    Wow, things have changed! Well for one thing, how do you change the default keyboard? Mine defaults to pen.

    Use you finger instead of your Pen and you should get the keyboard otherwise on the lower right corner there is an icon to change the keyboard layout....

    Bottom right of the keyboard. Big button that has a keyboard on it. Hit that and you get to choose what you want to use.

    what i meant was...that I wanted it to pop up automatically like it did before & be the type of keyboard I use all the time. When I touched the search bar in google before, the proper screen popped up, now I have to touch that icon to get a screen & then have to pick a screen b/c it defaults to "pen"

    And I have never managed to get the handwriting panel to appear by default any time other than when a text field was highlighted with the pen.

    I thought you could tap the track pad with 4 fingers to open action centre? Or at least swipe in from the right?
