I'm still in the learning curve with my Surface and 8.1 and often don't know which one is giving me trouble. If I'm typing with the real keyboard and then I touch the screen manually in order to move around in the body of what I'm typing or to select a box or drop down menu, etc., the touchscreen keyboard pops up from the bottom & covers half the screen. I then need to X it out to make it go away. Is there a setting somewhere that allows me to turn the touchscreen keyboard off? Thanks.
