    SurfaceGo - No Onscreen Keyboard


    Hi all,

    I have a SurfaceGo without a physical keyboard , so the onscreen keyboard is of utmost importance.

    Unfortunately the keyboard refuses to popup when I tab in a text box, also taping the onscreen keyboard icon on the taskbar triggers no response.

    Please advice

    Thanks

    Bo

    :)

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family. I would be happy to assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that the Onscreen keyboard freeze/crashes to restsrt again by itself after upgrading to Windows 10.

    To be able to help you better, kindly provided us few more details on the below questions.

    1. Do you receive any error message when the on-screen keyboard crashes?

    2. Do you observe the similar issue when logged into the computer using a different user Account?

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.

    • In Command prompt type
      sfc/scannow
      and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Hope the above information was helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
