    Surface Pro 6 vs. SP3 docking station

    I'm about to order a Surface Pro 6 for my Ladyfriend. She needs two docking stations -- one for home one for office. Am I correct that SP6 cannot use SP3 docking station? Thanks, Russ

    Constant 'Low Disk Space' error...

    Cripp -- Still puzzled. Is that drive listed in Device Manager? It would be listed if it's an SD card, in which case you could just reformat it. If not, it's a partition on the SSD, and you could delete that partition and add the space to the C-drive partition. Russ

    Surface Pro 6 Is A Little Misleading

    Jott -- Well, I certainly saw that one coming when I read OP's complaint about being 65. I'm only 80, but am still learning new stuff every day. When I grow up, I wanna be like you. Take care, Russ

    Constant 'Low Disk Space' error...

    What is the D: drive? Is it an SD card or a partition on the internal SSD? Russ

    Anyone care to comment on an SPro (1st gen) and Windows 10 usability?

    Tiberian, et al -- Upgraded my SP1 to 1809 with no problems and (almost) no issues. Only minor issue was that I had to Reset my Weather app. I knew that was coming from my Insider machines. Every machine I have upgraded to 1809, including today, needed to have the Weather app Reset. I...

    Anyone care to comment on an SPro (1st gen) and Windows 10 usability?

    Tiberian -- Sorry to hear the news about your Power Cover. Good choice -- take your money back and move on. There's another one out there somewhere. Win10 1809 is available today. I just started a download onto a USB drive because I have several machines to upgrade. It will download while...

    Anyone care to comment on an SPro (1st gen) and Windows 10 usability?

    Tiberian -- First, the important news: The stylus works! Not sure why that is startling, except that I had never used it, so didn't know. I see Ladyfriend use hers all the time on her SPro3, so I know what it's supposed to do (sorta). It will be in the mail tomorrow. My mailbox is down by...

    Anyone care to comment on an SPro (1st gen) and Windows 10 usability?

    Tiberian -- Glad to hear that you got the SPro1. Sounds like it is in good condition and you got a good deal. Some stuff: 1 - Stylus: I think there is a driver issue between the Wacom stylus and Surface device. I still have the one that came with my SP1, but have never used it. My Ladyfriend...

    Solved Peculiar issue

    Hugh -- Glad to hear you solved it. If that keyboard were mine, I would give it the "throw" test: defined as how far back into the woods can I throw it. Take care, Russ

    Anyone care to comment on an SPro (1st gen) and Windows 10 usability?

    Tiberian -- Welcome to the forum. I am still using my SPro1, except on weekends when I lend it to my dinosaur. I have, essentially, the device you are considering: 4GB Ram, 128 SSD, I5 CPU. I do have a TypeCover, and really prefer it, as I am an old-fashioned (or maybe just old) typist and...

    I can't get windows update to find 1803

    Macmee -- No idea. I used it once on my SPro and have used it on other machines with no problems. Russ

    I can't get windows update to find 1803

    Macmee -- You can use the Media Creation tool (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209) to download the ISO for 1803, then use it to upgrade. Good luck, Russ

    Hello, I'm Stupid, I disabled all services in MS Config

    If you have or can borrow a USB keyboard, that may allow you to access Task Manager. Good luck, Russ

    Surface Pro (2017) as desktop replacement?

    Bubba -- Absolutely! I have her on a regular backup routine and, especially, when she returns from a China trip. I maintain a full backup of her system here. With a few tweaks, I can boot her system on a spare desktop here in my shop. Between those backups and cloud data storage, I could...
