Issue
The "On Screen Keyboard Quickstart Button" on the left side of the screen keeps appearing when I touch the screen of my Magelis iPC or HMIG5U2. This object can be used to slide in the Windows On Screen Keyboard. 

This can appear even if there is a full screen application (like Vijeo Designer, EcoStruxure Operator Terminal Expert, EcoStruxure Machine SCADA Expert, etc) running in the foreground and gets in the way of normal touchscreen operation.

Why does this appear even though it is disabled in the Windows "Ease of Access" center and how do I disable it?
