    Typing network key in with touch keyboard


    We are working in Windows 8 and do not have a plug in keyboard. Is it possible to type the network key in with the onscreen keyboard. I cannot figure out how to hold the network screen and the keyboard open on my touchscreen monitor. When I click off of the network key screen to click on the keyboard icon I lose the network screen. There must be a simple solution.

    I should have mentioned that we are in a remote area and the USB Keyboard and USB Mouse failed. I was hoping someone knew how to keep both screens open - the network screen and the touch keyboard - at the same time. Thank you for the suggestion. Yes we may have to go and buy a keyboard.

    If you touch the Network key box, the window should stay open and the keyboard should allow you to input the network passphrase.
