    I am confused, there is a popup keyboard now on windows 8 tablets, mine pops up when I want to type something so what do you mean?

    it's the same for both Tablets and Hybrids, keyboard pops up in Modern UI, while on the desktop you invoke the keyboard from the task bar.

Whats NOT, not what's hot in General Support
There's been a lot of talk about what's new and improved in Windows 8. What I'd really like to know, though, is what's NOT in Windows 8. We've all been down the experiences with Windows 7 Explorer having much of it's functionality ripped out, and various other deletions from the functionality...
