    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    I don't know if that's even the same firmware since it doesn't have fans, though.

    I'm an idiot. I wrote SP7, I meant SP6... I found the latest firmware. It says Surface - Firmware 11.8.70.3626.

    What's the firmware number hidden under? I thought it was under firmware, UEFI, but the number I have there is 235.3192.768.0. So a different format. Also SP7, i7.

    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    After the firmware update a few days ago it seems like the fan on my SP7 is running almost all the time, at high speed. And the device is far too hot for the 10-18 % CPU I'm using. It's not even hot, June was a lot hoter here in Norway, so that's not the problem.

    Incredibly slow SSD performance

    I have a problem here. When I save a file to the SSD (even a small file, like a Word document), it can take 10 seconds! The program I'm saving in, locks up, and only works again when the save is done. And a few times today I saved files in one of my special work programs (around the same size as...

    Windows 10 1903 update being pushed out to Surface Pro 6's yet?

    I updated yesterday, and it fixed my problems with several minutes wait for the touch screen keyboard. Which is good. But the thing I really like is the slider for backlight. The old version, with clicking and going from 0-25-50-75-100 % was hopeless, because my wife complains when I'm reading...

    Touch keyboard popping up after several minutes, partly locking Surface

    Nothing helped, until yesterday, when I did the May update. Suddenly it seems the slowdown is gone. I don't much like the new "light" theme on the on screen keyboard, but I'm not touching it now that it works. ;)

    Display still adaptive with the adaptiveness turned off

    I espescially see this when looking at dark webpages (not darkweb pages, dark webpages...like in design...like...oh, you get it!). The screen will dim, and wen going back to something lighter it takes 10-15 seconds before it is back to where it should be. Anybody else have that problem? It's...

    Is Windows Defender Enough

    I haven't used a third party (including constantly running Malwarebytes) for at least ten years, probably more. Never had an infection on my main computer. I have had a few on my various VM's, but I just go back to an earlier image. Of course frequenting the web's more shady parts is begging for...

    Touch keyboard popping up after several minutes, partly locking Surface

    If it was only seconds to a minute it wouldn't be much of a problem, but as I asid it's a lot longer for me. I only use the touch keyboard maybe 2-3 times a week, so it will be days between use, but even when it's less then a day (usually around 20-something hours, I almost only use this when...

    Touch keyboard popping up after several minutes, partly locking Surface

    Does anybody else have this? When I touch a text field of some type, the keyboard doesn't come up at once if it's been a while (hours) since I last used it. It takes several minutes, and during that time touch is partly not working. I can't click on web links, and I have to use the scroll bar to...

    Upgrade to Win10 Pro

    Not in Norway, as far as I have seen.

    Upgrade to Win10 Pro

    The question isn't how to upgrade. It's why the "#%&"#%& (think about an angry Donald! Duck, not Trump!) an expensive device like the Pro 6, especially higher end models (my i7 512 GB case in point) is not Pro from the start! It's just dumb and cheap of Micro$oft, even if the device is great.
