Answered by Jason Smith

To open Task Manager using the on-screen keyboard, you’ll need to follow a slightly different process. Here are the steps:

1. First, open the on-screen keyboard on your computer. You can usually find this option by navigating to the Accessibility or Ease of Access settings in your operating system. In Windows, you can search for “On-Screen Keyboard” in the Start menu.

2. Once the on-screen keyboard is open, locate the Ctrl, Shift, and Esc keys. These keys are essential for opening the Task Manager.

3. Click on the Ctrl key on the on-screen keyboard and hold it down. Then, click on the Shift key and hold it down as well. click on the Esc key while still holding down the Ctrl and Shift keys.

4. After performing the above steps, the Task Manager should open on your screen. You can now release the Ctrl, Shift, and Esc keys.

Using the on-screen keyboard to open Task Manager can be a useful workaround if you have a physical keyboard issue or if you prefer using the on-screen keyboard for accessibility reasons.

In my personal experience, I had a friend who was experiencing issues with their laptop keyboard, and they had to rely on the on-screen keyboard to perform various tasks, including opening the Task Manager. It proved to be a convenient solution for them until they were able to get their keyboard repaired.

To summarize, opening the Task Manager with the on-screen keyboard involves holding down the Ctrl, Shift, and Esc keys simultaneously. This method can be helpful in situations where a physical keyboard is not accessible or functioning properly.
