How to fix: “My keyboard covers up what I’m trying to write or select on Instagram or Facebook”

What to do when your Android keyboard covers up too much of an app.

In my case I noticed that whenever someone shared a Question box post over to Facebook, if you tried to write in the box the keyboard that pops up would cover the “Send” button.

If you tried to shrink the keyboard, it would kick you out of the entire Question box post and you’d have to start over.

So what are you supposed to do to be able to use your keyboard and still be able to submit an answer to the Question box on Instagram or Facebook?

The answer is surprisingly easy. You just shrink the keyboard size.

Follow the directions in the video below to see how to access the keyboard resizing option on Android.

This will solve the issue of the overlapping keyboard for Facebook and Instagram.

Don’t forget to leave a comment over on YouTube as a way of leaving a virtual tip!

Comments act as a way to tell YouTube to share the video more. The more the video is shared the more ad revenue I make off the video. Hence the tip. 🙂

Thanks as always for all your support! I love getting to do these kind of videos and tutorials.
