  1. Surface Windows 10 and on screen keyboard


    Anyone know why there is a white circle under the cursor in Word 2013? When you click on the white dot it brings the on screen keyboard. I cant just click on the word document, or chrome for that matter... to start typing? It works in Edge... Yes setting > Devices > Typing > and then Turn on "Automatically show touch keyboard is turned on, and the keyboard pops up in the control panel, or cortana when I go to type in those sections... just not in apps.

    Tablet mode doesnt help either.

    is it a Windows Update that changed how touch screen and fingers work or something? The white dot under the cursor was not there before, and I think the two issues are related some how. What setting am I missing to turn this off?



    :)

  2. Surface Pro keyboard problems in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    I will surely help you with this.

    Which Keyboard are you facing issues with? Is it On-screen keyboard or Surface Keyboard?

    If it is on-screen keyboard, please refer to the article for additional information:

    Home of the Microsoft Surface Device Family | Surface

    If it is Surface Keyboard, which Surface keyboard are you using? To find out refer the article below:

    https://www.microsoft.com/surface/e...hich-surface-keyboard-do-i-have?os=windows-10

    Regarding the onscreen keyboard, the information I have is that, by design, you must manually open the onscreen keyboard by selecting the keyboard from the taskbar.

    If you don't see the icon, right-click (or press and hold) the taskbar and make sure the
    Show touch keyboard button has a check mark next to it.

    Hope this solves the issue, please let us know if the issue still exists. We will be glad to help you.



    Thank you
