How to Enable Extra Keys in Termux | Enable any key Termux

Many users, including YouTubers, install the hacker’s keyboard to gain access to extra keys when using termux. It’s a waste of space in my opinion, and switching from my Google keyboard to a new difficult keypad simply to use termux is too much effort for me.

If you want to use more keys in termux, you can use several commands from the official termux website, but generating a properties file with the termux code is a bit of a pain. I’ve just consolidated many commands so that you can now enable those keys with only one command.

How to Enable All Arrow Keys in Termux:

You can access all of the arrow keys in the termux touch by using the command below. Simply copy and paste the following command into termux and the keys will show on your keyboard.
