PreCentral: Toggle the TouchPad's virtual keyboard when paired with a Bluetooth keyboard

Recommended Posts

Bluetooth keyboardPairing a Bluetooth keyboard--especially the official HP Wireless keyboard--to your TouchPad is an excellent way to increase your productivity and typing efficiency. But there are times that you may still want to use the on-screen virtual keyboard, even if you have a Bluetooth keyboard connected to your device. With the official HP Wireless keyboard, all you need to do is tap on the Toggle virtual keyboard key (top row, third from the left) to toggle the virtual keyboard on or off. You can even still use the Bluetooth keyboard when the virtual keyboard is active on the screen.

Unfortunately, the only way to initiate this toggle is from the Bluetooth keyboard itself. If the keyboard is not within reaching distance and you want to use the virtual keyboard, you either have to toggle Bluetooth off in the Device/Connection Menu, or go into Bluetooth Preferences and tap on "HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard" to disconnect it from the TouchPad. To reconnect the Bluetooth keyboard once you want to use it again later, you just need to start typing on it and it should automatically reestablish the connection.

    • Question: spacebar on wireless keyboard changes language

      Hello Forum Friends   I have attached a wireless keyboard to my LG Smart Tv, and when I am in for instance in the web browser and typing something in the URL field each time I hit the spacebar it changes my language. I have english and danish as the two keyboard choices. I cannot not chose english, it is greyed out. So I cannot run just danish. However if I unmark the danish in chose keyboards in the settings menu and run just english keyboard, the spacebar still does not work. Anybody have a solution to fix this problem. I have looked in the webbrowser settings and of course the settings menu, to no avail. I have tried another wireless keyboard without luck.   Thankyou for your assistance.

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?

    • PF50KS - CONTROL VOLUME OVER BLUETOOTH

      Hi Guys, I now own a PF50KS (KS). Before I had an PG30JG which was connected to an Logitech Bluetooth adapter and I was able to control the sound volume over the LG remote. I tried to setup the PF50KS in the same way, with pressing the volume control buttons on the remote only a stop sign appears. Can anyone tell why this happens ? The WebOS version is the 3.11...., an update is not available for Germany. PLEASE help :) !

    • Question: Virtual HDMI ports

      I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.
