    My one annoyance with my SB (backlit keyboard)

    It's a small one but annoying all the same. I with the color of the keys were not silver. I can type medium speed but I usually look at the keyboard while typing. The problem is that everyday I have to enable/disable the backlit keys. In the light, I have to turn it off so I can see the...

    Anyone actually use the rear camera

    I feel exactly the same. My Galaxy S7 takes fantastic photos. Even of whiteboards. Front camera? Critical for video capture, no question. Rear camera? Nice to have, not critical for me.

    Flashing window oddity

    It seems so. It wasn't there until recently. Living in the Middle East, I must be vigilant about intrusions. I use Windscribe for blocking trackers and VPN, and also use KeyScrambler to hide keysctrokes (which is having problems with W10 lately). Can't ever be too cautious. :cool:

    Flashing window oddity

    Ok, I was able to record the popup window. In the title bar of the window it has "C:\Windows\System32\SurfaceSystem.exe" I can't be the only one that sees this. /ON EDIT I'm not the only one... Anyone know what "SurfaceService.exe" does?

    Flashing window oddity

    My Surface Book is doing something odd. Every now and then, typically right after booting up, I see a window pop open and close immediately. It's just a blip. Kinda looks like a comand prompt window. Seems to be part of the boot up sequence. Anyone else have this happen? It made me think...

    Can't get latest update

    A couple basic questions... Have you rebooted and retried it? Are you within the US? I've had issues updating mine when traveling, so I use VPN to change my location.

    Firmware Update 2 Dec

    Since the update I've had two BSODs. They happened when I boot up. I rarely just close the lid and put it to sleep. I usually shut it down. For some reason when I just close the lid, the fans will kick on sometimes and the battery is killed. So no more sleeping. Shutting down is fast...

    USB not recognized

    I don't have a problem with the mouse while using a USB powered external DVD drive. It doesn't use two ports, just one. The plot thickens. It seems that once I plug in the drive, the wireless mouse stops working. But... it actually seems that the RANGE is affected. Like, the mouse works...

    USB not recognized

    Hello, OK, I just ran into something weird. I use a Logitech Anywhere MX wireless USB mouse most of the time so the USB dongle stays plugged in. No problem, it works fine. But today I also plugged in an external drive (2 TB Seagate USB 3.0). The moment I plug it in, I lose the mouse...
