Original topic:

Galaxy Tab S7 - does it support wired keyboard via USB OTG connection?

I've tried connecting an external keyboard, which I've used successfully via an OTG adapter on my old Tab S2, to my Tab S7 adding a micro-usb to Usb-c adapter, but the keyboard does not seem to be detected. Does the Tab S7 support wired keyboards connected via an OTG adapter - just wondering if I just need to get a direct USB to usb-c otg adapter)?

Any guidance would be gratefully received. Thanks.

Update:  @xSteveuk jogged my memory that I had an OTG  USB-A to USB-c connector that came with my S9 phone - I tried that on the S7 tablet and it worked - it seems the combination of the USB-A to micro-usb connector (I had previously used with a Tab S2) paired with a micro-usb to usb-c adaptor is not the equivalent I thought it would be!

@MikeCW Hello, do you have the option Show keyboard on screen activated? It is located in General Administration / Physical keyboard.

Hi - I've tried with that option both activated and deactivated - the "Physical keyboard" status persists as 'not connected'.
