Some windows 8 tablets are not displaying the keyboard. I'm still working it out as to why it happen to some.

The most common reason is someone installed one of those modified keyboard stuff (swipe or similar). The other is a trick someone just wrote to me after figuring it out:

"Fixed it!

I didn’t know I could force the keyboard to pop up. But swiping from the right side (in Win8) to bring up the settings menu/keyboard/touch keyboard and handwriting panel, works.

What usually happens, is when you touch in a text field the keyboard comes up on it's own. So I never had to worry about it before.

I’ve just logged in. Sorry for the hassle, and you may be able to help someone else with this info.

All the best"
