    I started to post feedback via Windows feedback but figured I'd ask in case I'm missing something. Is there a way to manually slide the keyboard back down? Sometimes I accidentally tap some sort of text input area and sometimes the keyboard just decides it wants to be seen. Sometimes when this happens, the remaining area on the screen is an "action area" (ie an image link) and I don't want to have to touch it and trigger the other action just to get the keyboard out of the way.

    If there isn't I'll either post feedback or do some up voting.

    Often tapping the back button will drop the keyboard down. But it depends on the app you're using.

    Yeah in some apps the back button does the trick. In some cases though, the back button serves its normal purpose as well as suppressing the keyboard. So you end up backing out of your current screen. It would be nice if the keyboard itself had a button or slider for this.

    In 8.1 I simply tap a non-input area and that dismisses the keyboard.

    I agree. It would be nice to have that option.
