    ​did you sort out the keyboard problem? I'm waiting to upgrade my linx 7

    Me too! Any luck with the keyboard?

    Sorry, no luck at all!

    I've done it (Linx 10). Updated via Windows Update.

    Think the latest drivers I added (network/chipset) from the linxtablets forum caused me problems - a suggestion from there to change Sleep settings with powercfg -h on caused me even more problems - errors and constant reboots. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/linx-8-59-99-linx-10-110-buy-now-refurbs-3monkeys-ebay-2258467?p=25722371

    Did a Restore which deleted many of my programs and Metro apps (bit of a pain to reinstall them, time-wise) but it works perfectly now. No problems with the Linx 10 being unresponsive from hibernate after the Restore. The capacitive button works (some were having problems with it a while back).

    Changed the privacy settings in Settings (all sorts of ad permissions are on by default, see here) http://www.howtogeek.com/224616/30-ways-windows-10-phones-home/

    Disk Cleanup to delete Windows.old. Changed Power & Sleep settings, and the default storage device (as I have a large MicroSD card).

    The only issue I can see most griping about is the rotation but that's an easy fix. Mentioned here by cloud1: linxtablet.co.uk/vie…php?f=42&t=815&sid=df3fed55adc9b4af6e4bbd5c0f2b9da2&start=20

    I downloaded the linx windows 10 driver pack from … I downloaded the linx windows 10 driver pack from page.php?p=win10centrev2I extracted the zip file to a folderThen I right clicked kxaccel-1.0.13.20-win8-x64.exe (or long pressed if you're using touch screen), then chose Run as administrator and completed the installNext I double clicked on kionix_sensor_orientation.reg to import the registry stuffI then rebooted and logged inFinally I swiped in from the right to find the "rotation lock" option had appeared at the bottom in orange. I pressed it to disable the lock and then I could use all 4 orientations 100% successfully, just like out of the box 8.1.Ignore the .bat file and sensordiagnostictool_0_7_0.exe



    Can see some are complaining about the keyboard dock, I don't have one, so can't give any insights there.

    hi,
    Got the keyboard back!
    hold down on the bottom taskbar and wait for pop up box then select "show keyboard touch button" the keyboard will then be in your taskbar to use.
