I had three available keyboard themes on my Steam Deck when I received it. There are more themes you can purchase through the Points Shop. The easiest method to access the Points Store is to scroll down one below the Current Keyboard Theme drop down menu to the Find More Keyboard Themes Visit the Points Shop button.

Right now there are a few different keyboard themes you can purchase from the store. These themes cost a total of 5,00 points to purchase.

These points are then spendable in the Points Shop on things like avatars, backgrounds, keyboard themes, and so on.
