  • Updated 3 years ago
So I have 2 touch screen kiosks. 1 running windows 7 and one running 8.1
The kiosk that is running windows 7 has a keyboard that slides out from the left side of the screen for you to type.  Windows 8.1 has the keyboard in the taskbar, and when rise is running it covers the task bar?

I'm using the webpage widget and I have a search bar on the webpage, and I cannot type in the searchbox because I cannot access the keyboard.  any ideas.  I have even tried it with windows 10 and you get a mini box when using chrome or IE but when rise is running you cannot type in it?

any fixes?  

please help

Hey Alim,

We generally hear about this the other way around- clients wanting the keyboard disabled so people can't turn the display into their personal web browser.  Our design team here does a good job of creating keyboards for specific uses in the presentations - maybe it would be worth chatting with them about doing something like that for you?
