  2. The Windows 10 Touch Keyboard is not using the Standard Keyboard Layout after upgrading to 1709 - How to fix this?

    Reading everything, I found following solution:

    - combination language NL and keyboard US (standard, not international) gives as result:

    • keyboard options working: Standard keyboard, little, position, pencil
    • text suggestion working
    - combination language with different keyboard (US International, RU, etc.) gives as result:

    • keyboard options working: little, position, pencil. Not working (grey): Standard keyboard
    • text suggestions working
    When you want use the combination: a different language + keyboard not US standard + standard keyboard, you need
    copied the following directories using command prompt from windows:

    • "C:\Windows.old\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink" to -> "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\ink"
    • "C:\Windows.old\‏‏Program Files (x86)‎\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Ink" to -> "C:\‏‏Program Files (x86)‎\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Ink"
    Keyboard is changed by:

    • settings touch keyboard>language>select language>options
    • Control panel>Language

    In general:

    • touchscreen keyboard acts a little bit slower, but for me acceptable
    • swiping does not work?
    • Better solution? Setting is more easy, but the functionality is less. I hope that Microsoft will improve the touch keyboard in the future...

  3. Touch screens

    I can do 60 words per minute on my phone, perhaps more now as I've got used to the phone. ( htc desire z, using the stock onscreen keyboard)

    Touch screen + predictive text I recon I could equal my keyboard typing speed. Maybe beat it depending on how advance the predictions are.

    ( hard to use predictive software on traditional keyboards as there is no way to quickly choose the suggested word, where as touch screen keyboards can have the suggested words appear above the function keys)
