The onscreen keyboard comes on even though i have a magnetic keyboard attached!
When I select a type box on screen the screen keyboard comes on every time, even thoghe I have a magnetic keyboard attached to my Surface Pro. Once I touch the on screen button to remove the on screen keyboard it goes down, but removes half the screen I'm working on. Then as soon as I click another text box the on screen keyboard returns and covers what I am looking at. This is driving me crazy! Any help please?

If you can't remember the passcode for your Kindle, you'll need to reset your device. Press the Keyboard key to bring up the onscreen keyboard. Type reset my kindle into the passcode field, and then use the 5-way controller to select Done.
The button next to the .?123 in the right corner (see image attached) that looks like an icon of the keyboard itself is actually exactly for this issue. Press and hold this button and two options appear- undock and split. Undock will pull the keyboard halfway up the screen for this exact purpose, split will cut the keyboard in half like an ergonomic keyboard. For people who text frequently and find themselves typing with their ipad in their hands; this is a friendly option! Naturally thumb texters have split the qwerty keyboard mentally and will find this a very convenient option when needing to type with only their thumbs. Your ipad holds many tricks and bad a** features you may not realize even after years of ownership. I highly recommend "tips and tricks" guides in the App Store to find all the fun included features!!!
When does this happen? Hitting Return/Enter/or the
key will generally throw this up. It is also noticeable on spreadsheets which jump to the next specified cell and automatically create a leading upper case character in the cell just used. These are operating system or program settings.
Try noting when this happens and then re-create it to be sure. Log the sequence to see if there are any keys which are involved (also the length of time or even just tapping a key or spot on the tablet surface can have a totally different meaning)
Ensure that Wi-Fi is on. When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
Choose a wireless network from the list. Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location. Optionally, type the network password. Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard. Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long. Touch the Connect button. You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.
