    Hello. I noticed a different key pop up on the on-screen keyboard of my Surface 2. It only shows up when I'm typing in passwords (see picture).


    What does this key do exactly? I couldn't figure it out. It's probably something very simple and I might seem dumb haha but I just don't know! Thanks ��

    If enabled, when you type in a password field, it does not allow the buttons you press to light up. This is good for security purposes, if somebody is behind you or can see your screen, it is much more difficult for them to see what keys you press.

    If you are typing outside at night, that key turns the sun on so you can see what you're typing. Duh.
