Hi Everyone, First post although I have been mainly coming to this forum to gain knowledge. Love my Surface Pro, has replaced both my desktop and laptop computers. I have Office 2013 installed and I have read other users wanting the keyboard to auto open when in desktop mode like it does in metro. When I open word and PowerPoint and touch the screen to start typing the keyboard auto opens and you don't have to move the scroll bar to see what your are typing as it does this automatically like in metro. It doesn't do this for OneNote, outlook, or Excel, don't know if this is normal or if others already know this but I am wondering why it does just for these 2 applications and not others? What is different between these to auto open? I am wondering what triggers this to possibly find a solution to have this work on other apps where we have to manually press the keyboard? Also, when I tried to post in metro using IE the keyboard opens then closes? I have to use IE in desktop mode in order to post. Thanks for the help and answer.
