This is a non-touch laptop, but for some reasons a touchscreen keyboard pops up every time I want to log in. It started after installing a drawing tablet driver, but even disabling the driver didn't change the fact that it would still pop up. Also no, the computer is not in tablet mode.

Here's an image:

To disable the num pad from appearing on your sign-in screen, click on Start menu then search On-Screen Keyboard. On the lower right, click Options then uncheck "Turn on numeric keypad"

its not really touch, its just on screen, you can use a mouse. handy for troubleshooting

Even when unticked it still does it. And that was not the on screen keyboard I was speaking of, it looked different. I know it's the touchscreen keyboard because it appears from the bottom of the screen on Windows 10 based tablets when on tablet mode instead of a window.

When switched from pin to password, the keyboard appears instead of the numpad:

its on screen and touchscreen, same thing

odd it shows even when unticked

right click start button
choose powershell (admin)
type SFC /scannow and press enter
once its completed, copy/paste this command into same window:

Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth
and press enter


SFC fixes system files, second command cleans image files, re run SFC if it failed to fix all files the first time around, and restart PC

I assume you aren't in tablet mode. It is on all versions of windows, not just tablets. Its changes are more obvious than just a numberpad though

Disabling the Touch Keyboard service in services.msc worked! The keyboard doesn't show up on login anymore. Thank you very much for your help!
