Touch Keyboard Doesn't Come Up In Chrome or Firefox


New Member
I can't find a way to get the touch keyboard to automatically come up in Chrome or Firefox when I click on a text input field (search bar etc) with the screen detached. It doesn't matter if I'm in tablet mode or not. It does come up in Edge.

MS support couldn't figure it out. Does anyone else have the same issue?


Yes, it happened after an update last week.

If you create a shortcut for chrome using a target along the lines of C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application --disable-usb-keyboard-detect, and launch Chrome with that, it seems to work fine. For now.
(I think it was actually a Windows update, as Firefox lost the function in a similar timeframe)
