Hello all,

Is there a way to reduce the size of the on-screen keyboard? When I'm using the tablet horizontal the dang OSK seems to take up almost 50% of the screen realestate.

Thx

You can Pinch the samsung keyboard and choose a different layout. I usually use the Thumb typing keyboard.

There are also some 3rd party keyboards with features to shrink and change it.

1st - My apologies for posting on the wrong forum. MOD please move to correct forum.

2nd - Thank you so much! That worked. Was able to get the split and floating OSK.

Swiftkey has a nice floating keyboard which is small and can be moved around on the screen... Plus since it's small, you can actually use the swype function usefully on a tablet.
