Has anyone seen a free, compact onscreen keyboard that only has 1 row of accents?

I would like it to be:

  • Free - actually free, and doesn't constantly ask me for money...
  • Displays french accents only - or can be made to do so.
  • Doesn't disappear behind other windows
  • Usable with Windows 10

I've seen FrKeys Xp used before, but I don't need all of those features and aren't willing to pay £15 for a tool to do this.

  • I assume it should put the accent onto a character and not only insert the accent itself. Would it be ok if you type those accents instead of choosing it from an on-screen keyboard? That's how it typically works (e.g. in Germany) Mar 31 '16 at 12:49
  • If you don't need it visually, I'd recommend WinCompose Mar 31 '16 at 13:00
  • @Thomas WinCompose is a good tool, yet Windows 10 overrides it with every single key, (except ` which is needed for some of the characters. It works... but doesn't do all that I need it to do.

  • @wizzwizz2 Dunno if you still have this issue, but what do you mean Windows 10 overrides it for every single key? I can type ç and whatever just fine with WinCompose, and you can define your own key sequences.
