    Which version of Windows did you replace with Windows 10?

    All my devices followed the upgrade chain closely. From XP onwards has always had the new OS installed on Release day. Nothing changed with Windows 10, everything was already running 8.1

    Hi All (Again)

    Okay. Hi all, again. Cut a long story short I bought a Surface RT on release date a few years ago now and didn't enjoy the experience. I signed up to these forums on the days running upto their release and spoke with members on a run up. After a botched pre-order, shipping and release in the UK...

    Thinking about returning my surface.

    Okay. I haven't been on this forum for a while but I thought I'd give an update since people were asking questions.. 1. To factory reset the surface just go to settings > general > Refresh or Re-install. 2. My surface has not been returned as I'm still waiting for a shipping label, one week...

    Thinking about returning my surface.

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about returning my surface on the simple fact that it seems... "Slow". Don't get my wrong, I love the hardware it's self and its a great toy, but the device itself is rather slow. General loading of app's takes forever compared the my mothers iPad, and don't worry, I...

    Surface or touchscreen laptop

    If you don't have a laptop, or your laptop is very old... I suggest getting a new one before a surface RT, because the RT is still only a toy, no native apps etc... If your laptop is modern I would suggest buying windows 8 for £25, an you should still have enough money for a surface if you're...

    Apps website?

    I'm afraid not, but if you make a short list in pretty sure someone on the forum will look to see if those apps are available. If not, I can look when I get home..

    supported software (web)

    I just used Google to search for "Nike+ Connect" and was greeted with a .exe to download and install, which will not work with Surface RT. I also checked on the app store for "Nike+" on my Surface with no luck. There are 0 results. Unless you mean the web app is some kind of flash page / web...

    Microsoft Surface Shipping - United Kingdom/Germany/France

    Just thought I'd give everyone an update. So I received my 64 GB Surface on Monday, which I noticed had slow loading times on Applications and in the menus of the 'Music' application, which I put down to software. (You can see I asked about this in a different thread) Today, 5 minutes ago, I...

    Microsoft Surface RT Drop Testing

    The screen was bound to smash, but I bet it still has great scratch resistance - although I was very happy to see the rear of the device not getting too many scratches on it, which is a bonus.

    Surface RT Unboxing Thoughts/Pics

    My thoughts are, after owning the surface for 24hrs; It's a great tablet, and pretty speedy - when the apps are open - but the apps them selves are sluggish to load. (Software Problem?) I downloaded a game called "Snook!" and was VERY choppy, practically unplayable - Again this could be a...

    Microsoft Surface Shipping - United Kingdom/Germany/France

    Just thought I would let you know that my surface has arrived and I'm replying to this using it. It's rather nice actually but the keyboard is a little hard to get used to.

    Saving credit card info

    Usually I get placed on the US store, I change the the UK store by editing the URL to say 'en_GB', instead of 'en_US'. I guess you could have a guess at was Canada could be and try that method. 'en_CA' possibly? Good Luck.

    Microsoft Surface Shipping - United Kingdom/Germany/France

    Damn I hope you're from the UK Gary. Problem is, mine still says "In Process", and I still haven't received the shipping E-mail, hope for the best I guess... I'm still going insane waiting for it.

    The Wish List

    I wouldn't mind a docking system for it. But then again for the surface as a brand, I wouldn't mind seeing a "surface" smart phone, with the same casing and look. I'd swap my iPhone any day for that, I hate my iPhone and wish I kept my Windows Phone. :(
