On-Screen Keyboard - make it go away!!!!

Please help me disable the on-screen keyboard pop up. It happens in incognito mode as well (that is what previous answers suggested). It only happens in chrome when I click in a text box. It is incredibly frustrating as I have a keyboard and it just started happening a few days ago.

what happens if you close  it ?
If you're talking about the the Windows on screen keyboard then try 

  • Select “Start” > “Settings“.
  • Choose “Ease of Access“.
  • Select “Keyboard“.
  • Set “On-Screen Keyboard” to “On” or “Off” as desired.

It disappears when I close it, but if I click in another text box it reappears. It takes up half my screen. It is not the windows keyboard. It is only happening when I am in Chrome and click in a text box.

I ditto this issue.  I have not tried to reinstall Chrome yet, Running Version 68.0.3440.84 (Official Build) (64-bit).  I have tried several suggestions on the web nothing is affecting the keyboard.  There is a regedit to disable the touch keyboard, that is turned on. multiple settings have changed within chrome, even the chrome flags, resetting chrome, and starting a new profile.  Keyboard only appears under chrome, no other windows application including IE. Also, a little tidbit... If the keyboard is on the screen and you click on a non-chrome window, the keyboard will close until you click on chrome again.

A quick update:  I just logged into a new profile with admin privileges.  Same issues occurs.  I uninstalled chrome, restarted the machine, logged into the new profile and reinstalled chrome from google.com.  Issue still occurs.  Not sure how much cleaner a install can get?
