UWP - touch screen keyboard in desktop mode

Hi,

We have a UWP app which can run on both tablet mode and desktop mode. Our client wants to get the touch screen keyboard(or on screen keyboard) while using the app on both tablet mode and desktop mode, when there is a text input box. But the devices will always have a hardware keyboard attached to it. So in that case how do we implement it? Have seen work arounds, but not sure whether the app will get rejected when submitted for Windows Store.
These are some threads I have been referring to. Isn't it supported officially?

Thank you.

Hello,​

​​Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

From this post, you could follow Nico's suggestion to package your app as a desktop bridge app. Desktop bridge app is acceptable for Microsoft Store. But when submitting, you will need to fill in some additional information and the store team will review your submission. After passing the review, the app will show in the store.
