    Question mark key not working on type cover

    Does the key work when shifted at all? If not, the circuit is very likely broken, and repair not possible. Just live your online life without ever asking questions.:(

    Question mark key not working on type cover

    If your type cover can be attached / used backwards, try that. Does the question mark key work when backwards? The type cover on my SP3 did that for a key or two in the past. I blew air hard under the key to make sure debris wasn't in there. Fixed it.

    Trackpad keeps disappearing....

    Do this: On your Surface, add Edge Extension “AdBlock” or “AdBlock Plus”. On an iPhone, Edge will have it active. Maybe it will work this way on your Note 9, too. Here are two screenshots of my iPhone Edge settings:

    Erratic File Explorer

    Hello, @jott27 If you opened any of the files on the USB drive, that started a program or app in order to view or use the file. If you opened a photo, a graphics app was started. If you opened a text file, Notepad or the like was started. If you opened an audio file, a player was started. If...

    usb 3.0 issue

    @JimmyFloyd, Welcome to the forum. As a long-time owner of a SP3, all I can think of, besides a fresh Windows 10 install, is that your device has too much power draw for USB3.0, and steps down to 2.0.

    HowTo Save those beautiful automatic LockScreen Highlight images - Free

    I use Windows Hello. Very convenient. But sometimes, as my face is being recognized or I am about to enter my PIN, I see that my lock screen is using a beautiful or interesting image chosen by Microsoft. These images are different than the default Bing image of the day. The image shows in...

    Battery Icon Missing

    @RianArchie , Do you have Administrator privileges on your account? If not, you may need the Administrator account owner to make that change.

    Desperately seeking base-to-screen cable

    You could purchase a pair of used/undersized/salvaged chargers and cut/splice the cables to make your own. There are six conductors to splice.

    I would go for the PoderCamino. Looks like a good find at a good price.

    access windows 10 OneNote from another computer user account

    Oh. Sorry for my confusion. To get OneNote on your computer, open the Microsoft Store and search for OneNote. It is free.

    Desperately seeking base-to-screen cable

    Looks the same - but possibly battery or case, etc. did not meet QC specs so is sold a bit cheaper by a 3rd party. Don't know.

    access windows 10 OneNote from another computer user account

    You can set up either the same username (email) on both computers, or add a second user to the second computer which has the same username as the first. min the end, your files, including OneNote and OneDrive documents are organized by Microsoft user account, not computer. Hope this helps.

    Desperately seeking base-to-screen cable

    A good choice. No AC outlet and half the capacity, but you wouldn’t need to use your regular Surface brick too.

    Desperately seeking base-to-screen cable

    That clarifies things. I have used the Halo Bolt 58830 mWh on my large sailboat when we've been out for three days or so. Enough juice to power/charge your SB2 clipboard for sure. I got it in case I needed to jump start the diesel engine on the boat. The cost is about US$150 but was well...
