    How do I have the virtual keyboard launch automatically while in desktop mode when I click on a field that requires text. I have to keep clicking the keyboard in the task tray. It should show up automatically right? Any help would be appreciated.

    It does not appear to be possible. Virtual Keyboard

    It should come up if you touch rather than click, which makes sense.

    I feel your pain goku. This would be useful in a HTPC configuration. The logitech t650 trackpad is actually amazing* for couch surfing (internet from couch rather than sleeping on friends couches) *note: it needs a hardback book beneath it.

    But the downside is typing a username or web address. In fact it seems impossible to manually bring up the on screen keyboard AND use the search charm. Which is a major downside as W8 is a pleasure to use on a tv.

    +1 from my side, I also have Windows 8 on HTPC (which works great) and I suffer great pain because I can't call the virtual keyboard when I need to type something, I need to get off the couch and pick up the hardware keyboard. Really a pity.
