    Trick windows so it think there is a hardware keyboard plugged?


    Hello, i got a W10 tablet and want to play some old games on it. Problem is that when i don't have its keyboard docked (which weights a tons = i don't carry it), most games fail to start. Also when i have keyboard docked, i can't run the game how i want (fullscreen mode issue, but it's not due to resolution). So i'm now looking for a trick windows so it think there is a hardware keyboard plugged. Unless you have another idea? It's the only one i see.

    Of course a lot depends upon what connections are available with tablets but my choice would be a Bluetooth connection/keyboard followed by a Wireless USB dongle/keyboard or Wired USB keyboard. All the tablets I've read about had Bluetooth [short range type of Wireless] and can use a keyboard and mouse, even have a 7" model [generic] with Android OS. Bluetooth mice are a little more pricy than USB.
