    You don’t need to download anything to get a keyboard on the screen that you can use to temporarily type letters until you get a new physical keyboard. There are two built-in methods you can use in macOS. Here’s the easiest one.

    Go to System Preferences, Keyboard, Input Sources. Then check the box “Show Input menu in menu bar.” When do you that, not the little icon that appears in the menu bar at the top right. It looks like a box with a Command symbol in it (⌘). Now click on that and choose Show Keyboard Viewer.
