Hi, I am new to the forum. This question may be answered already... I am using a Surface Pro 3, however, the same scenario is also seen on a Surface Pro. When I open the device manager -> keyboard, there is a "HID keyboard device" even there is no keyboard attached. The status showed the keyboard is working properly. If I "uninstall" this keyboard device, the device is removed. If I bring up the "On screen soft keyboard". The soft keyboard is working fine. So, I confirmed that this HID keyboard device is NOT the soft keyboard. If I perform a "Scan for hardware change", then this "HID keyboard device" is shown again. If I attached an external USB keyboard to the USB port, or attach the surface cover, then there are 2 "HID Keyboard device" shown. I am confused about what the "HID keyboard device" is? I guess it meant a hardware device but where is this device? I googled and can not find any information on this. If anyone know what is this device and/or how to get rid of it, please help! Thanks!
