My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit, and I use 2 different fonts which are English and Devanagiri.  I have already installed the fonts under the Regional languages and I am trying to install the onscreen keyboards for both English and the Devanagiri.  But in win 7 things are different.  In previous OS version, it was under Accessories, then On Screen Keyboard.  How do I set the keyboard in win 7, thank u.

Click Start then type "osk.exe" in the search box (without the quotes) and press Enter.

In response, i had installed 2 keyboards, but when I type osk, it only shows the English qwerty keyboard.  How do I switch to the Devanagiri keyboard that I had installed.  Thank u.

Do you mean that you installed two languages on your computer? If that's the case click on alt+shift to toggle between installed languages.
