Disable on-screen keyboard that appears in Adobe products

So, I had an issue with Adobe inDesign on my Windows 10 PC. The onscreen keyboard kept popping up whenever I tried to edit text because the program couldn't tell that while I am on a touch screen enabled device, I do not have touch screens nor do I want an onscreen keyboard.

To disable:

  • Run: services.msc (windows key + R)
  • Find the service called: Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service (TabletInputService)
  • Double click it to open up the Properties dialog
  • You will want to not just stop the service, but disable it.

  • Now, I still ran into a problem with the service restarting.  To fix this, click on the Recovery tab and change all the failure actions to Take No Action
