    Surface disappointments

    Just bought a brand new Surface Pro 3 from Curry's for £700. Couldn't wait for it to arrive, but now that it has I must say I'm underwhelmed.

When detatching the tablet screen from the keyboard on my Surface Pro 4, the on-screen keyboard appears as expected in text-entry instances (notepad, Word, Internet Explorer). However, I have created an ActiveX Text Box...

    Surface Book Pen Customization

    I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to further customize the surface pen. I love that I can assign different functions to back button however, at least for me, the default functions are kind of useless. I've already assigned one click to launch my web browser as I feel OneNote is kind...

    Hi to everyone, I am very interested in the new Surface 4 pro, but I have some doubt about it. First of all, and probabibly the most important question, can the surface replace an ultrabook? What loses, what earns more? My question is due to the fact that I am an university students...

    Opinions on Surface Book

    Hi all I am a college student who has just purchased the Surface Book. I have been asked to write up a paper on a high tech product launched within the last six months so I thought what better product than the Surface Book itself. Although I am an owner of the laptop and love it, I need to...

    Any way to customise trackpad gestures?

    Is there any way to customise the trackpad gestures on the surface book? For example, a 3 finger tap opens Cortana (or action center if you wish), but can I change it to act as a middle click? Can I use a two finger swipe back to go back a page in Edge? Or a three finger drag to move windows...

    Unable to install Surface App after clean install

    I just reinstalled my Surface Pro 4 and can't find or install the Surface App for the pen. I got the i7 512 gb ssd and wanted to partition it, so therefore did a clean install of Windows 10. According to Microsoft I should just have to search for the app in the store, but it can't be found. I...

    Why is the SB's display so red?

    The display on my SB (opened new from the box 10 minutes ago) has a really warm display (i.e. the whites on the screen do not look white, but look ever so slightly red). I have tried the colour calibration tool in windows and some other 3rd party calibration tools but that does not really fix...

    Quick Q: SP4 i5 limited or full touch support

    Hi Pretty much in the title, I noticed the other day that in Computer properties it says "Pen and limited touch support with 10 touch points". I'm on the SP4 i5 256GB/8GB. It seems strange that a new 'high-end' device such as the SP4 would only have limited touch support? I don't have any...

    Hi! New Surface user having issues with cursor(s)

    For some reason, my SP4 has a weird issue where it will use win7 loading cursors, then switch back to 8.1/10 mouse cursors. Under settings, I have confirmed that its supposed to use 8.1/10 cursors only. I also have gone through device manager and updated my mice/etc but all the drivers are...

    USB hub with Ethernet connection

    Hi (new poster here ;) ) Basically I've procured a SP4 (with 256GB storage) to replace my slightly old PC so I will have essentially a smarter laptop/PC. I use PS3/PS4 for gaming which I think is getting more wise and cost effective these days. However, having a couple of external USB 3.0 HDDs...
