Is there anyway to mod windows 8 so that when you are using a tablet and touch a text entry field in desktop mode the keyboard automatically pops up (even better if it auto closes when you hit enter)? This is the most annoying "feature" of Windows 8 in desktop mode, when using a touch device (tablet).

This would be an excellent mod if someone would do it for us.

I'm in for this. Even win7 has a popup feature when you put the cursor on a text box.

Yes you are correct in one of the betas it did use to auto popup when you clicked in a text field I remember the same thing with my Samsung Slate 7 now its gone I was just wondering the same thing myself

May this be one of that things that Microsoft disables from registry, but it's still accessible?

I'd be happy if I could get the behaviour from Windows 7 back where when I clicked on a text field there was a floating button for the keyboard next to the input.

Please... I already fixed ff w/ user chrome to make the url bar bigger and tablet friendly.

This is one of the last tweaks I need to do.

I'm sure if the feature can't be re-enabled someone can replicate launching the keyboard automatically with autohotkey?
