    Three finger swipe on touchpad - I want it to go back and forth for webpages and explorer

    The last couple of releases of Windows Insider have included customizable gestures. So browser back/forward have finally returned. For those less adventurous you'll need to wait a while until the next rev of Windows is released.

    Official Windows 10 Insiders thread

    I have had a two finger scrolling issue on the last four Insider's builds. When I try to scroll I have to move my fingers close to 1 cm before scrolling activates. I've checked all the settings and everything is set the same. I've even tried reloading drivers and playing around with the...

    Best Place to Purchase

    If you have a Microcenter nearby they are selling that model for $1319.99 plus tax. The local MS Store did a price match for me. I went with the MS Store to have a better chance of getting a more recent batch.

    New SP4 owner, want to keep it but....

    Can you add tethering to your phone? I travel extensively and just use my work issued phone with tethering for all my data needs in the US and abroad.

    MS Surface pro 4: Terrible Build quality

    I went through 10 exchanges. :( I'm fairly persistent. I currently have an i7 that is working very well. No driver crashes or issues besides the power drain issue and some relatively minor backlight bleed. It's been a while since I transitioned from my SP3 (going through the exchange...

    Mouse/Keyboard interruptions using the dock

    I have a peripheral setup very similar to dkappelman with the exact same problems when using the dock with a slight twist. I'm having the same issues while using an SP4. So it does seem to be a dock problem.

    Microsoft surface stream iTunes from Laptop

    You can add up to 50,000 songs. I downloaded the app to my wife's computer. In the background it uploads songs to the Google cloud. As new music is added to iTunes it is synced to the cloud. The only negative that I found is that the DRM'd music that I purchased from iTunes years ago is not...

    The Surface 3 waiting room

    I tried one out this past weekend. I came away fairly impressed. I have a SP3, but I'm considering a S3 as direct replacement for an iPad. I really see the S3 as an iPad killer. If you compare specs between the two machines the S3 comes out as a winner. I don't think I would want to replace...

    Microsoft surface stream iTunes from Laptop

    I have streamed from my wife's computer using home share in the past. Though I haven't tried it in the past few months. iTunes has become such a smoking pile of you know what that I refuse to use it anymore.

    Anti-slip pads for Surface Pro 3

    A medium sized screen cleaning cloth placed on the tabletop would probably work.

    I didn't know that the SP3 was water cooled.

    While the heat pipe in the SP3 is probably one of the thinnest examples the tech isn't anything special. Just about every notebook on the market has something similar just on a larger scale.

    After Patch - The Microsoft Office Document Cache Encountered a Problem

    I know this isn't going to go over well, but I had some other issues with Office recently. I tried all the fixes online and the only one that worked was to uninstall/install Office again. :(
