    Software keyboard

    Are there any software-based keyboards that would pop-up (sort of like what you can do on a Palm Pilot) and let me use my touchscreen to "type". It wouldn't be useful for writing a letter, but to control Winamp or Mappoint, it might work well without having to get a full keyboard.

    If you can find a very old copy of windows95 Beta, I think. program was called "Pen Services"

    It was a popup keyboard for windows, I have used it in the past.
    If you connot find it, I will try to dig it out for you.

    WinXP has an on-screen keyboard, I don't know how useful it would be at the resolution normally used in carpc's as the keyboard cannot be resized.

    Start->programs->accessories->accessability->on-screen keyboard

    Use a SEARCH. We have covered this many times before I don't mean to be rude but we have.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway
