    many ways to create a shortcut to it. It's osk.exe and can be run as such (simply from the 'run' dialogue). the actual exe can be found here: windows\system32\osk.exe

    Can't help you with the size of the keyboard.

    hah! i didn't actually tell you how to make a shortcut. for one, you can go to the menu in accessibility you mentioned, right click on it, and select create shortcut... or copy and paste it to the desktop. Also, you can go strait to the osk.exe file, right click, and create shortcut, or right click on it, click copy, then click 'paste shortcut' on desktop

    (am i still not helping?)

    Thanks worked great! Now how do I get rid of the little curved arrow on the shortcut icon? That looks so amateurish!

    can't help you there...

    Is this a shortcut on your desktop? why not make an active desktop with image maps linking to applications? That's how my car PC worked from the very begining

    I have a program, just gotta figure out how to get it to you. Its called TweakUI. About 600kb file. Lets you adjust a TON of stuff on XP. --Jeff

    You want TweakUI, and inside once you install it, look under Explorer...shortcuts
