    I am having the same issue. I have no problem typing in Chrome directly, it's only the Chrome sign in box that isn't taking input from the on-screen keyboard. I can copy and paste input in, however the Chrome sign in box vanishes if you click anywhere else on the screen, so I can only get the username or password in that way, not both. It appears they take input, just no flashing cursor or input being taken from the on-screen keyboard. Like mlpope1121, this wasn't an issue in 8.1 before I upgraded. I have even tried resetting the PC to no avail, except losing my ability to downgrade back to 8.1. Does anyone know if there is any other way to sign into Chrome without using the default sign in box? Any help would be appreciated.

    UPDATE:
    I went to my local NCIX here in Vancouver, and picked up a USB Micro-B to USB adapter, so I could plug in a standard keyboard/mouse. With a standard mouse and keyboard I had no problems signing in. It appears to be a problem with the on-screen keyboard only.

    If you use the tab key on the on screen keyboard you can tab your way into the fields and then type. Worked for me on my Dell Venue.
