    My company uses GoToMyPC as its remote access solution. When I am connected in to my office workstation through GoToMyPC on my Surface in tablet mode, I can only type one letter at a time in the remote screen, because the on-screen keyboard disappears each time I type a letter. I have to click on it again to get it back, then when I type, it disappears again. The hardware keyboard has no problem.

    I have the same problem, it seems to be caused by a text input popup. For instance offering to autofill or the google search input transitioning to the chrome url bar.

    Damn, sounds SUPER annoying. I would love to be able to use my Surface Pro 6 in Tablet Mode in an Enterprise or work environment for Deskside support or troubleshooting. I can imagine it being a powerful tool in the field.

    Have you tried a 3rd party keyboard utility (desktop app or Microsoft Store app)?
