    I have a bizarre issue with my pro 4 surface keyboard. Both shift keys, numbers 7 8 and 9, r, t, and the del key do not work all the time.

    Type Cover Won't Light Up?

    My SP Type Cover won't light up. I've pressed F2 over and over, trying it with the Function key switched both on and off. I've looked through the settings but I'm failing to find anything. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Solved I've Lost My On-Screen Keyboard

    I just un-docked my SP4 to use it as a tablet device and couldn't find the on screen keyboard. It usually pops up automatically when I want to type something, and if it doesn't, there's always been a keyboard icon on the right-hand side of the taskbar that would bring it up. Any ideas where it's...

    Booting from USB Issue

    Hello everyone, I'm starting a job from home that requires a boot up from a USB drive. I finally figured out how to boot from the USB (I'm really not very tech savvy) by accessing the UEFI and disabling secure boot. My issue is, my keyboard doesn't work while booted from the USB. It lights up...

    Strange Keyboard Issues

    Hi! My Typecover has gone bonzo over the weekend. Typing "J" gets me "6j;". Typing "R" gets me a "tab-QR". Typing "Backspace" puts my cursor in the middle of a word or something. The problem is CONSISTENT on each issue, most letters are FINE... so I think this has to be some kind of...

    I detest the Onscreen Keyboard. What am I doing wrong?

    I detest the Onscreen Keyboard on my SP4 since the day I got it. I am accustomed to the excellent SwiftKey keyboard on my phone, so perhaps am I doing something wrong with the Surface. I find the Surface's handling of misspelling, predictive text, and suggestions is mindbogglingly awful...

    Keyboards with/without fingerprint sensor

    The (official Microsoft) keyboard for the Surface 2017 doesn't appear have a fingerprint sensor, and that there are SP4 keyboards with and without the sensor. I've never had a laptop with a fingerprint sensor, but find the one on my iPhone to be quite handy and suspect I'd use it on the Surface...

    Strange Keyboard / Stuck Keys problem

    Hello all, I've a surface Pro 4 (i5 8gb) as well as a touch keyboard. It generally works well. I do a lot of closing the keyboard and opening without the computer shutting down (Annoyingly the screen turns off, which seems to cause delay with recovery of touchpad function), but I have noted...

    Type Cover (1) isn't working

    My Type cover isn't working (I have no backlight so I guess I have the first version) At first when it stopped working correctly it sometimes worked when it had a certain angle between the keyboard and the screen. Now I can't seem to find this "hotspot". I read this could be caused by a bad...

    Hey Surfaceforums I have an annoying issue with my surface cover. The buttons on the keyboard work fine, so does the touchpad, except for the 2 buttons on the lower part of the touchpad. They simply do not work at all. It is rather annoying when for example trying to select text. My surface...
