      I want to be able to use Chrome on my Surface Pro 3, but it’s a PITA in tablet mode. It works fine if I have the keyboard attached, but when I use it as a tablet the touch keyboard will not display. I’ve tried turning on the touch events in chrome://flags, but it still doesn’t work. I’m using the latest 64 bit beta of chrome and Windows 10.

        Google, in general, and Chrome in particular is a PITA for touch.

        When you say you’ve turned on touch events, I assume you hard set Enable Touch Events to Enable?

        That’s usually what fixes it.

        Are you having any other apps giving you the same problem or is it just Chrome?

          Yes, I enabled touch events, but the main problem is that it won’t bring up the touch keyboard when I tap on a text field. I haven’t noticed any other issues with touch.

          Firefox works fine bringing up the keyboard when it’s supposed to and I haven’t had a problem with any other app.

            Hi Mark,
            I noticed weird Chrome problems on my SP3 as well. When I type when using Chrome, it auto-defaults me to the URL field – not the search field. I can duplicate this across 3 devices. I think Chrome simply isn’t very touch friendly.
