    Using my Surface 3 as display

    I'm thinking of using my surface 3 in my truck as an information display. I would mount the docking station and plug it in to a 120v converter. I would use an OBD2 usb cable to the docking station. Should this work well? Has anyone done this with a surface?

    Is there an app for that (song sheets)

    I play the guitar and sing. Not great, but fun. I'd love to be able to have song sheets on my Surface and flip pages with a pedal or button. I think there are apps for that with the iPad, is there anything that works that way for the Surface? I'm working with a Surface 3...

    Solved New/Old member wonders where to go next

    It's been along time since I've been on these forums. Started when I got my Surface RT and continued up to the time I got my Surface 3. I've loved my Surface 3, and if I didn't have so many charging issues wouldn't need to think about upgrading now. But it won't take a charge anymore, so I've...

    Trouble Watching Videos

    Sometimes my Surface 3 won't let me watch videos. If I delete cookies, check for updates and do a manual restart, that problem is usually resolved. I'm talking about simple youtube videos. Anyone know how to fix it?

    As a guitarist, I have a lot of my song sheets on Word. I'm mostly happy with it. I'm wondering if there is an app that anyone uses that helps them change pages or do anything else with your music?

    Who is using Windows 10 on Surface 3?

    I understand Windows 10 is available, or will be. Who has upgraded to Windows 10 and is happy? Who has upgraded to Windows 10 and is not happy? What do you like or not like about it using it with the Surface 3? I haven't seen an offer to upgrade, how does one go about getting it?

    The Good? The Bad? The Ugly?

    So, I'm looking to upgrade. Been using the Surface RT for 2.5 years very happily. For me it's a word processor, internet accessor and a presentation device (I put it on the pulpit and preach from it, kind of like my own personal teleprompter). The size of the RT has been very useful, and I'm...

    Microsoft Store Distribution

    Come on Microsoft. Staples and Best Buy can let you get your hands on the devices, I haven't found anyone at either store that could answer even the most rudimentary question about anything Microsoft. The people at Staples seem to run in the other direction if they see that's what you're...

    No Trade

    So, I was looking at the Pro 3, and the store website said they'd take my RT in trade. I've opined on here before that I'd just keep the RT, because I don't like to have electronics which have had my personal info on them get out of my hands. Still, I thought I could restore it to the way it...
