The on-screen keyboard refers to the special features of Windows 10. It is designed to help people with special needs when working at a computer. But this function will be useful for any user when his physical keyboard fails. Virtual input will help replace it, since the panel contains all the keys necessary for the comfortable operation of the PC.
Using the Windows 10 virtual keyboard may also be needed to improve the security of personal data. The essence of this option is that the computer can be infected with a keylogger. This is a special type of virus that reads keystrokes. Accordingly, your password may be in the hands of intruders. And it is believed that screen input will avoid such a situation.
