Build ID: 20160315153207

Steps to reproduce:

tap the Find (Ctrl+F) magnifying glass on a Windows 10 tablet

Actual results:

the Find bar pops up at the bottom, but when you bring up the on-screen keyboard to type in it, it covers it and you can no longer see it which pretty much means that you can no longer use it

Expected results:

The Find bar should not be covered by the on-screen keyboard

I just saw a post about this on reddit and a user came up with I think the perfect solution. I quickly made an image showing what the solution should be (assuming it's possible). Instead of moving the find bar to the top, simply have it stack on top of the virtual keyboard. Surely this is possible?
