    Other than this group/ forum, where can I get insights from veteran users on Evolution / Improvements in OneNote through 2010, 2013, 2016/19?

    Of course, but with MS things are always subject to change.. Microsoft Brings OneNote 2016 Back from the Dead - Thurrott.com Is there a more recent DIRECTIONAL update?

    Any USB 3.0 to GigE Adapter & 3 port Hub that works flawlessly for you?

    Any USB 3.0 to GigE Adapter & 3 port Hub that works flawlessly for you? I have one and it works well at times and at times it sucks, especially if trying to use the USB 3.0 ports on it / after which the GigE goes poof! If anyone has better experiences or some nuance to share.. open to...

    Other than this group/ forum, where can I get insights from veteran users on Evolution / Improvements in OneNote through 2010, 2013, 2016/19? I've been one of the earlier users of Groove (way back in 2005) and OneNote (since Office 2007). I am currently still using OneNote 2010 and did a Side by...

    USB speed and possible issues?

    I am noticing this off late. My copying between 2 USB 3 HDDs (connected Wirecutter recommended powered USB hub) was fast at 60-80 M but when copy OUT from SP3 SSD to these HDDs was slow. I wonder why! Update: Is this realistic - External Disc Performance on the Surface Pro 3

    Is it possible to boot from MicroSD Card?

    What about 3rd party Micro SD 3.0 readers? I'd prefer to buy and keep a single Micro SD / XD in addition to external HDD.. instead having USB Flash/pen drive as well as Micro SD cards. They are both kind of redundant storage (needed badly for tiny portability) and cost higher than HDDs and are...

    Is it possible to boot from MicroSD Card?

    And this is dependent on BIOS/ UEFI of said machine, e.g. S Pro? or Windows only? But USB flash drives are not Fixed drives, so why not Micro SD cards? Are there any Micro SD readers that make/ can make Micro SD cards look like Flash drives?

    Guide: All About Battery Life

    And for anyone who said we were complaining too much about SP3 firmware & the funkly flashing that started.. MS is new to driving their own hardware. Firmware people have been hired but its not a 20+ year old smooth running team; and even those make mistakes. So, pushing issues about firmware...

    HiDPI Retina external Display thread for Surface Pro 3 - QHD UHD 4K Monitors or TVs

    I'll PM you some links. The problem lies with the new issues around HiDPi displays, their needs of newer display protocols {HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4 etc} & lack of clarity/ standards implementation of these between products/ cables. Most of such threads I have encountered are on Desktop/ Workstation/...

    8.1 Recovery image...

    Intent is not to go this way, especially not on the forums.. But given the failure to download it via MS site, I do wish there was something else out there.

    HiDPI Retina external Display thread for Surface Pro 3 - QHD UHD 4K Monitors or TVs

    So you'd rather allow these threads to float around the SP3 forum but not let the knowledge assimilate. We could have people all SP3 + External Display related issues & adapters in one thread and everytime a solution is found, add that DISPLAY & its MECHANISM & working to the Initial post...
