    How do I change my touch keyboard settings?

    In most cases, you can simply tap the area where you want to enter text, and the touch keyboard will appear. If it doesn’t, you can activate it manually. When using the touch keyboard, you have four different layouts to choose from. To view and switch between options, tap the keyboard settings icon in the upper-left corner of the touch keyboard. To dock and undock your keyboard, use the icons below the layout options. This enables you to keep it stationary or move it to a different location on your screen to suit your working style.
