    I just installed Vista on a computer. I can not use a keyboard because
    of disability. So I use the on-screen keyboard of vista. To log in on
    the Welcome screen I have to click Ease of Use center and select the
    on-screen keyboard. On the desktop the on-screen keyboard is
    automatically started.

    Is there a way to bypass the Ease of Use Center and have the on-screen
    keyboard start up automatically in the Welcome screen ?

    Regards,

    Henk

    I enabled the Tablet PC in Windows features to get the snipping tool and
    now also get an on-screen keyboard at user logon. Both the USB keyboard
    and the on-screen keyboard can be used at that time.

    I already setup this option but it only works after the login when the
    desktop starts.

  5. That happens automatically when you have a Wacom tablet plugged in. You
    mean you can enable the TabletPC features without having a graphics tablet
    plugged in, or by using a Tablet PC (like a ThinkPad X61 Tablet)?

    It's a Dell Dimension desktop and I have a Wacom tablet driver installed
    but the tablet is not plugged in now and I don't think it was when I
    enabled the Tablet PC feature.
    I don't really want the on-screen keyboard but it seems to be all or
    none with the Tablet PC feature and the snipping tool is useful for
    producing instructional documents.
