    Hyperlinks in Win8 Mail

    I had HUP in my previous job (wasted it for my Mac), so I asked for it in the new company, but apparently it's only for companies >300 employees

    Hyperlinks in Win8 Mail

    Great point, thanks a lot. This is definitely a valid answer to my question but unfortunately still not applicable to me, since I don't want to pay for a huge software suite to fulfill the purpose of any other, even the simplest freeware product. Maybe I'll give the appstore a chance - not too...

    websurfing on a Surface 2 - will it be much slower than a SP2?

    Thank you. In this case, I'd be curious how the SP2 renders that page. Could you please give me the exact link? Is it www.huffingtonpost.com/‎ ?

    Hyperlinks in Win8 Mail

    Negative sir. If I'm not totally wrong, Outlook is a pure Desktop application. That means no gesture zooming and no whatsoever optimisation for other gestures. That's a no-go on the tiny Surface screen and without keyboad/mouse. I can't tell you exactly what the issues are, but I started with...

    websurfing on a Surface 2 - will it be much slower than a SP2?

    Hi there, I'm really frustrated: I just HATE surfing on any type of iOS or Android device, because ... you know, it just doesn't work. No flash, rubbish mobile sites, etc... Hence I've got myself a Surface Pro 2, the most frustrating computer experience I've had in my whole life, so I want to...

    Hyperlinks in Win8 Mail

    Hi there, just wondering how you dial with the fact that Win8 Mail doesn't or poorly supports hyperlinks. Copy/pasting link without keyboard is a nightmare. I haven't tried, but I'd be surprised if there is a better, or even a real good ModernUI mail program in the store. Is it? Cheers...

    About scratches and warranties.

    You and kayzee probably need better glasses ;–) My first one got scratches by doing this: 1. put it on a clean(!) table backside down 2. pick it up and by doing this move it ~0,3inch on the table's surface I'm not talking about scratches to the bare metal, but still scratches. Sorry guys, but...

    About scratches and warranties.

    I have got 5(!) replacements from MS. The first I returned was scratched as ANY SP2 will we scratched after a few days of regular use (=a lot, due to the rubbish paint). The others weren't scratched, however, I never heard back from MS. I always chose the advanced replacement. Never had a...

    got the march FW update twice - how come?

    I have to correct my previous statement - it was definitely the Firmware: "Systemfirmwareupdate - 11.03.2014" Successfully installed on 17.04.2014 and Successfully installed on 09.04.2014 In between there are 9 other updates, so you don't see them on the same screen, else I'd attach a...

    got the march FW update twice - how come?

    Yes, it was System Hardware, you're right. Thx! But it still makes me wonder, since when MS delivers patches during the month, not only on patch Tuesday. Any idea?

    got the march FW update twice - how come?

    Hi there, I havent used my SP2 in a while because Im just waiting for somebody to buy it. Now Im using it and it just installed again the March FW update. I see it clearly in the history. When I recently had the MS support on the phone they told me that the March update is the best and...

    March FW update failed - doesn't come back

    GoodBytes, I really admire your positive attitude! :-) (unfortunately I can't share it...)

    March FW update failed - doesn't come back

    oh yes, the old trick for the Dec. update, I almost forgot that. Thx! Tried it now: it didn't take a few minutes, but over an hour. After that the auto-update reported the Feb. Firmware and the usual defender update. Nothing else. Very interesting.

    March FW update failed - doesn't come back

    Hi there, my device did install the march updates automatically and it worked apart from the FW. Now I see the failed FW in the update history but it just doesn't try to update it again. Any way to force that?

    Calibrating with Spyder4 Pro

    At which brightness setting did u calibrate it? Did you disable auto brightness? I think it would be hard to calibrate the SP2 reliably, because the only 2 reference brightness settings are full and lowest, both arent suited for calibration.

    My SKINny Surface Pro 2 - Vinyl Skin

    I have mine from Design-Folien & Schutz-Cover für Handy, Notebook & Co - DesignSkins® von DeinDesign? Carbon look + my name and adress. But the site seems to be available only in german. Their skin only covers the back. Its very good, but Id prefer to also have the bezel protected because its...

    How to Limit Data when on a cruise

    I'd propose not to use your eMail program, but the respective webmail site, if there is one. That doesn't transfer the data to your PC. If you insist to use your eMail program it would be helpful to know which one, then one could tell you where to set, that it downloads only headers. FB will...

    Closing Type Cover - billions of issues

    very, very similar to me. I thought it was fixed after re-installing the driver (unless here it was the "Surface Type Cover Update Device" IIRC). But shortly after the issues came back. What did you do about it?

    Closing Type Cover - billions of issues

    I didn't want to bore you with details... Why I can be sure about the relation to the update is: it was standing on my office's desk, I did the update and after it was finished I closed the lid. When I returned shortly after, I opened the cover, pressed the power button and there it was: the...
