This tutorial will show you how to change the size of the touch keyboard for your account in Windows 11.

Windows 11 includes a touch keyboard you can click/tap on to enter text. This can be handy if you have a PC with a touchscreen without a physical keyboard.

You can change the size of the touch keyboard to be smaller or larger for your needs.
