Help, my iPad keyboard is stuck in the middle of my screen!

One day I was using my iPad when I noticed my on-screen keyboard was showing up in the middle of my screen. At the time I had no idea why this happened, nor did I know how to fix it. And believe me, if this happens to you, you’ll want it fixed as quickly as possible.

Here’s what it looks like:

The reason you’ll want it fixed is that it makes it nearly impossible to type when the cursor on your display gets to the middle of the screen because the on-screen keyboard covers whatever you are typing.

Luckily, it’s pretty simple to fix. Just press and hold the button in the very bottom-right of the keyboard until a pop-up menu appears. Touch the Dock option and the on-screen keyboard obediently returns to the bottom of the screen.
