Plex Media Center on-screen keyboard not working

Plex Media Center virtual keyboard

Plex Media Center has 10 foot interface and can be fully controlled with a remote. However, with some setups, on-screen virtual keyboard may not respond to arrow key presses on a remote making it impossible to enter any text without a keyboard.

Solution which worked for me was:

  • Open file C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Plex\userdata\guisettings.xml
  • Find following lines:
    <input>
            <enablemouse>false</enablemouse>
            <remoteaskeyboard>false</remoteaskeyboard>
    </input>
  • Replace above with:
    <input>
            <enablemouse>false</enablemouse>
            <remoteaskeyboard>true</remoteaskeyboard>
    </input>
