  1. When I touch search bar keyboard won't come up, then I would have to click keyboard sign on the bottom of the screen then it comes up. I went through setting but couldn't see anything to make the keyboard come up on one touch.

    Have you got any idea how to turn this function on?


  2. I am still trying to get used to the soft keyboard. Though I really have to unlearn my blind typing skills I think. I think that the whole talk about lapability, which MS is brandishing is not so much really on having the keyboard but rather having all the productivity functionalities on a tablet. So I hope that they improve the keyboard. I hope that they learn from Swift Key or the other android soft keyboards.

  3. In Metro, it should automatically appear anytime you tap in a dialog box so long as the keyboard is not attached. In desktop, unfortunately, it's not as intelligent and it does need to be pulled up manually.
