On screen keyboard, screen rotate or touch screen broken

by Buzz54 » May 5th, 2018, 8:52 pm

After updating two Linx tablets to Windows 10 1803 (Spring Creators Update), I found that the touchscreen on one and the onscreen keyboard on the other had stopped working. This has also been an issue on previous OS updates and is just as likely to be relevant in the future.

Making the following modification to the registry fixed both issues immediately.

Go to registry entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PriorityControl]
"ConvertibleSlateMode"=dword:00000000

Rename entry to:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PriorityControl1]
"ConvertibleSlateMode"=dword:00000000

If you look closely PriorityControl becomes PriorityControl1

I have also used this to fix a similar issue on another manufactures tablet with great success.
The registry mod is likely to be usable on any tablet when the keyboard, touchscreen, or screen rotate breaks directly after a Windows update or clean install.
