Hello guys,
yesterday i wanted to turn on my laptop, but the system suddenly changed and i cannot enter it anymore. It looks like a mobile keyboard and im absolutely not able to find a solution online. I'll attach a photo because it's hard to describe what happened. I'd be more than glad if you could help me! My system is KDE Neon 5.20.4.

Is that perhaps an "Accessibility" feature?
Are you still able to log in?

Is there a "Function" key or some other key which enables the 'onscreen keyboard'?

Does the 'physical' keyboard still work?
If 'yes' then have you tried to navigate to the bottom most, right hand onscreen key and selecting it to make the onscreen keyboard go away?

Your screenshot shows a login page. What happens when you try to log in?

Yes, the keyboard and the mouse work. I can enter the password on the login screen, but Im not able to press enter. Nothing happens. And I can not navigate, because theres like nothing to navigate through

What options are offered when you click on the session box / bar for Layout in the top left hand corner.

You might also try holding down the shift when when restarting the computer and that should bring up grub menu see what other options are available there.

Unfortunately theres nothing to choose inside the box. And opening grub doesn't work as well

Yes that works! What should I do here now?
I don't use KDE often, so I've never personally tried:

You should be able to use your built-in editor to make those changes. Assuming it's nano, then 'sudo nano /path/to/file'.

Obviously, you'll need to login first.
