This post shows students and new users steps to change the size of the Touch keyboard when using Windows 11. There are several different kinds of keyboards for PCs. The most common type is a physical, external keyboard that plugs into your PC.
Windows 11 also comes with an On-Screen Keyboard (OSK) or Touch keyboard that can be used instead of a physical keyboard. These virtual keyboards are useful on Windows touch screen devices and those in tablet mode.

Whatever makes you happy, Windows 11 allows you to adjust the Touch keyboard to suit your environment.
