    Removing the touch keyboad


    I searched for this forever and finally decided to register and ask, I have a laptop with a touchscreen, it has a keyboard. I have no interest in using the on-screen touch keyboard. Any time a touch a textfield the touch keyboard appears and I have to manually close it, how do I prevent this behaviour?
