    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.

    Dim display

    It shure helped me! Thank you! :) My i7 Pro 6 was disappointingly dim when I started using it, and when I followed your lead and uninstalled the display driver it actually got brighter the second the uninstall device window closed, and it stayed bright after a reboot! :D

    I can't get my Pro to scroll sideways with two fingers

    Sorry, I didn't get a warning of those answers. I have tried to delete and re-add the device. But after the latest Windows update (Fall Creator's Update) it suddenly works as it used to. No idea why, but I'm happy it does.

    I can't get my Pro to scroll sideways with two fingers

    Yeah, it's the touchscreen, not the touchpad.

    I can't get my Pro to scroll sideways with two fingers

    I haven't gotten it to work in any way. Kind of weird that there are no paticular settings for clicking and so on for the touchscreen. This is in web browsers (which is just about the only thing I use with the Surface as a tablet), both Firefox and Chrome.

    I can't get my Pro to scroll sideways with two fingers

    On my Pro 4 this happened out of the box, but not on my new Pro (5....). And I can't find the settings for that either, I have tried dedctivating pinch to zoom from an advice online, but that didn't help. Does anybody know what I should do to get this working?

    Trackpad and touchscreen issues since anniversary update

    I have a similar issue. I never shut down or reboot unless there's an update or other reason to do so, 99 % of the times I only go into sleep mode. But after the same update I keep loosing the touchscreen when the SP4 has been docked, maybe once a day or so (I go off and on the dock 5-10 times a...

    I have to use startup repair on restarts!

    Yesterday my Surface went ape when I took of the docking contact. I only saw the mouse pointer in the middle. I could move it, but nothing else. I tried to connect it again, and it did connect, but then I saw nothing but the mouse pointer in the middle of the external screen. So I pressed the...

    Is it possible to avoid S4P waking up when power is connected?

    Yeah, I know that. But the thing is that it stopped draining much in stand-by after the last firmware update, so that shouldn't be a problem anymore. Are you sure you have the last Windows Update?

    Is it possible to avoid S4P waking up when power is connected?

    I often connect the unit to power just to charge it. After the fixes a while back that meant that I don't have to go into hibernation to avoid killing the battery power every time I do, I went started using sleep mode instead. But my S4P i5 wakes up and fires the IR camera and starts looking for...

    Bunch of new Intel updates 5/10

    I installed them last month, and again now (well, Windows update did), and now the touchscreen stops working about ten times as often as before. Annoying as hell! I have to use the type cover to hibernate (I have the power button to sleep now that it isn't using up all the power through the...

    Is it possible to convert the SSD to MBR?

    OK, thanks! Not problem solved, but at least something I don't even have to think about.
