I just recently bought a new Samsung Note 10.1 tablet, and it is a tablet with a stylus. It has a text input mode where you can write the text by hand and it changes it into typed text. Think back to the old Windows CE devices, but handwriting recognition that actually works surprisingly well.
Anyways, the reason of this post is that, embarrasingly enough, once I switched to the handwriting recognition mode, I couldn’t find any way to switch back to the regular keyboard. It was hard to find a solution when I Googled for it, so I figured I would put it here to help out anyone else having issues.
So, long story short, to close the handwriting recognition keyboard and switch back to the regular typing keyboard on the Samsung Note 10.1, follow these steps (or just look at the picture below):
- Click and hold on the gear icon (the three little dots actually suggest that you can click and hold for more options)
- Click on the icon of the keyboard that pops up
