    Just spotted another ridiculous issue with wife's Surface: she suddenly lost the ability to MOVE ICONS AROUND THE F**** DESKTOP.

    This is getting more and more ridiculous.

    No, we don't have viruses circulating around our home network, and didn't install our systems from the same corrupted source.

    I basically use mine for coding etc. So my use case is quite different to yours.

    Not quite - we both type a lot of stuff. But my machine compared to yours makes this simple activity very difficult at times.

    Have the latest set of updates made a difference?

    Well, there was some update installed yesterday, and guess what - today I couldn't move my Calendar App around the desktop again, and then couldn't enter text into Edge's address bar, so... no.

    I'm reinstalling Windows with a fresh image off the MS servers when I have some time to waste. Not that I believe it'll help, given that my wife - as stressed many times before - has similar issues with her unit (e.g. not being able to move icons around the desktop...).

    If this doesn't help, I guess I'll just discard this POS, head to iStore, and turn my head away every time I see a Microsoft logo in the future.

    Afy, just take a look at this video of mine; it shows the scale of the problem. These are TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT units purchased from TWO DIFFERENT SOURCES (one from a Dutch MS online store, another from a local Polish store):



    Given this, how am I supposed to believe that me, my wife and my mother are the only three unlucky ones in the world?

    And no, I did not install any specific software on the two units that may impair its basic functionality in any way.

    I really don't know what to say. I guess I just got lucky.
    Maybe its time for you to try another product like the XPS 15 2 in 1.
