    Solved New Book 2 Owner - Which Windows 10 Version?

    I own a Surface Book 2 that I just picked up off of eBay and a SP 6 and can't figure out why the feature updates on the Surface Pro are showing Windows 10 version 1809 but on the Book 2 it's on 1803 and I did a bunch of downloads earlier this afternoon. Shouldn't my Book 2 also be on 1809?

    I broke down and punted my iPad Pro 12.9 3rd Gen due to a couple of issues on a recent business trip and bought a SP 6 from Best Buy. What are some tweaks I need to do to it out of the box? On previous SP models I had notes in One Note see below for tweaks but not sure these still apply?

    External Monitor DPI Looks Great!

    Some guy was posting some stuff earlier today about software called Displayfusion and so I gave it a try since it comes with a free 30 day download and heck I didn't even have to enter my email address to download.
