    LogIn password behaviour on different networks.

    My Surface Pro has a slightly annoying behaviour on log in, depending on what WiFi network environment I'm in. For example: When I am at home I start up my Surface Pro and log in with my Windows account password. So far so good. I shut down my SP after use, ready for another day. Next time, at...

    Outlook 2013 problem

    Someone in the office appears to have the answer. I'm told that he is an absolute Microsoft nut, and what he doesn't know about MS products is not worth knowing apparently! He has both the RT and SP and raves about them, saying they are the best bits of kit ever made! Anyway, I digress. He says...

    Outlook 2013 problem

    Thanks for your responses guys. I would have replied earlier but have been away on a trip. Yes, I've been using my domain log in information. It was set up by the IT guys and the pop up displays my log in in the form of username@domain and asks for my password. I went to...

    Outlook 2013 problem

    Hi, All. When I got my SP I installed the free one month trial of MS Office 2013. I entered my personal email account (POP) into Outlook 2013 with no problems. When I went into the office on the Monday our IT Technicians set up my work (Exchange) account in Outlook 2013 and all appeared...

    Thinking of a bluetooth mini mouse for SP

    Thanks, jnjroach. That is what I needed to know. Based on that I have ordered the Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 from Amazon. It looks good and is, by all reports, quite small and compact.

    Thinking of a bluetooth mini mouse for SP

    I didn't want the wedge mouse as I don't find it aesthetically pleasing! So; back to question a).

    Thinking of a bluetooth mini mouse for SP

    I'm thinking of getting a bluetooth mini mouse to use with my Surface Pro. The one I have my eye on is the Logitech M187 Wireless Mini Mouse. I was looking at a few similar models in a shop the other day and notice they all come with a mini receiver which plugs into the USB port. My...

    How to import Outlook contacts?

    I found the (.pst) file and copied it to my USB stick. I then plugged it in to the USB port on my SP. I opened Outlook and followed the directions on the link above. When I click "Finish" at the bottom of the screen what appears to be a progress bar appears for a millisecond, three or four...

    How to import Outlook contacts?

    @hotphil. Thanks for the links. The steps appear very simple and were easy to follow. I put a USB stick in a USB port in preparation for this task. I followed all the simple steps shown in the link. So far so good. Now is when it gets interesting! At no point did it ask me where I wanted to...

    How to import Outlook contacts?

    I have an Acer desktop pc at home, running WIN8 Pro, and I use Outlook 2010 as my primary (POP3) email tool. Obviously I have an extensive contacts file in there. I have just bought a SP 128Gb and installed Outlook 2013 on the one month free trial. So, far I like it. I took it in to work...

    European release date for Pro?

    Microsoft advised that the availability date for Luxembourg would be 30th May. So I went to my local supplier last week to make a pre-order for the 128Gb version, which they accepted. When I asked to confirm the date of 30th May they said "Well maybe end of May, or during June"! Anyway, I...

    European release date for Pro?

    Yes, indeed. Luxembourg, which comes under MS France/LU, has a legal minimum of two years warranty on all such items. So I definitely want to buy it here locally. I just want to do it before I retire in another ten years!

    European release date for Pro?

    My only concern with imports is warranty coverage. I suspect that if it's imported from the United States it won't have a valid European warranty.

    European release date for Pro?

    I see that Amazon.co.uk are now offering the 64Gb Pro, marked as "in stock", for 779.99 UK Pounds and it is supplied by "Smart-Deals". No mention of the 128Gb version, which is the one that I would want. MS site for Fra/LU still says "coming soon".
