    hi! anybody knows a program to have some keys on the screen?
    i would like it semitransparent, always on top (or easy access) with the basic keys like ctrl, alt, enter, esc, shift, space... or customizable (better option), even with middle or right click option and it should consume very little memory

    i have found some of them like:
    http://www.2fl-biz.com/dialkeys-on-screen-virtual-keyboards.html
    http://www.gottabemobile.com/MiniScrollerSoftwareInkShow.aspx

    the first seems great, but i am sure it will consume a lot of memory and the second is great, but i miss several keys.

    i would like it for working with photoshop and other applications that needs the keys for some functions.

    thanks!

    A real essential for me is Quick Buttons:

    http://www.mjtnet.com/quickbuttons.htm

    From the website:

    "...QuickButtons allows you to create an "AppBar" with buttons that simulate keystrokes. An AppBar is like the Windows Task Bar - a bar that sits at the bottom or top of your screen....QuickButtons simplifies keystrokes on Tablet PCs or where a keyboard is not readily available..."

    Using this in conjunction with Ritepen and MiniScroller makes the tabletpc vision work. I'm currently experimenting with ModLock...which I like a lot.

    What baffles me is why Msoft doesn't include an easily integratable suite of these kinds of utilities with the Tabletpc OS. Until many users find things like this - thru bumping about online or forums likie this - they're essentially handicapped.

    they seems good too, but they are not free. i hadnt think to pay for the program, this is more freeware-type utility.
    modlock is just 31kb and freeware is usually the best (they dont need to justify the fee by putting useless options you will never use), except because sometimes the support is not great.

    thanks anyway

    Look a bit closer...Quickbuttons has two versions, free and paid. The free version does everything most of us need. Unlimited key-combos. What the paid version gives you is basically the ability to run macros. Give it a try!
