This behaviour depends on the application you use, and so, on the way developer(s) programmed their applications. The application may provide an option to use enter as send, but if it doesn't, then I think you can't do much about this...

Press the TAB/right arrow key then hit ENTER that works for me

Looks like the External Keyboard Helper app lets me switch layouts of an external USB keyboard on my Nexus 7, no root access needed.

I have the same issue with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and a bluetooth keyboard. I was able to install Gboard (google keyboard from the app store) and this fixed the problem.

You can accomplish this with Samsung Dex. What you'll need: A Compatible Samsung smartphone. As of the time of this post, this includes the S8, S9, S10, Note8, and Note9. Either the Dex Pad or Dex Station to dock your phone and connect it to an external display, mouse, and keyboard.

Switching to any other keyboard application as the default should solve this problem, for example SwiftKey. The shortcut exists in the Samsung keyboard and is not possible to turn off.

It is simple to remove on-screen keyboard when you have Bluetooth keyboard. To remove on-screen keyboard, follow 5 simple steps. Go to "Settings" Select "Language and Input" Select "Default Samsung keyboard" under "Keyboards and input methods" section Turn off "Use on-screen keyboard" push "Setup input methods" button

Hold the key Ctrl and  ↓  on your keyboard. Two little opaque circles will appear near your mouse. Hold down the left button of your mouse and move those little circles. It will zoom in-and-out just using two fingers.

It's quite an easy task. See the source of the InputDevices system package. Or get the ready to use Polish programmers external keyboard layout plugin from there: https://sites.google.com/site/polishhardwarekbd/ You'll find the app source there as well. Regards.

For anyone who comes across this via a search I found these options... Polaris Office's word processing program implements undo that works via control-Z on my Galaxy Note 3 using a Bluetooth keyboard. The JotterPad X text editor implements undo and redo that works fine via on-screen controls. The JotterPad X app description on the Google Play store claims ...

After a very long ordeal, several trips to several different Apple stores and basic trial and errors, I have found the solution as I blogged here: http://eduncan911.com/technology/hardware/google-nexus-10-and-apple-wireless-keyboard.html The situation is that Apple made 3 different bluetooth Apple Wireless Keyboards, noted by years: 2007, 2009 and 2011. ...

If the kernel wasn't compiled with /proc/config.gz support turned on, then the only sure way is to look at the source tree that was used to compile the kernel you're running. Copy the config.h file into your own source tree (or just use the original source tree) and run make menuconfig to set any new options you want.

I don't know about keyboard shortcuts for answering a call on Android. What you can do is to connect a USB mouse and use mouse gestures that replicate touch input, it is cumbersome but it should work. I've been doing that on a tablet with a similar problem.

You can do this with Tasker if you are rooted. An explanation is here: http://www.pocketables.com/2012/09/using-tasker-and-external-keyboard-helper-to-better-the-bluetooth-keyboard-experience.html . If you don't want to pay for Tasker, or you are not rooted, I have done something nearly as good with Llama, which is free on the Play Store. Tell Llama to ...

Use your slimport to charge and HDMI and get a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, that is the optimal configuration. The only dumb thing LG didn't predicted is to turn off the phone display when you are using an external.

I solved this by installing Termux, which is a "terminal emulator". This particular terminal emulator can install gtypist for you, which is a superb, well thought out free and open source typing tutor, well-known in the linux world. gtypist is very easy to use, and you only need to know two Termux commands. Just install Termux from the Play store, open a ...

Not having MHL is not problematic. Most recent Android phone will be able to act as host and therefore talk with a docking station with DisplayLink technology inside. You simply need the app and an OTG cable. You are correct that the USB standard, until Type-C, only allows a device to be charged, not the host. However, some phones do charge whilst being ...

I doubt this is possible. From Android Developer Center (Google's official site): Key code constant: Home key. This key is handled by the framework and is never delivered to applications. And the Home key on a generic QWERTY keyboard is mapped to the Android "home" button, so it's treated the same as the real home button. You can try modifying /...

The solution involved deactivating all keyboards from the on-screen keyboard options. After doing so, the only one that was left (as on-screen) was also the only one left in physical. Even SwiftKey Swedish (not External keyboard helper) now works. With several possible keyboards in on-screen, I still cannot select which one is default (the options show up ...

It turns out that my device is not HDMI-compatible and will not transmit over that adapter (or any other, apparently). Props to Robert for finding a (generic?) listing over here: https://en.everybodywiki.com/List_of_devices_with_video_output_over_USB-C (In case anybody else is googling this and can't find a solution, I highly recommend checking your device ...

In Android 6 (aka Android M and Android Marshmallow), Win+N works.

This can be set by the "Language and Input" menu in the "Physical Keyboard" sub-section. Touch the name of your paired keyboard, and touch the "Set Keyboard Type" button. Scroll down to "English (US), Dvorak Style" and touch it.

Yes, I had the same issue, it never worked for any PC USB Keyboards, except the one which we bought from DOMO, that nCase K6. That K6 worked perfectly (even to my PC). But a PC USB mouse worked on my DOMO Slate X3G. Buy a nCase K6 or, preferably you could install USB Host Controller from Play Store, as said by the first answer.. That should fix your issues.

Anysoft keyboard from Google Play Store allows you to hide the onscreen keyboard automatically.

If your tablet doesn't provide a USB host port, you'll need an USB OTG adapter to connect your keyboard. There are many cheap USB OTG adapters on eBay and other electronics shops.

There is a way, actually! By editing system files in a rooted device through ADB. These two pages have the answer: First, http://source.android.com/devices/input/key-layout-files.html explains how to edit the files that map any key scan codes of your USB keyboard (or even joystick buttons and the device's physical and touch buttons) to standard Android key ...

After endless frustration with this issue, I have finally solved it without rooting the device. The solution for me has been External Keyboard Helper Pro, a $2.45 app on the play store (a demo version is also available). It detects when a bluetooth keyboard connects, and brings up a pop-up menu allowing you to select "External Keyboard" with two quick taps ...

This can be due to a number of reasons: 1) You have a layout conflict between the OS and the Bluetooth keyboard, as pointed out by the previous answerer. Resolve this by going into the "Physical Keyboard Settings" option in the settings of whatever 3rd-party keyboard app you may have as default, or if you use the inbuilt soft keyboard, go into Settings->...

OTG needs to be supported at the kernel level and you device does not appear to have that with stock kernel as you can see from cursory Google search. Samsung S5 mini supports Gamepad through OTG? offers a way of flashing a custom kernel to override this limitation pointing to a XDA thread. You would need root to attempt this Perhaps some videos which ...
