    Hi All,

    Just wanna ask some user experience. I did remove the type cover driver and when I restart my surface, Windows automatically install an HID Keyboard Device driver. I did not find any unusual feeling of my keyboard while running on this driver. Did anyone here can advise what am I missing by not using the driver supplied?

    Thanks.

    The Type Cover is just a regular USB keyboard and mouse combo (with probably some sort of an USB hub inside). I found this out when my type cover caused the "USB xHCI Hub" device to be used 100% of the time, until I updated the cover's firmware.

    It will automatically reinstall the right driver.
    Device Manager without Type Cover connected.
    This HID Keyboard Device refers to the on screen keyboard I believe.

    Yes that a lowly USB 1.0 connector for the Keyboard Covers. :)
