How To - Make the Keyman icon visible


If the Keyman icon is not on the Windows Taskbar near the clock, click the arrow or triangle near the clock:

  • You will see a collection of icons. If the Keyman icon () is not in this collection, Keyman is not running.

  • If the Keyman icon is in this collection, you can optionally move it permanently to the Windows Taskbar, to make it more easily accessible. However, Keyman will run correctly even if the icon is left in this collection.
