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 touch keyboard theme to one of the many included themes, or to a custom theme you create.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22504, to further personalize your Windows text input experience, Microsoft has expanded the 13 themes for the touch keyboard to now apply to other input experiences, including IMEs, the emoji panel, and voice typing. Also available for all themed experiences is the theme engine that allows you to create a fully customized theme including background images. This isn’t available to all Insiders just yet as Microsoft plans to monitor feedback and see how it lands before pushing it out to everyone.

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


Touch keyboard theme settings are saved to the registry key below for the current user.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7
