Free backlit Keyboard

Recommended Posts

As someone who flies with the lights out at home its often difficult to see the keys, though I have used a USB light in the past. The joystic is also right in front of the keyboard so this blocks the direct view of it. Yesterday I was purchasing EzDok and as per normal used the Windows Virtual Keyboard to fill in the card details as this protects against key loggers and is a mouse action only. Then I got a brainwave and used this keyboard for some functions in FSX that I don`t have enough buttons for on my joystick (can`t afford a yolk yet). Bingo, worked perfectly and I can see it in the dark as its fully backlit and I can minimise it when I finish. I used Windows Search, keyed in keyboard and selected the On-Screen Keyboard. I also dragged it with a right click to my quick program bar and chose shortcut. You can use the desktop if you prefer. I hope this helps, its a boon to me to say the least. I have a program to add 2 keyboards but no need to work that one out now.
