    Paint Tool SAI 2 suddenly not working on Surface Pro 4!

    Hi, I have a Surface Pro 4, and one of the main reasons I have one is because I create a lot of digital art. I got it almost 2 years ago and it works fine, no problems. I got Paint Tool SAI 2 for it pretty much as soon as I got it, which has also worked fine with no problems, it's been great...

    Type Cover Not Responding

    When Sp4 has been left idle, the Type Cover will stop working. However, you can still use the touch screen. To fix this, you must remove Type Cover and re-attach and it'll work. This has been tested on three different Surface Type Covers so must be a device issue. I've updated HID Keyboard...

    Hi all, this is going to sound really odd but any help would be much appreciated. A user at my place of work uses a trackball mouse with her SP4, as well as the touchpad on her type cover at times. We used 'X Mouse Button Control' to configure the trackball mouse and at first, this worked...

    Its been few years, any way to keep backlight always on?

    The SP4 and generally the Type Cover is out for a few years now. I have seen many threads about this with no answers... Am I missing something? How comes not enough people care that MSFT is not fixing it? Perhaps there is some custom firmware to make the type cover keep the backlight always on...
