Keyboard Monitor overview

Version 2.6 released at 04/07/2020

If you are looking for a handy tool to get information on your keystroke count or want to test your own dexterity, try our Keyboard Monitor Windows 10 gadget. With it, you will be able to view the number of total keystrokes, along with the current, average and maximum speed, measured in kps (keystrokes per second) in real time.

This tool contains a “Play/Pause” button in the center. With its help, you can run or pause the counter if required. Moreover, you can always manually reset all counters. Apart from that, if you double-click anywhere on the gadget’s main frame, it will open the “Keyboard Properties” window.

The gadget allows you to personalize for each element of the interface. Furthermore, you can assign a keyboard picture.

Keyboard Monitor works on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Unfortunately, it doesn’t run under the 64-bit sidebar. To use Keyboard Monitor on a 64-bit operating system, you must switch your Sidebar program from 64-bit version to 32-bit. Our 64 to 32 sidebar gadget help you to easily do it.
