I am using a keyboard with my android phone (connected via a usb otg cable)

I have noted that hitting SPC or RET when the phone is locked takes me to the unlock screen where i have to enter a pattern.

Is there a keyboard shortcut means for entering a pattern?

If not plan B is to switch to a PIN - but I quite like the pattern, hence the question..

    Can you not use a mouse?

  • yes you could do that - but in this particular scenario, i.e. a wired usb keyboard using up the only usb otg connection, I can't do that. I am also interested to know if it is possible. I do have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo and that does work with the dongle plugged into the otg cable, however on that keyboard all the keycaps are moved around as I am a colemak fiend. a little complicated i know..
