Latest update removes Windows 8 tablet keyboard auto pop up in Opera

  • I have the same problem! Surface Pro with Windows 10. Every other program works fine so it must be Opera...

  • Can believe they removed it! livid lol

    Looks like Opera have lost me then!

  • Great, drop down forms in forums cause the keyboard to close...impossible to use

  • Please try this workaround

  • anyone affected by the virtual keyboard not appearing bug: please run Opera with --disable-usb-keyboard-detect (easiest done by creating a shortcut to Opera, clicking right mouse button on it, pressing Properties, adding the value in quotes (without the quotes themselves): " --disable-usb-keyboard-detect" after what is already present in the Target textfield.

    leocg, thanks, I just saw that and came to post it and your link was here 😉

    Can a mod add #RESOLVED to the title please for other users to see 🙂

  • Is there a easier way or step by step/video ? It is not working for me 😕

  • "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --disable-usb-keyboard-detect

    the SPACE between " and -- is paramount!

    Would be easier to copy and paste the above in the Opera mods original post IF he had put the full info in 😉

  • I'm having the same problem. I tried the fix above but can't seem to change the Target textfield. An error message comes up: "The name 'C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe' specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct."
    Am I doing something wrong?? 😕

    Update: Yes, I was doing something wrong! Thanks to everyone for posting the fix! 🆙

  • I tried it with the argument. But it doesn´t work for me. This is how i tried it:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" --disable-usb-keyboard-detect

    Could it be that it only works with opera 32 bit?

    I have tried opera 38, 39.0.2256.48 and the newest beta-version. But it doesn´t work.

    Have anyone an idea?

    Thank you very much
    Beyt regards
    George
