    On-Screen Keyboard bug changes foreground window

    This On-Screen Keyboard bug changes the current foreground window.

    Steps:

    1. Open Edge and notepad and maximize them (never minimize them)
    2. Select notepad by clicking on it in taskbar (it's now on top)
    3. Open the On-Screen Keyboard (in Windows Ease of access)
    4. Type a few characters into notepad with the On-Screen Keyboard
    5. Minimize the On-Screen Keyboard
    6. Select Edge by clicking on it in taskbar (it's now on top)
    7. Restore the On-Screen Keyboard by clicking on it in taskbar and use it to type into Edge
    Result:

    Notepad is now on top

    Expected result:

    Edge remains on top i.e. the On-Screen Keyboard maintains the current foreground window in which you intended to type.

    History:

    This superuser Q&A contains links to this bug being reported in windows 8, windows 7 and claims it goes back 17 years to Windows XP.

    Workarounds:

    Kill the On-Screen Keyboard every time instead of minimizing it. The bug occurs because the On-Screen Keyboard fails to keep track of the current foreground window while minimized.

    Patch out the SetForegroundWindow call from the On-Screen Keyboard binary as described in the superuser link above.

    Wait 17 more years for Microsoft to fix it.

    Tell user to stop being disabled.

    Windows on screen keyboard covers the input field on Microsoft Edge, bad design or bug?

    on screen keyboard covering input areas?

    When I'm typing using the virtual onscreen keyboard on my surface pro 4, the keyboard appears over top of the input area in many apps, for instance like this input box. its particularly bad in apps like slack where there's just one line of text type into
    and its on the lower half of the screen. I'm used to my ipäd where the ios keyboard pushes apps up so that the keyboard doesn't obscure any of the app itself.

    anyone run into this?
