Make Your Keyboard Easier to Use

There are a number of ways you can adapt your computer to make it easier to use the keyboard. These guides explain how to customize your operating system (Windows or Mac), so that you can use the keyboard with one hand, for instance, or minimize accidental keystrokes. You can also set up the on-screen keyboard and learn shortcuts and other tricks to reduce the amount of typing you need to do.


Change the Keyboard Settings on Your Computer

Change the settings in your operating system to control the pace of repeated keystrokes and avoid accidental keystrokes.


Use the Keyboard With One Hand

Change the settings in your operating system so that you do not need to press multiple keys at the same time.


Turn On and Customize the On-Screen Keyboard

Activate your operating system's virtual keyboard, so you can use a mouse, switch or other device instead of a physical keyboard.
