I had terrifying moments. The Keyboard did NOT appear automatically on my ASUS ViVo Tab Smart tablet with Win10 when I tapped the PASS box to enter my Pass and to start the tablet. The same story - after switching the tablet OFF and ON many times.

With my dummy knowledge of computer matters there was now no way for using the tablet better than as a $500 paper weight. Luckily I recollected that a year ago I played with a Bluetooth keyboard with this tablet (never since) and luckily this connection still worked and I entered the Pass via Bluetooth and immediately activated in the tablet the Windows Tablet mode which fixed the problem.

My tablet got into the computer mode, where the screen keyboard did not appear automatically, as a result of downloading and installing a Norton virus protection application. It was done by a Norton associate but apparently the Norton is just set toward the computer mode.

What I try to understand and what I am asking to explain - Is it possible to activate a TABLET in the situation as I described (the tablet is in a mode with NO auto keyboard and a Pass must be entered to start it) IF NO BLUETOOTH keyboard is available? This could happen with many of us.

Thank you for attention
