To start LaoScript 8, open the Start - All Programs menu, and click on Lao Script for Windows 8 - LaoScript8 Application. However, by default, LaoScript 8 is started automatically when you log on, so will always be active unless you have closed it, or disabled the "Start with Windows" option. (See User Settings)
Whenever LaoScript 8 is active, it displays an icon in the icon tray in the taskbar, as shown here. We recommend making this icon always visible for easier control of Lao keyboard mapping:
LaoScript 8 should be started before starting Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint in order to use Lao Add-In menu functions with those applications.
