Operation Options

This will open an Operation Options dialog allowing you to set your preferences while using OnScreen. These include Reacting to Dialogs and other Windows, Typematic operation, Keystroke / Click option, Virtual Pointer, Action Button Move, Lower Case display, Track Pointing Device Input, and Key Border.

Key Options

This opens the Key Options dialog where you can select Keys and Key combos (Ctrl, Shift, Alt) that may be Enabled or Disabled. Additionally, a Key or Key Combo can launch an executable. In conjunction with the OnScreen Developers Kit, this capability can be used to create new operational features, such as Minimize after the Enter key is pressed.

Special Options

This opens the Special Options dialog box where Special handling features for Advanced users, developers, and integrators can be found. Includes the Supervisor/Operator mode options, and Custom Logo Feature, along with the ability to react to other windows in the system as they become active (Special Handling), including the ability to launch a separate executable.

The six buttons in the middle of the dialog box offer additional configuration options for OnScreen.

Panels Select the panels which OnScreen displays.

Motion Select the motion of your panels.

Size Select the size of OnScreen.

Info Select the information displayed in the Information panel.

Colors Select the colors for each panel.

Fonts Select different character display for OnScreen.

Display Options

Display 3D Keys - Check this option On to enable the display of the shaded, three-dimensional look keys. For resolutions of 256 colors or less, it is recommended that this option be set Off. OnScreen checks the current display capabilities when started, and may override this option. Note that the 3D keys are only displayed for sizes 8 or higher (the smaller sizes do not have enough displayed pixels to effectively render the 3-D look).

Enhance Button

This opens a Dialog Box that allows you to select Visual Enhancement options - Key Highlight and/or Key Zoom (key magnification window).

Show & Hide Keys

This opens OnScreen in a special mode that allows keys on the main keyboard panel to be hidden. This is useful for controlled applications where certain keys or key combinations need to be unavailable - for example, hiding the Alt key makes Alt-F4 impossible. To hide a key, click on the key - OnScreen will be repainted without the key just selected. To re-display a hidden key, click on the space where the key normally would appear, and the key will be shown again. To Save the current setting, click on OK . Select CANCEL to ignore any changes. Select Reset to Show All Keys on OnScreen.

OnScreen Logon Utilities

In order to logon onto Windows & obtain access to Network resources, the appropriate logon configuration is required within Windows. There are various options available in OnScreen to display & interact with the logon requirements. This opens the appropriate configuration options for the Windows platform running. See OnScreen Logon Utilities for more information.

Note: In general, when you make changes within OnScreen Setup, the changes are immediate and reflected by OnScreen. However, some display option combinations may require a restart of OnScreen for proper display. The logon options typically require a restart of Windows.
