  1. Odd key translation problem on Windows 10 tablet?

    I bought a Chuwi Hi10 Pro Windows 10 tablet with the idea of working on a mobile version of a database program that I've developed for my desktop computers using Embarcadero RAD Studio Delphi. I also have Ultra VNC installed so I can work on the tablet from my desktop.

    I've run into an odd problem that I believe is some kind of problem with Windows 10 on this tablet. First when I'm using Ultra VNC to control the tablet from my desktop it almost seems like there are times when I'm tying that the tablet seems to think that either the Alt / Ctrl or Windows key is pressed when in fact it isn't; i.e. when I have an explorer window open on the tablet and with a couple hundred files and I try and scroll down by typing the first couple letters of the file name like "co" on the local keyboard the remote screen shows messages like "Auto Rotate Off" or "Projector Settings".

    Within my VCL based program on the tablet when I need to enter text into a search box for example I pop up a built in on screen keyboard (a TTouchKeyboard component) and for example when I type Shift and then F what I get is Alt-F which is a keyboard shortcut for going to the first item in the database rather than adding a capital F into the edit / search box.

    One thing that I also find odd is that if I bring up the Windows 10 on screen keyboard and press Shift F on that I don't have the problem with Alt F being sent instead of Shift F like I do with the VCL built in keyboard..

    Does this seem familiar to anyone? Have any idea's how to overcome it?

  2. Bing translator with windows 10


    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am sorry to know that you are facing issues with Windows 10.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time. Do not worry, will assist you with the issue.

    Let me keep you informed, to translate any text through Bing translator in Internet Explorer, you just have to follow two simple steps as follows:

    • Select the text you want to translate.

    • Right click on the selected text and select the option translate with Bing.

    As of now the option to set Bing Translator to the Edge is not available.

    I suggest you to use the feedback app in the insider and send your thoughts directly to the team building Windows.
