    Disable password login on type-cover wakeup?

    Search for power options -> change plan settings -> change advanced power settings At the top there are options for requiring password on wake up. Are those switched to off?

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    Strange little niggle: since updating to 10162 I have SurfaceTypeCover_01 listed under other devices in device manager and if I ask it to search for drivers it cannot find one. System appears fully up to date.

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    I finally installed 10158 with an ISO. I had downgraded to 10074 from 10130 and the update was showing but it flat refused to install. Liking what I am seeing so far.

    Currently on 10130, check for updates and can't see 10158. On fast ring

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    What a nightmare this build is. Once I finally got over the 18% not updating malarkey I now have 10122 installed. Unfortunately it seems worse than the previous build: it loses wifi connection when waking up, the touch keyboard refuses to appear at times, battery life seems very poor and I get...

    It sounds like you have tablet mode enabled

    Sorry, I just don't see it. I clipped the same page in both ie11 and Spartan/Edge and flicked between them, maybe I am blind but I see no difference.

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    That happened to me once since updating to 10074. I had to reboot by holding power button down and then slide to switch off. Has so far been working since. Is there a way to not use the handwriting panel as default ie. to just bring up virtual keyboard? I know I can change it every time but it...

    Games List for SP3?

    I have been playing GTA 5 on pretty high settings. Admittedly this was via Steam streaming. Works incredibly well.

    Elder Scrolls Online on SP3

    You can add non steam games to be streamed. They work just the same. I stream from my main pc when the other half wants my company as she watches some mind numbing reality show. o_O

    Drawings that you have done with your surface

    Not strictly a drawing but its what I use my SP3 for. Work in progress- built with Zbrush, rendered in keyshot. Getting used to new hard surface modelling features so decided to make a Star Wars Snowspeeder - this is the canopy.

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    So I took the plunge this evening and installed the latest build. All went rather slowly but eventually I was fully updated. The only problem I have is my wifi speed has decreased dramatically. Whereas I previously hit speeds around 20 Mbps I am now lucky if I hit 3 Mbps. Has anybody else had...

    Surface Pro 3, Falling Apart after 6 months of mild use

    Just send it back in. The metal strip was beginning to come off from one side of my stand and I sent it in. It was replaced with a brand new one
