Access virtual keyboard

On-Screen Keyboard (OSK) Portable allows the user to gain control of their PC with. What it means is that you can access the program from a file that you have installed and use that data through the cloud or a USB. This feature means you will have the same settings on all your computers through this application



There isn't much to this program beyond expanding upon the On-Screen Keyboard Windows offers all their operating systems from Windows XP to 10. The software is open source, so anyone can take it and expand on the idea at their leisure.

It can either work through a cloud platform, an external drive, or a local file on your computer. You can access the OSK however you want. Traditionally, you have to either run it on startup or go to the installation location and open it.


The On-Screen Keyboard Portable offers no further features. You can't change the appearance or any settings for this program.

The app opens up ads on your computer without permission which is a slight danger. Other than that, there is nothing else included. You can stick to the normal OSK without feeling much of a change in the way they operate with their board.


The Free Virtual Keyboard is an option to consider when looking for an alternative to OSK. It is similar to the others, but it allows you to change the color of the display. It can become transparent, which is useful when you need to work with other things. Finally, it is also portable.

Hot Virtual Keyboard is an alternative which you will have to pay-to-use. However, with this application, you will be able to customize the interface to precisely what you want. The program also features alternative board designs that may increase productivity.

Low value

With this software, you are not going to feel a big change in the way you use Windows' OSK. All it does is make your settings portable, and even that is limited. Getting ads on your PC is not worth the value of this software. In conclusion, there is little about this app to recommend.
