I have a windows7 PC.

Currently it wll automatically be in Tablet-PC mode if no keyboard is conneted.

With tablet-PC mode I mean for example, that I can enter a password with a pointer device (mouse, touchscreen, graphics tablet)

However as soon as I connect a keyboard this option/feature disappears.

Is there any way to force windows 7 to allow password entries via a pointer device even if there is a keyboard connected?
