On screen keyboard with MS Access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a tablet in windows 10 tablet mode.

    I open MS access (latest version = 365) and open a form. when I touch a field in the form no touch keyboard is shown.

    whereas in excel if I select the formula bar the touch keyboard automatically opens.

    how to get the keyboard to open when selecting access form fields?

    Thanks

    edit:

    I found that if I touch and hold the task bar I can select show the keyboard button which at least lets me manually show the keyboard but it'd be much better if selecting a field automatically showed the touch keyboard
