10. Follow up:

The "full" story. Last night about 7PM my new keyboard/mouse was delivered. I set it up and connected it via Bluetooth to my computer, my phone, and a tablet.

Everything worked fine, for an hour. Then apps started closing on the phone and tablet. I restarted both a few times, the problem wasn't fixed. I couldn't use either of the email apps I have, and a couple of other apps.

So I turned off the new keyboard and got out the old one. Boxed the new stuff and was going to take it back to Best Buy. But all evening the problem STILL persisted! My thought was there was software in the keyboard that screwed up the phone and tablet software, and I might have to reset them entirely (something you DON'T want to do, you lose all your setting, phone numbers, etc.)

I checked online to see if anyone else had the same problem with the keyboard, nothing.

So I went to bed grumpy thinking I had a nasty job ahead of me.

Woke up REAL early, signed on to DU and read this. THANKS!! I went to the link and followed their advice (I don't have webview, though) - upgraded Google Chrome on everything.

Bingo! It worked. All the problems were gone.

That was a bizarre coincidence, Google having the problem right around the same time I started using the keyboard!

As Joe Biden would say, "thank you, thank you, thank you!"
