Onscreen keyboard after restart - how to avoid?


New Member

I am very satisfied with my Surface Pro 2 which I mainly use with the Type Cover 2. What is a little bit annoying is that Windows shows an onscreen keyboard after I do a fresh restart of Windows (does not happen when my Surface comes back from standby) even when I have the Type Cover connected. In general not a big deal, I simply click on the X to close it but it is completely unnecessary... So Win8 boots, shows the login screen, I type my password with the Type Cover and then the metro Start menu comes up whereas half of the screen is hidden under that onscreen keyboard.

Does anybody knows how to avoid that?

Thanks in advance!
