    On-Screen Keyboard Should Come Up Automatically

    On smartphones when you place the cursor inside a text box the keyboard pops up automatically but on my Lenovo Yoga in tablet mode this is not the case. I have to tap the tiny little keyboard icon on the bottom taskbar for it to come up.

    Is this normal for Win 8.1 machines? It seems a bit weird and certainly counterintuitive.

    Am I missing something in the settings?

    Have you tried doing the reverse to this?

Keyboard does not pop up automatically when in text box
Icon shows on task bar but must manually touch. What was MS thinking - this is a giant step backward. And I am referring to popping up the keyboard in a text box when in desktop, not on Metro (where it does pop up). In Win 7 the keyboard always pops up but MS changed the setting for Win 8 -...
