Touchscreen typing/keyboard

2015-06-28, 7:45 AM

Hello,

 

A question from a clueless lenovo newbie - I've had my ideapad flex 14 for about a year and while the touchscreen works perfectly, the option to type using the touchscreen keyboard doesn't come up.  So if I touch an area to type into, I get a blue arrow/tag, but no keyboard...as if i got disabled somehow...

 

I hoep that makes sense...

 

Has anyone else had this problem?

 

If anyone has any recommendations, please get in touch!

 

Thank you,

 

Louise

Hi Alaa,

Thanks for your suggestion, sadly this was not the issue. I'm still getting this blue tag (looks like a location tag on Google maps) instead of a keyboard.

Do you have any more ideas? It's a new laptop, I'm so disappointed it's not working correctly!

Thanks again,

Louise :-)
