    So this just started after the most recent update. Whenever I'm in tablet mode on my Surface Pro (2017) i5, 8GB, 256GB and I do something as click on a new tab in chrome the onscreen keyboard will pop up. If I switch to a previously open tab, again the onscreen keyboard will automatically pop up. This also happens if I click on the windows icon in the lower left. I don't want it popping up when I'm not wanting to type. It's just getting in the way. It never behaved like this.

    Any suggestions?

    Edit: Seems to be a chrome issue.

    I came on the forum today to post the exact same question. The exact same is happening to me and its very annoying. When i'm on edge, no issues, but I use chrome 99.9% of the time and keyboard constantly pops up every time you tap anywhere on the screen. As above this stated happening with the April update. I have the exact same Surface Pro configuration as the OP too.

    Well guess what I did. I was thinking about deleting chrome and reinstalling but i didn't go that far. What I did was go into my chrome settings and reset everything thing to default. I signed out of chrome and said yes to delete all content and settings, then I signed back in. Did a reboot and now chrome is acting properly. Keyboard only comes up when its supposed to. Hope this "fix" works for everybody else.

    Maybe I spoke too soon. It's definitely better. Only brings up the keyboard on MSN's site now. Go figure thats a Microsoft website.

    My wife was complaining about this last night. She'll be pleased to know it's not just her. I saw a suggestion that you can disable the "Touch Keyboard and Handwriting" service.
