New Dell Latitude 10 on screen keyboard for BitLocker pin

July 16, 2013 9 comments

Not sure where I have been or if this is new with the A06 BIOS Update (07/10/2013).

Previously (before this update) if you enabled BitLocker you had to have a USB Keyboard connected to input the pin, but now you can use the on screen keyboard to input the pin.  Simply AWESOME!  I have been waiting for this since the release of Windows 8.

Thank you DELL!!!!
