Windows 10 New Keyboard Options Available After Cumulative Update 3

On 14th August 2015, Microsoft has released its 3rd Cumulative Update for the latest operating system Windows 10 in just two weeks. We are still digging out after installing the latest update and finding the various sorts of new things. With some of bug fixes, the international company Microsoft is steadily building various new features and the customization options into the latest operating system version.

After installing the latest update and I recommend that you do, you may have noticed the brand new icon show up out of the thin air in Windows 10 System Tray. A completely new ‘keyboard’ icon is now displayed on the screen.

It is obvious, this new icon is made to offer the onscreen keyboarding options for those users with touch screens, but there are also a whole slew of the customization options behind it that includes adding the new keyboard layout which I talked about yesterday.
