    On-screen Keyboard

    What I see when I start my Surface 2 is the accessibility on-screen keyboard, even when I switch it off in the accessibility settings. It is not a big deal as I close it off every time I start S2, but I don't understand why it comes up as a default every time.

    On-screen Keyboard

    Yes, the on-screen keyboard popup windows is displayed when I login after a starting Surface 2, I do not run anything or set it up to be displayed. I have the type (not touch) keyboard and it is permanently attached and works just fine. Maybe a driver issue? or some error related to the keyboard?

    On-screen Keyboard

    I know this might be a silly question but lately I have been getting the On-screen keyboard coming out automatically whenever I start my Surface 2. Tried to find where I can switch it off but was unsuccessful. I have the Type keyboard always attached to the Surface 2. :confused::confused::confused:

    Help wanted: Finding, buying and connecting a wireless printer to a Surface RT 8.1

    Thanks for the link. You are right I found the HP 276DW is partially supported but not fully compatible. I guess I can live with that if at least I can print directly from Surface 2. Is this something that needs HP to apply for full compatibility or is it on the operating system side (Microsoft)?

    Help wanted: Finding, buying and connecting a wireless printer to a Surface RT 8.1

    Excellent information Rallicat. Is there a similar list for HP MFP inkjet printers compatibility with Surafce 2 (Windows 8.1 RT)? I am considering to replace my current Lexmark inkjet printer as it does not support Windows RT with HP Officejet Pro 276DW or HP Officejet Pro 8600 plus. I tried...

    My good/bad experiences with the Surface / wont be getting Surface 3

    I think Surface 2 is a better deal overall with a reasonable price point and MS office is included. I am quite happy with it, for real work on Windows OS I prefer using my laptop and Windows 7.

    Cant get skydrive app to work

    I just assumed the surface 2 has some issues with the router firewall so I thought to chose this option. In the router firewall settings it mentions the following: "The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) option lets you set a single computer on your network outside of the router. If you have a computer...

    Cant get skydrive app to work

    You are right, I guess I am not a tech savvy when it comes to setting routers and networks. When I returned the original router back I can access the web pages with my laptop but the Surface 2 is limited to some web pages and not all, any web page that needs user credentials (login) do not work...

    Cant get skydrive app to work

    Thanks very much hotphil for your suggestion. I determined that this was the problem after I changed the router and tried a different one. The root cause was a firewall application (IoBit) that I installed last week on my laptop that seems to have cause this issue, although my laptop worked...

    Cant get skydrive app to work

    After calling Microsoft support today I discovered that Surface 2 can access some web pages and not others. The network connection shows "Connected" and I can surface the web except any web site that has account information or user profile stored (e.g. Amazon or eBay). I was advised to change my...

    Cant get skydrive app to work

    I have the same problem, I have not used my surface 2 for over a week and when I started it today I found that I don't have new emails in my inbox and no access to the SkyDrive storage. I got a message that I need to check my Microsoft loggin account ??? When I try to do that my MS account page...

    Compatible Printers

    Tried several Lexmark drivers that would work with my Lexmark X7675 WiFi printer with no success. I can see the printer on the home network through Surface 2 but when I try to add it I get a message that the printer driver cannot run on the current Windows version (8.1 RT). It seems it is time...

    Compatible Printers

    Thank you Frank for the detailed illustration. I will try your method to add my Lexmark X7675 to my Surafce 2 devices, Windows 8.1 RT does currently have the driver for this printer model so I will try to use something close to it.

    Compatible Printers

    There is actually a Microsoft WHQL List to check if a device is compatible with Windows 8.1 and RT or not: Windows Compatibility Center On other threads on this forum some memebrs mentioned Epson NX330 and Brother HL-2270 DW will work with Surface 2

    Compatible Printers

    I am having the same problem printing from my Surface 2 to my wireless printer (Lexmark X7675). I tried printing through the wireless homegroup network and I get an error message that the printer does not work with this version of Windows RT.
