    Default I shrunk my touch keyboard to teeny-tiny (but I fixed it)

    Decided to install all the July 2012 updates fum the Samsung site - thinking maybe they were more "Windows 8 ready" - on my series 7 slate. Most were fine however the updated drivers for the Wacom type stylus will apparently not play nice with Windows 8 just yet.

    The touch keyboard that would pop up was quite tiny. Not too tiny for the point of the stylus but much too small for my little fat fingers.

    So when I uninstalled the updated program, all is back to normal again.

    Must give credit to someone on the MS forum that had the same problem with the Wacom drivers and that is how they fixed it.

    We hope that as we get closer to the Win 8 release, more devices will have Win 8 specific drivers. I am including your soft keyboard in the devices category. As long as the installed drivers are working, you probably should keep them. "If it ain't broke don't fix it."

    But the point is that we have to try various things to see whether they work better, or the same, or not at all? Many will work perfectly in compatibility mode and was surprised to find Windows 7 as an option for compatibility choice even in the 7 o/s.

    I thought Samsung of all the companies would be leading the pack in getting the 8 stuff out there. Bought a Samsung AIO with a touch screen & put W8 on a partition so I can dual boot. So far I don't see as much advantage on a desktop like I do on a tablet. The tablet is so easy to write on, instead of typing , as I am doing for this post. Will have to play on the desktop more before I can recommend 8 for it.

    I stand corrected. Yes we are indeed testing this OS. I have tried and adopted many apps, and tried and rejected many others. This is one of the reasons I keep up to date Images. I tend to fudge things up regularly. Good job on finding your problem, Thanks for posting so others might learn from it.
