    Which wireless mouse should I get?

    Good evening, I sometimes use my Surface Pro 4 in bed and have a few games that I play, the cover keyboard track pad thing is no good for gaming so I need a mouse. Should I get a bluetooth mouse and use the built in bluetooth on the Surface or does the pen already use that connection? Or...

    How do I make my Surface Pro 4 Wi-Fi invisible?

    Hi, I've switched my modem/router to not broadcast SSID, I can get my Surface to connect to it but it made me think that my Surface is probably broadcasting itself. For extra Security I want to make the Wi-Fi built into the Surface invisible if possible? Earlier I had someone else's phone...

    Unknown phone on my network?

    Hi, I'm using a Surface Pro 4 with all the latest updates. When I click on the File Explorer icon and then go to Network, I can see my home PC but also a phone which is not my phone. I connect to the internet via a wireless router/modem that my broadband provider gave me. Does it mean that the...

    How to control Desktop from Pro 4.

    I have a desktop running Windows 10, but the PC itself does not have wireless, it is plugged into a Virgin Router (Super Hub) though so I'm pretty sure I can just use that. What free software can I use or is there some paid software that is really good? Once it is connected, I will be watching...

    Surface Pro 4 I5 4gb Throttle Results

    It's good that we have got to the point we can game on something the size of a small magazine, I honestly could never have hoped to do this in my lifetime. I remember sitting on my bed in the summer sun reading old sci-fi books and dreaming that one day there would be something about the size of...

    Surface Pro 4 I5 4gb Throttle Results

    There is no way I would play a FPS on this Surface Pro 4 (i5, 8Gb RAM). I have played some turn based squad style games on Steam and it was ok with medium graphics. Civ5 was also ok at a lower resolution, hidden object games and low end stuff are no problem as well, but they are pretty much just...

    Occasionally when charging, Pro 4 gets hot enough to activate fan.

    OK thanks, long as I know it's not abnormally heating up.

    Viber app to tiny to use and can't make bigger.

    Hi, I added Viber (it's like Whatsapp, only better) to my Pro 4 a few days ago and it only ever loads in very small. The box is about one sixth the size of the screen and text is so small it's barely readable. I've looked at the options in the app but none of them mention changing font size or...

    Windows Hello less reliable after update

    Well dang, I've noticed a small number of times if I close the keyboard when the screen is on or off and then open it again, sometimes it does nothing when I open the keyboard and press a key. I sometimes have to press the power button once for it to come back on. I have not spotted a pattern...

    How do i make steam games do this resolution?

    Ok, thanks, I've found an option in the Nvidia control panel that lest me force my main PC into displaying any resolution I want. Going to read up more about it and give it a try.

    Occasionally when charging, Pro 4 gets hot enough to activate fan.

    This has only happened 3 times in about 2 weeks. Most the time I'm at a table so end up having the charger plugged in as I'm using the Pro 4 and there are no issues. I've noticed if I use the tablet when not plugged in and the battery drops to around 20% and I then stop using it and just put it...

    How do i make steam games do this resolution?

    I've been testing running (streaming) games from my main PC using Steam to this Pro 4. It works fine but the resolution only goes up to my monitor res (1440p). When I go to video options in game there is no option higher than the PC monitor res. How do I get more options so I can get a match to...

    Windows Hello less reliable after update

    It might be just a reboot hing then. I wonder if for some people it's just going to sleep after the update rather than full reboot. I think you have to hold down the power button for about 30 seconds or something for a proper reboot but very not 100% sure on the actual time. -edit- or choose the...

    Popping Sound - Hardware Or Software?

    My Pro 4 used to pop, especially using EDGE due to it auto loading video adverts. I just ignored it but today i must admit i have not heard it so some update or other must have fixed it. I will report back here if I hear it again.
