    Surface Dock - no USB with new Surface Go

    Posting an update, in case anyone should stumble upon this with similar symptoms. After return to the retailer and subsequently distributor, I'm advised that it's being replaced, so probably concluding a hardware failure with the connector.

    Surface Dock - no USB with new Surface Go

    As further info in case anyone can assist, I've spent a fewhours following the process for firmware update of the dock as noted here Microsoft Surface Dock Firmware Update - Technical information for IT administrators - Surface. I ran the update on my SP3 and from the wife's SP3 just in case of...

    Surface Dock - no USB with new Surface Go

    Hi all. Long story short:my Surface Pro 3 finally died a battery death, so I picked up a Surface Go (1) to hold me over until the Pro 8 comes out. When I plug the Surface Dock (1) cable into the Go, it powers it and drives the two attached monitors fine, but doesn't register the USB devices for...

    Solved SP3 - Orientation is locked

    Update : confirming that a full reset in the course of the fall creator's update has resolved this. For anyone else finding this in search, suggest that a factory reset may work.

    Solved SP3 - Orientation is locked

    Hi all. For about the last 10 days my SP3 has been unwilling to auto-rotate, and I've exhausted my web searching skills. Things I have eliminated/tried: Rotation Lock is not on Every conceivable option in the Display Settings area (to be clear, I can manually set portrait/landscape...

    Anniversary update No Multitouch after resume from sleep

    Hi there. I updated my SP3 (with upgraded Type Cover 4) to the Anniversary Update, and nearly everything is good. An issue I have noted is that now when I resume from sleep, no multi-touch trackpad gestures work : no two-finger-tap for right-click, no two-finger scroll, no pinch-zoom. If I log...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Great to hear that you found something that works well - are you running the Samsung at 150% too? Re the status bar, If you go to the display settings (I usually just right-click on the desktop), you should be able to select any monitor and tick the box toward the bottom for the screen for 'Make...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Yes, plug in and test is the only way to go. I should clarify that my theory about having all displays 150% possibly alleviating the logout issue is absolutely just a theory. You could of course test the theory by setting your present monitors to 150%, then testing if the display avoids the...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Given my experience with the same monitor compliment as yours (ie need to log out to get correct display), I think the only way that you might avoid this with the current windows 10 capabilities would be if the monitor you selected met your preferences while also at 150%. If you get a 4K at the...

    In Search of a Small USB 3 Powered Hub w Ethernet for SP3

    I've never seen one, but that's a great idea. I think I may break out the soldering iron, as the necessary wiring would be trivial, and if you get the length just right it could be very very tidy. Let us know if you find one!

    Touch Keyboard Doesn't Come Up In Chrome or Firefox

    Yes, it happened after an update last week. If you create a shortcut for chrome using a target along the lines of C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application --disable-usb-keyboard-detect, and launch Chrome with that, it seems to work fine. For now. (I think it was actually a Windows...

    How to control Desktop from Pro 4.

    Hi, if you're needing to use the input from the SP4 to control the Desktop, you could also try out Synergy. (I'm not familiar with JNRoach's suggestion, which may be a better fit for you) The basics are that it lets you control multiple PCs with a single mouse and keyboard, you generally set...

    Any news on customizable pen buttons?

    I just had a thought: if it's web forward/back that appeal most, and you're clearly at the computer, how about your keyboard's ALT+Leftarrow for Back and LT+Rightarrow for Forward?

    Any news on customizable pen buttons?

    Yes I was aware of that possibility, but not sure if that will do what dermpcturd is after, which is passing a keystroke to the active application (i.e. Powerpoint)? Sounds like doan92 in that thread might be heading there with a sendkeys vbs?

    Any news on customizable pen buttons?

    Bummer. I'm on Windows 10, so it's not that. If the letter "a" is launching Action Center, that sounds like something thinks your Windows Key is held down (Win+A is the standard shortcut): the clue would be if typing "e" opened File Explorer and "d" showed the desktop. Can't imagine what...

    Any news on customizable pen buttons?

    As far as I know I think they should work the same. Post back if it doesn't work : I don't have a Surface Book to test (jealous!), but we could probably figure it out.

    Any news on customizable pen buttons?

    Hi there. Just to clarify for you, what I have had working is using just the top button, as this is the only button that connects by bluetooth. This means I can be standing away from the device and control powerpoint slides. (For the side buttons, based on what herrkjeldsen has posted above, it...

    Surface 3 Unlock Issue

    My SP3 does this sometimes (in last few weeks). I find a good old CTRL-ALT-DELETE brings the password dialog up in the normal manner. -of course you may need to bring the on-screen keyboard up...

    Any way to customise trackpad gestures?

    You're welcome Nikhil - glad I could help. You're right that a first party setting to customise swipes would be great, and we can keep hoping (and discussing). Last week's change to allow better customisation of the pen buttons is one of an occasional but very welcome series of moves that makes...

    Any way to customise trackpad gestures?

    Hi - Autohotkey will let you alter taps (and keyboard mappings) quite easily, and runs with a low overhead. You can make the three finger tap do middle-click (which is my preferred option and works really well), and the remapping for Autohotkey for that is +#^F22::mouseclick, middle You can...
