller depending on your needs. Here’s how.

First, open Windows Settings by pressing Windows+i or by right-clicking your Start button and selecting “Settings” from the menu.

When Settings opens, click “Personalization,” then select “Touch Keyboard.”

In Touch Keyboard settings, use the slider labeled “Keyboard Size” to adjust the size of the on-screen virtual keyboard. The default size is “100.”

Use the "Keyboard Size" slider to adjust the on-screen virtual touch keyboard size in Windows 11.

After each adjustment, use the touch keyboard icon in your taskbar to bring it up and check the size. Or you can click “Open Keyboard” located just under the slider in Settings.

Using this slider, you can make your touch keyboard really huge, where it takes up almost half the screen.

Or it can be so tiny that you can’t really type on it at all.

Or you can make it just right—somewhere in-between, depending on your preference. Happy typing!
