This is intended to be easier via Wordflow, the function to make words by swiping from letter to letter, one-handed typing.

The function to operate the keyboard with one hand is not yet available in Windows 10 Mobile. The Microsoft keyboard is now in a closed test and get a release later this year. Then also released an Android version of the onscreen keyboard. Whether and when the function true for Windows Mobile 10 is unknown.
