    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    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...

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    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...

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

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    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.

    Lucky you, then. Or - all you ever do on the device is watch cartoons, but I'm not implying that. Btw. in the previous post I meant "since 2015".

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    I don't really see a point, given that I have observed some of the bugs in my unit on the two other units we have in the family. How many corrupted system images there can be in the world? Have you seriously never had a problem with, say, copying text from Edge? It's a commonly known bug that's...

    Are there any SP5 models WITHOUT lightbleed?

    Don't look at it? Sure. Another brilliant suggestion: just don't buy anything from Microsoft, that P-O-S company which has the nerve to actually deliberately release a product with all of the batches having this serious flaw, and then not even admitting to it. To stay on topic, though: wife's...

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    Yeah, as if anyone ever cared about some damn Creators Update. The differences I personally noticed after installing it were marginal and not even worth the hassle (update) - by that I mean the contacts button (which I immediately disabled) and some useless transfer-stuff-from-smartphone-to-PC...

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    Thanks for the suggestion. Perhaps I didn't emphasize enough the fact that the mentioned bugs were noted in three different units of Surface Pro 2017, sourced from different places (two from a local electronics chain, but different stores, and one from the official Dutch MS online store). The...

    Never-ending myriad of bugs

    My background: I'm a 26-year old translator. I've been into PCs since I was about 8. I vaguely remember the blinking white cursor on a white background in MS DOS, and my dad laughing at Microsoft's claims that their new systems would be free from freezes and such. Until Windows XP, which - as...

    Scan and OCR of hand written documents on paper

    I personally recommend ABBYY Finereader.

    Best protective accessories?

    I got the Maroo leather case from Microsoft Store, and am pleased with its quality. It doesn't offer "panzer" protection, so I'm not sure it would suit you if you're really good with damaging things, though it's fine for protection from light to moderate rain and showing off in public without...

    Surface pro screen goes black

    Sounds like a major issue... Try re-imaging the device maybe (in the emergency mode, or whatever it's called), and see if it helps.

    How do you tell if it's terribly slow?
