    Is there a way to login to Windows 10 with the Surface Book screen detached from the keyboard? The lock screen says press CTRL+ALT+DEL or Windows Button+Power Button. However there is no Windows Button and I can't get passed this screen to enter login information without attaching the keyboard. Any solutions?

    Hmmm... Dunno. I'm using Windows Hello so I don't even have a chance to worry about it.

    Just tried this out with my Surface Book detached clipboard. You should be able to swipe the screen upwards with your finger.

    Try that and let us know...

    I tried on mine. I can do a swipe, if not in tablet mode. In tablet mode, nothing. You need a keyboard (or the camera login).

    I can do everything in Tablet Mode, but I am on Build 10586. I wonder if you have found a real problem with the previous Builds of Windows 10?

    A new release comes out November 12, 2015, I believe.
