Having trouble finding the wireless keyboard? Don't have the key to access the cupboard? Dead batteries...?
This could present a problem for you when you have to get logged into a computer and all you have is a SMARTBoard and the CTRL + ALT + DELETE screen. You may have already found out that the keyboard button shown on the tray below does not work from the CTRL + ALT + DELETE screen.

Never fear! Here is an awesome tip to have in your back pocket!
On the lower left of the SMARTBoard screen, look for the following icon:
|Ease of Access button|
|Ease of Access Options|
In the Ease of Access window, make sure that you check TWO of the boxes.
- Type without the keyboard (On-Screen Keyboard)
- Press keyboard shortcuts one key at a time (Sticky Keys)
Once you have done that you can tap Apply and OK to close out. Now you should see a keyboard icon next to the Ease of Access icon in the lower left of the screen.
|Windows On-Screen keyboard button now available|
Tap the keyboard icon to bring up the Windows On-Screen keyboard. Now you will be able to press the CTRL, ALT, and DELETE keys one at a time to bring up the log-in screen.
|Log in the way you normally would|
This will be handy in a pinch!
Hope it helps!
Have an awesome day!
