General Reset Touch Keyboard Default Open Position in Windows 11

  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to reset the touch keyboard open position on screen to default on the main display 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.

The touch keyboard opens at the same position and same display as last closed by default.

EXAMPLE: Touch keyboard default open position on screen


Here's How:

1 Click/tap on the Download button below to download the BAT file below.


(Content of BAT file for reference)
@echo off

REG Delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7" /V OptimizedKeyboardRelativeXPositionOnScreen /F

REG Delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TabletTip\1.7" /V OptimizedKeyboardRelativeYPositionOnScreen /F

taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
start explorer.exe

2 Save the .bat file to your desktop.

3 unblock the .bat file.

4 Double click/tap on the .bat file to run it.

5 You will now notice your screen flicker and a command prompt quickly open and close as the explorer process is restarted to apply the registry changes.

6 You can now delete the downloaded .bat file if you like.

That's it,
Shawn Brink
