There has been a persistent issue with my WSA installation.
Many people reported online to have faced the issue. But, no one seems to have found a solution,

Issue: keyboard works perfectly with all native windows app, but not with any WSA apps. The problem occurs with the official WSA and the modded WSA versions alike. The problem is persistent and repeatable. The only workaround seems to be using the copy-paste way to enter any text. No clean solution yet.

Please suggest a fix,

A couple of things I ask clients about, does the Notebook have touchscreen and does the onscreen keyboard work?
