    Surface Pro 8 with 32 GB Ram?

    I only see this for people who want to flex :D In all seriousness - If you are a AI/ML Developer or a Professional Photographer or Artist using Raw files I could see the 32GB of RAM coming in handy.

    Surface Pro 7+ vs Surface Pro 8?

    I've been using the SP8 since Tuesday and it is by far the best Windows 2 and 1 I've used. Enhancements over the Pro7+ 120Hz Screen 13" display that is the best panel I've seen on a Surface New Digitizer Slim Pen 2 with haptic feedback 2 TB4 ports allow for further upgrades and use cases...

    So... Windows 11!

    It was the Connected Standby Power State introduced in Windows 8 - allows for always on connectivity while maintaining battery life. It's like your smartphone - it can be in a low power state and still receive notification and calls.

    I have a surface pro4 laptop The drive is full, but the contents only adds up to 25gb

    Open PC Settings - System - Storage and it will give you a breakdown of what is occupying your space, my guess is you'll find you have a large number of Temp Files (including previous versions of Windows) and then Apps and System. It will walk you through deleting what you don't need.

    Windows Pro instead of W Home edition

    If you have a License for Windows 10 Pro, just go to PC Settings - System - About and change the Key to Pro, no need to reinstall

    So... Windows 11!

    I'm running Windows 11 on my Pro X with the new Office ARM64 Insider Build. Working well especially for an early build.

    Brand new SPX crashed after W10 Update

    I'm running Windows 11 without any major issues, I'm also running the new ARM64 Office Insider Build. IIRC - the latest Firmware updates should have fixed that specific bug-check.

    Brand new SPX crashed after W10 Update

    I have two SP X devices and neither has had this issue, sounds like a fluke. I have one on Windows 10 and one on Windows 11 currently.

    Windows External Monitors Are Large

    Are these older applications? Some older application struggle on High DPI screens (like the Surface), you can attempt running the Application Troubleshooter Settings - Update and Security - Troubleshoot - Other Troubleshooters and select the one for Application Compatibility.

    Surface Pen- light is blinking but won’t write

    If it uses a AAAA battery then it is required for inking, unlike the Wacom EMR that current is in the screen, the Microsoft (N-Trig) Pen has the power in the pen. One thing you can try is remove the tip of the pen and put it back into the per barrel.
