Yoga 13: How to make onscreen keyboard come on automatically...

2012-12-23, 22:47 PM

How can I make the onscreen keyboard pop up automatically when clicking a text box? I find it a little inconvenient to have to click the keyboard icon everytime on the task bar. Help is appreciated!

It annoys me too... notice the initial Lenovo password screen brings up keyboard as needed, then goes away when hitting enter. Another annoyance is when you tap existing text windows tries to go to an edge of a word rather than in middle, and if you repeatedly try it gets stuck assuming you want to highlight a long string. Windows needs to assume you have an inaccurate finger which needs multiple tries, and maybe confirmation before doing something drastic.

Unfortunately it seems that the keyboard will only appear automatically for Windows 8 apps (i.e. from the start screen) but not for Desktop apps.  This makes the desktop apps experience much inferior to iOS text box entry.

I'd just be happy if it would stay open.  When ever I open the keyboard it just closes a second or two later.  This is right out of the box.

This topic is only about the bad human factors of having to click in two places to bring up a keyboard. That is not a bug, it appears to be the current design and a fact of life. If you have the totally different problem of the trackpad/keyboard staying active in tablet mode (test by moving over the trackpad) that will then block you from getting the onscreen keyboard to stay up more than a second. In that case, move out of this topic to the ones down lower which have many pages on that issue and peoples experiences fixing it or reporting it. Search for it on lower pages...

Its because quoting no longer works in this forum for some of us, including a moderator. Maybe I should just shut up til I can get it to make my posts more clear
