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.

it would be pretty sweet if someone could get the same type of auto-keyboard on desktop as in metro. it would remove 25% of my touch

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

I might be mistaken, but I think in one of the betas the keyboard worked like that on my Acer W500, but not anymore...

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?
