Solved!

Keep my keyboard on in tablet mode

HP Recommended
Pavilion x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently was gifted a huge monitor to put in my room and was hoping to plug my old Pavilion x360 into it for the time being until I buy a desktop computer. The cool thing about the x360 is the fact that you can fold the notebook almost entirely to the other side to use as a tablet. When you fold it this way, the system goes into tablet mode and the keyboard turns off so you can only use the touch screen. For me, however, I would love it if the computer could fold so that I can use the keyboard and have the display set up on my new monitor. I have already disabled the touch screen and tablet mode and was wondering if there is a way to disable the feature that automatically turns off the keyboard when the laptop is folded into a tablet. I'm sure this is simply a matter of finding this feature in the software and turning it off but I don't know where it is. Could anyone help me? Thanks.

Hello @matrixonline,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

This is actually something that Windows 10 automatically does. However, I did find a previous thread on this same topic here: How to use physical keyboard in tablet mode? - HP Support Community - 6156275

 

The comments from the other users about disabling the drivers seem to be the solution.
