Screen touch keyboard not coming up by itself?


New Member
Hey guys,

I bought my pro 2 less than month before they announced the new pro 3, it hurts but hey i got it for a good deal so whatever.

I am happy with this device so far and its capabilities, i also use it with the power cover

Does anyone know why when i click a blank field the on screen keyboard doesn't automatically pop up.

Now i detach the power cover before i start up or log in when i try this

I have to manually press the keyboard icon on he task bar to get the onscreen keyboard up but there has to be something im overlooking

Any tips would help, thanks!

Are you in a metro or desktop interface? It doesn't automatically pop-up when in Desktop, you have to press the keyboard icon manually to bring it up.

Yes, i use it in desktop interface 90% of the time

I never realized it wont automatically bring up the keyboard since i use the power cover alot
