Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What keyboard software are we talking about? It is possible they it may have an embedded key logger and captures every keystroke you make… I’d be VERY cautious if you decide to use one. I have never had a need for one in my almost 40 working with computers. Most complex programs will give you an option to reassign keys for specific functions.

    Why do you believe you have any need for "free key board software"? Without knowing anything about it, the only answer is "Yes, it could, if it's programmed to do it."

    But we have no way to know if it does since we don't know what it is.

    What are you trying to do that you need a special keyboard program?

    Yes, it may possible. But what is the situation that you have doubt about that?

    If it requires online/ internet connection, it might be, but if you download/ install the software the chances are few. However, during download/ installation, if the software vendor asks for registration, be cautious for your personal details.

    I'd steer clear of any "software" for a keyboard. The only thing I might load would be a driver for a non-standard keyboard. Something that might have a built in track ball or other feature that most do not. I still cannot think of why one would be needed..

    Moreover, if you did mean, for regional/ local language based keyboard software, then you can try to download/ install from the net. But they are not free. However, free for 30days or demo version may available.
