    Camera stopped working

    I had this last week. The only thing I could do was to go back to a restore point of a couple of weeks ago. Worked for me and saved a rebuild.

    Icons missing from metro tiles

    Recently, I think after the latest update, the icons vanish from the tiles on the front page. A reboot restores them and so does resizing them but as soon as I return to the front page, the icons have vanished leaving just blank tiles. How can I restore them permanently? Thanks

    Screen compared with iPad

    By all accounts, the surface pro 4 screen is the most colour-accurate across the current range of tablets. However, when I compare the same photo material with my wife's iPad the iPad looks so much more vibrant. I feel quite the underdog!!! Are there any settings appart from brighness that...

    Pop-ups on taskbar. can they be slowed?

    When you touch an app icon in the taskbar, the associated windows' icons pop up. With Outlook for instance, there could be many of the window icons that fill up the bottom of the screen. However, they vanish within a second, often too soon to be able to select the window you want. Is there a...

    How do I stop power saving causing media to close

    Thanks. How crazy is that! It's almost as crazy as not being able to set an alarm for the morning without leaving the SP powered up all night! Android wins hands-down in this regard. Surely the mighty brain of Microsoft could fix this! Cheers

    How do I stop power saving causing media to close

    This when the SP4 goes to sleep To clarify, this isn't a DLNA or Miracast issue. This is just listening to incoming internet streams on iPlayer. No casting involved. Cheers

    How do I stop power saving causing media to close

    While playing streaming media, it closes when the power save kicks on. Is there a work around for this without having to reset the power saving parameters every time I want to stream something? Thanks

    Keyboard as a default?

    Some time ago, an update to my SP4 "cured" the annoying problem of the writing space appearing instead of the on screen keyboard when I was using the pen. I have just had to rebuild my SP4 due to a corrupted settings file. I have loaded all the recommended updates but the problem has returned...

    Problem opening settings

    Yep, this is the very last resort. It would probably take me a couple of weeks to restore all my apps. I am still clinging on to the hope that there is a file that can be replaced to just reset the network piece of the settings.

    Problem opening settings

    Ahh, you've got me there! I am 99% sure it was the former and not the legacy control panel. I have deleted the StreamVia profile using the legacy panel but this has still not solved the problem: as soon as I select "VPN" in the settings page, the whole of the network options are unresponsive...

    Problem opening settings

    When I select "VPN" from the network list on my SP4, all I get is the blue page with the cog wheel. I have carried to the "trick" to refresh the immersivecontrolpanel but the problem persists when using the keyboard, pen or mouse. I can get to the menu from the windows menu but when I select...

    Wifi slow to connect after restart or resume from sleep

    You're lucky! Mine doesn't reconnect even though the network says it's connected. I have to disconnect and reconnect to get things working again.

    Miracast won't connect to TV

    Thanks for the comment. Having bought an all-singing, all-dancing TV, I am loathed to fork out more cash when the technology in both devices is already there but I guess I may have to bite the bullet. Cheers

    Miracast won't connect to TV

    I have a new Panasonic TV and a new SP4. Both have Miracast and the SP4 "sees" the TV but after up to a minute of "connecting" the connection fails. Mirroring is enabled on the TV. Has anyone solved this problem or am I missing something? Thanks

    Soft keyboard woes. Advice please

    Another anomaly: when starting to type the query in the address bar of the browser, after the first character, the keyboard vanishes and needs to be manually opened to finish typing. Anyone else noticed this?
