    Creator's Update Issues (and resolutions)

    Those of you who have not updated yet with the new Creator's update, I'll save you some grief.... If you have been using Windows Hello to log in, when I updated with the Creator's update, it basically broke Windows Hello. Brought my surface book into the office for my IT person to look at...

    Windows Hello Face Recognition Not Working

    Netuser, I have a solution for you because it worked for me. Go into Settings>Accounts>Sign-in Options>Windows Hello. Remove your scan and go through the facial recognition process again. As I said, it worked for me. Good luck and report back what happens

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    Last night I decided to download and install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. After updating, everything worked fine. I especially loved some of the new features and I will have to say, my Surface was snappier. This morning, I turned on my computer...that was my first mistake. Edge browser...

    Windows Hello Face Recognition Not Working

    Last night, I updated Windows 10 with the anniversary update. This morning, I tried to use my Surface and, I must say, the anniversary update is a complete fail. I ended up reverting back to the previous Windows 10 operating system and all is working fine. Except, Windows Hello is not working...

    For us Surface Book beta testers.....

    I titled this post as sort of tongue in cheek; however, I am serious. I am sure that the people at Microsoft review this site to get feedback. I may be delusional in my thinking, but I honestly believe that Microsoft should figure out a way to give all of us Surface Book beta testers a make...

    System Settings ....turn on fast startup

    So, when we were having problems with the Hello camera not coming on, it was suggested to go into the system settings and uncheck the turn on fast startup option. I did this, and for a few days, everything worked as expected and the camera went on as expected. In the last 2 days, not so much...

    Camera does not turn on during startup after update

    So, I did what Surfacebook160 suggested and went into settings and unclicked the fast start up option. Everything was working great the last few days. This morning, I turned the Surface on as a cold boot......alas, the Hello camera did not come on. What's interesting though is that the...

    Camera does not turn on during startup after update

    So, after a few days of everything working perfectly, I am now experiencing the same issues.....I turn it on and the camera does not come on. I have to log in with my pin. I did notice something else. When this happens, if you look at the icons on the right side of the screen, the...

    Camera does not turn on during startup after update

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I went through the process that Surfacebook160 suggested and it appears to have fixed all of my issues. When I turn on the Book, the camera comes on and automatically logs me in, when I press the "detach" button the detach indication comes on as expected...

    Camera does not turn on during startup after update

    One other thing....when I press the "detach screen" button on the keyboard, the ok to detach indication in the lower part of the screen does not come on. I only know that I can detach because I hear the mechanism unlock.

    Camera does not turn on during startup after update

    Same thing here.....camera doesn't turn on....sometimes the screen is really dark and I have to turn it off and then turn it on again. Windows Hello does not turn the camera on when first booting up. I have to turn off and on a few times to get it to work......this is the first time that I...

    So, let me tell you how STUPID I am......I violated the first amendment of computer problem solving.......because this was a brand new device, I was stumped as to what could cause the lack of charging. And then, it hit me.....before I go to sleep, I always plug in my devices so that they charge...

    Battery Charging

    Leeshor, thank you so much for replying so quickly. You mention that it might have been in sleep mode. However, I am positive that when I turned my device off last night, that I went to Power and then Shut Down, and not sleep. Are you implying that even though I clicked "Shut Down" that it...

    Battery Charging

    I'm a first time poster, long time lurker. Got my Surface Book last week. Last night, I shut down my device and connected it to the battery charger. I made sure that the white lights come on the charger connection, indicating there is a connection. I didn't notice what % my battery was...
