How to view the FlexTerm keyboard layout

I have customized my keyboard layout and would like to reference my key mappings in a separate page. Is this something that can be accomplished?

Users can view their entire keyboard layout in a separate .html page.

Follow the steps below to view the keyboard layout in a list view:

  1. Start the FlexTerm Workspace.
  2. If necessary, select the appropriate FlexTerm Session.
  3. Select the Schemes ribbon tab.
  4. Press the Keyboard Scheme icon above the Keyboard tab group.
  5. Click the View Layout link next to the Search box.


  • When clicking the View Layout link, the file named Default.html is saved to the user's FlexTerm working directory, for example:

  • In certain circumstances, the keyboard layout file does not automatically open in the user's default browser and the user is prompted to choose a program to open Default.html with, for example:

    Normally this only occurs when Microsoft Edge is set as the default browser in Windows 10 and the user can select the appropriate browser from the list, then check the "Always use this app to open .html files" to prevent this from occurring again.
