I just loaded a Greek language keyboard to my laptop, but the only way to access it is in tablet mode. For some reason the keyboard keeps disappearing and I can't get it back.
 
Ah I see. Is it only in Word? Or is it in all that it isn't working?

You may want to try the following, in order, to see if it will get it working...

1. Uninstall the keyboard driver.

2. Uninstall synaptics touchpad driver and application.

3. Reboot, allowing the computer to reinstall the drivers. If it doesn't reinstall any of the drivers on its own after the reboot, then you would need to install them yourself. However, it is best to try the reboot first.

4. Now open up a few different programs to test it in.
 
Try these....

In Windows 10...

To add a keyboard language...

1. Click the "Start Start" menu and select "Settings".
2. Select "Time & language".
3. Click "Region & language" in the left column.
4. Select "Add a language".
5. Choose the language you want to add and select a country for the language.

To set a default keyboard layout...

1. Click the "Start Start" menu and select "Settings".
2. Select "Time & language".
3. Click "Region & language" in the left column.
4. Under "Languages" click the language you want as default and click "Set as default".

To switch keyboard layouts...

Option 1...

1. Click the "language name" in the lower right of the screen (taskbar).
2. Select the keyboard layout you want to use.

Option 2...

Press and hold the "Windows" key while you press the "Space bar" to change the language.

Thank you, but I have the language loaded and working correctly. The problem is that the on-screen keyboard disappeared and I haven't been able to get it back. I've closed and reopened Word, and switched from tablet mode to laptop mode and then back and can't get the keyboard to re-appear.
