Virtual Touch Keyboards

In Windows computers where a touch screen is detected, these keyboards will be enabled by default. In Windows computers where no touch capabilities are found, or in Linux and Mac computers, these keyboards will be disabled by default. These can be enabled anytime in Config/Display preferences.
