Tabtip On-Demand is a great tool for mobile users with Tablet PC which adds the missing keyboard « on-demand » functionality to the user's desktop. It is also able to scroll through web pages and push application windows into view, thus textboxes are not covered by the keyboard. Tabtip On-Demand also makes the keyboard available by mouse click (optional) on the desktop as well as in the Modern UI (Windows 8 and above).
Many applications still run on the desktop rather than in the Modern UI. If you are one of those users who feel that the lack of keyboard showing up automatically on the desktop is just a pain, this tool is made for you.
If the tablet input panel is not available, Tabtip On-Demand pops up the on-screen keyboard (OSK) instead.
No tweak needed. Tabtip On-Demand works out-of-the-box in the background without bothering you.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 32/64 bits: Vista, Seven, 8.x, 10
