On the Desktop I see the keyboard icon in the tray, but in the Start screen there is no such icon. How do I bring up the on-screen keyboard to search using touch in the Start screen?

Can you search for the keyboard, right-click and Pin to Start? – Guy Thomas Dec 21 '12 at 12:03

When you swipe from the right (to bring up the Charms bar) and select the Search charm, you get a text box. Touching it should show you the OSK.
