Virtual Keyboard with Windows 10

While using dslrBooth with a touch screen display with Windows 10 you have the ability to use a virtual keyboard. Here's how to allow the keyboard to appear when keyboard input is needed:

Recommended Method:

  1. In dslrBooth go to Settings > General then scroll to Options. Enable "Virtual Keyboard"

  2. Make sure PC is not in tablet mode. If it is, turn off tablet mode.

  3. Right click on your Windows taskbar at the bottom. Make sure "Show Touch Keyboard Button" is checked. This should show the keyboard in the lower right part of the screen.

  4. Make sure your taskbar is not set to auto-hide. Right Click taskbar, Properties, uncheck "Auto Hide the taskbar".
  5. Go to: Windows Settings (Win+i) > Touch Keyboard Settings and set: 
    Show the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there's no keyboard attached to Off.

  6. Click on the keyboard in the lower right to make sure it opens. If it does not open on first try, click again until it opens.

  7. Open dslrBooth, run through a session, and when you get to the sharing screen click on Email. The Virtual Keyboard should appear.

 

Alternative Method (Not Recommended):

This method only works when there's no physical keyboard attached. Only use if you have issues with the recommended method above.

In dslrBooth go to Settings > General then scroll to Options. Uncheck "Virtual Keyboard". (You read that right, uncheck it).

Go to: Windows Settings (Win+i) > Touch Keyboard Settings and set: 
Show the touch keyboard when not in tablet mode and there's no keyboard attached to On.

The keyboard will start automatically when keyboard input is required. It will only start if you don't have a keyboard attached.
