I’m loving the iPad to say the least. One of the things I use it for is remote desktop session into my server at home or into servers at work. Since the iPad is from the Apple world sometimes navigating Windows machines using remote desktop can be challenging. The iPad’s on screen keyboard lacks function keys and arrow keys.
I found out that when in a remote desktop session it’s really easy to bring up the Windows on screen keyboard to help things out.
This has been tested on Windows 7 and Server 2003. Click on start then run. Type osk and hit enter. Now you should have the on screen keyboard along with function keys and arrow keys.
