    Can Pro 3 Type Cover be used with Pro 2?

    I planned to mostly use it at home. However, I will probably opt for the original type cover, since the Pro 3 version will not be available in my country until Aug 31. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Can Pro 3 Type Cover be used with Pro 2?

    Subject line basically tells it all. I own a Pro 2 and have no plans to upgrade (until a possible Pro 4 comes around). I've read that the Pro 3 Type Cover is an improvement over the Pro 2 Type Cover, so I wondered if it would fit with the Pro 2. I'm aware of the difference in size. Currently I...

    Has anyone fixed Chrome?

    I think IE works fine with the SP2, but I just downloaded Opera just to compare. Looks very nice indeed. It's been a few years since last time I used Opera, and they've evolved into a much more simplistic browser. On my desktop PCs I use Chrome. However, I'm looking for ways to reduce my...

    Google Hangout

    You could try this one, GooglePlus app for Windows in the Windows Store, although it's not a "genuine" Google product, and hasn't exactly received rave reviews. I think there is an IM+ available too.

    Using Logitech Ultrathin T630 Mouse with SP2

    To each his own, I suppose. I can't compare the Arc Surface to the Logitech, but after having gotten used to the Arc, I find it very intuitive and the scroll function is excellent. And yes, it packs very well.

    WiFi Won't Stay Connected or Randomly Becomes "Limited"

    Jrapdx, I have the same router. DIR-655. My SP2 had a problem with wifi and bluetooth disconnect, usually after a few hours on idle. This would happen quite regularly, at least once a day. After the March update, it hasn't happened again. My internet connection is "relatively" slow, 15/15 Mbps...

    March update brings new WiFi driver

    I've had the problem that the Wifi and Bluetooth Connection has died, mostly after a few hours without use, and I have had to restart the SP2 (I've tried various power settings). The first test after the update seems to suggest that the problem has been resolved. I mostly run my SP2 with power...

    Surface Pro 2 Charge indicator

    I second Booch here, and I understand that this feature (light goes out when fully charged) is from a recent firmware or software update (which, contrary to many, had no negative impact on my Pro 2 system.

    SP2 will not turn off digital signature

    I have run the normal procedure to make my SP2 turn off requiring digitally signed drivers. However, when I come to the last window (where I am prompted to press 7 or F7), it will not respond. It turns itself off after a while, but if I try to install an unsigned driver, the usual error message...

    Not "allowed" to disable unsigned signature enforcement

    I've done this on my desktop PC with Win8 without problems. On the Surface Pro 2, I got as far as the "Advanced Boot Options" screen, from which there are a number of options one can choose with F keys or number keys. However, the screen is totally unresponsive to touch or keyboard. Any...

    IE won't work properly with Gmail?

    Hi all, got my RT-64GB yesterday. After playing around with it and getting used to it, there is really only one potential show-stopper for me. I use Gmail and G+ a lot, including the "Hangout" function (aka Chat). It seems to me that neither version of the RT's Internet Explorer can handle the...
