Visualizing keystrokes is a great way to learn keyboard shortcuts for an app. Outside of that, if you need to record a screencast, it’s a good idea to show keystrokes on your screen and save yourself a lot of work during editing. If you need a good, customizable tool to show keystrokes on Windows 10, you should give Carnac a try.

Show keystrokes

Download and run Carnac. The app is open source and doesn’t need to be installed. When you run it, to goes straight to the system tray. By default it will show keystrokes as well as mouse clicks, highlighting which mouse button was clicked. The first thing you want to do after running the app is customize it. Double-click the app’s icon in the system tray to open its settings.

On the General Tab, you can select where the keystroke shows on your screen. Use the top, bottom, left, and right offset sliders to position the visual. Carnac supports multiple monitors so you can choose which monitor the keystroke should be displayed on. Be careful with this setting because if you offset it too much from all sides, it might cut the visual off.

Once you’ve positioned the app’s visual, go to the Keyboard tab. Here you can customize whether the app will show all keystrokes or just those that include modifier keys. You can also customize the visual, its font size, opacity, and the color.

The Mouse tab is where you can customize how mouse clicks are shown on your screen. If you don’t want the mouse clicks to show, uncheck the ‘Show mouse clicks’ option. This option is a bit buggy though so if it doesn’t apply, set the value of the Stop Opacity slider to 1, exit the app, and run it again. That should do the trick.

Here’s how the keystrokes appear on your screen.

The app doesn’t show keystrokes on both monitors which might be a shortcoming for some users but it does everything else flawlessly. If the visual isn’t easy to see on your desktop, you can customize it to suit any background and you can also change how long it remains visible on your screen. It should be recorded on any screencasting tool so there’s not much to worry about. It works with the OBS tool and with Snagit.

The app isn’t in active development however we tested it on Windows 10 1809 and it works without any problems.

If you’re on a Mac, and you need to show keystrokes, there’s a pretty great app that can do that for you.

I couldn't really think of anything so I thought I'd show something that I've been putting most of my time in for the last week: A plugin for OBS Studio which displays inputs on screen.

It's useful for tutorials so people can follow your instructions easier or for streaming games the visualize your inputs (Although that's probably more a fancy accessory than actual useful). The plugin adds two new source types to OBS: Input History and Input Overlay.
The input history, as you might have guessed displays keys you pressed in a chronological order and formats them into key combinations (for example CTRL + V).
It offers a bunch of options to modify it to your need:

  • Use any installed font
  • Change size of history
  • Include mouse input
  • Fix cut-off letters for italic fonts
  • Rename keys (and exclude any keys that aren't named)
  • Automatically clear history after inactivity
  • Use icons instead of text

Then there's also the Input Overlay, which takes a config file and a texture with all keys.
The config defines the look of the overlay and therefore allows you to completely customize which
keys are displayed and how they are positioned.
You can show game-pad, mouse and keyboard input:

That's all there's to it. The plugin depends on a third-party library for input detection, which means it's technically
cross-platform. You'll have to compile the linux/mac version yourself, though because I haven't had the time to look
into that too much.
For windows user's you can get it on github and if you need more info you can look at the OBS forums.

Applications, which detect and display keystrokes in real-time, can be very useful for those who do screencasts or screen recordings. Here is a quick look at three such applications.

  1. NohBoard
  2. Carnac
  3. QiPress


NohBoard is a keyboard visualization software. It displays a full keyboard on the screen and shows animations on key presses. The first time you launch NohBoard, you will see only a blank window. It will start showing the keyboard only after you have loaded a keyboard layout.  Load Keyboard option is available from the right-click context menu.

NohBoard Demo

There are many layouts meant for gamers as well; here is a sample.

Many of the keyboard layouts visualizes mouse actions as well. If none of the keyboard layouts which ship with NohBoard work for you, it is possible to create your own layout. You may also be able to find user created keyboard layouts on the internet.

Modify Keyboard Style

To modify the keyboard-style, choose start editing from the right-click context menu. This would put you in edit mode.

NohBoard Entering edit-mode

Now right click again, you will see that your context menu now has more options. Choose keyboard style.

In the Keyboard Style window, double click on whichever color/colors you want to change

Choose Save Style ➾ save as

Click stop editing from the context menu. Here is the result, after some customizations.

Modify Keyboard Layout

The most advanced feature of NohBoard is its ability to customize the keyboard layout. To do this right-click ➾ start editing. As mentioned earlier this makes more options available to you. You can drag the edge of the window to resize it.

You can add a new element.

In order to modify the properties of an element, you need to right-click on the element while you are in edit mode.

right clicking on NohBoard without entering edit-mode, this is the wrong way

Right-Clicking on NohBoard after entering edit-mode, this is the right way

As you can see in the picture, right-clicking on an element while you are not in edit-mode will not give you the options necessary to edit it. This is one thing you need to remember when trying to configure NohBoard. Many options like the one in this example, are available only in edit-mode. So the steps usually needed are: right-click and select Start Editing to enter edit mode, right click again to select the options you want, save changes to the style or definition as the case may be, and then select stop editing to exit the edit mode.

Do you want to show your chat exactly what keys you’re pressing while in them intense close quarter battles that seem impossible to pull off?

Showing of your keyboard and mouse button presses on screen is a great way to ward off hackusations, showcase certain button combinations for a tactic or just to showcase your mad skills.

Let’s show you exactly how you can set up on screen keyboard and mouse to show up on your twitch stream.

How To Set Up On Screen Keyboard & Mouse

Step 1 – Download Nohboard (Keyboard Visualization Program)

Nohboard is the tool we are going to be using to showcase our keyboard and mouse on the screen.

Click here to download Nohboard

When downloading select to download the zip folder to your desktop. Once downloaded you can unzip the folder to see multiple files. Click on the application file to boot up Nohboard.

When the application opens up it will display a small blue square. Right-click in the square and select Load Keyboard.

It will display 8 different keyboard types you can use. The one that you will want to use is called joao7yt. This keyboard style shows the left hand side of your keyboard (your gaming keys) and your mouse.

Some of the keyboard layouts may be useful for your specific use, however for gamers the joao7yt is the one you will want to use.

Once you have selected the keyboard you can customise the theme of the keyboard to your liking. I recommend choosing a style similar to your stream overlays.

If you click some keys or move your mouse you will see these keys lighting up on the Nohboard program.

Now we need to add this display to our Streamlabs/OBS so we can showcase it on stream.

Step 2 – Add The Keyboard and Mouse Display To Streamlabs/OBS

To add the keyboard and mouse display to OBS/Streamlabs we need to add it as a new source and chromakey out the green in the background.

Streamlabs Tutorial – How to Add NohBoard to Streamlabs

Open up your Streamlabs and navigate to the scene you want to add the display to.

Then go to Sources –> + (Add Source) –> Window Capture

Give your new source a name (Keyboard & Mouse Capture). Select done and a menu will appear to select you settings for Window Capture.

For Window select: Nohboard as your source and leave everything else as default.

You will now be able to see the keyboard and mouse in your scene however the green background is still there. We need to remove this and make the background transparent using the chroma key filter.

Right click on the Nohboard window and select filters. Click on the + button and select Chroma key as your filter type.

Select done and leave all the settings as default. You will now have the keyboard and mouse on your screen with a transparent background.

You’re now ready to show off your keyboard and mouse skills on screen to your audience.

OBS Tutorial – How To Add Nohboard To OBS Studio

Open up your OBS and navigate to the scene you want to add the Keyboard and Mouse overlay to.

Then go to Sources –> + (Add source) –> Window Capture

Name your window capture (Keyboard & Mouse Overlay) and click OK.

Select your window as Nohboard and leave the other settings as default then click OK.

You will now see the keyboard and mouse in your scene however the background will still appear as green. We want to chroma key this out.

To do this right click on the keyboard and mouse and select filters.

Click the + and select chroma key then click OK.

You will now see the green background has been removed. You can no click close and position the keyboard and mouse wherever you choose in your scene.

Now you can show off your keyboard and mouse skills on stream with this overlay.

Wrapping Up

You can now show of your expert skills or teach people how to perform certain moves in games using this overlay. The program from Nohboard is an awesome way for certain streamers to show off their skills on stream while helping their audience to improve in game.

How can I display keystrokes while recording my screen? [duplicate]

I'm trying to record a video tutorial about using Keyboard Shortcuts. To do this, I want to record my screen while also visually displaying my keyboard inputs.

Displayed keystrokes

I've been able to find OBS options for "Capture mouse cursor" and "Inverse cursor on click", but I haven't been able to find anything related to displaying keystrokes.

OBS Options

I've considered using Windows 10's built-in screen recording, but it doesn't seem to have an option for visually displaying keyboard input. (It also isn't available for Windows 7, which is what my main laptop is using.)

Now discussing:


This is a browser plugin overlay for OBS Studio. This overlay displays (virtual)controller axes as a keyboard for those who want to show off their analog keyboards on stream/recordings.

Methods used to read analog input:

The analog input is read from Navigator.getGamepads(). Reading axis from any connected controller with axes and displaying the values in HTML5 Canvas.

The current limitations of the OBS browser plugin scope is that you cannot read background keystrokes. However, gamepad information does update in the background. This overlay makes use of the gamepad information and reverses it back as keyboard information.

Doing it this way does not show any accuracy of how far the key is pressed (due to the many factors that go into the joystick output such as Analog Curve). It will however give a general idea on how keypresses could translate to the joystick output.

OBS Installation:

Create a new browser element and add one of the following URL's as the source.
