    1809 update

    I had already updated to 1809 on my 2017 a while back. Just updated it to 1903 last week and it's running really nice. One of the best updates so far for me. YMMV;) PS. You can download the media creation tool 1903 at MS and just manually update to 1903. Very easy and straight forward. Just...

    Some Surface Devices Are Having Issues with Latest Windows Update

    Don't feel too bad. If you visit the Windows forums, you will find that the Surface products are not the only Windows machines experiencing problems with the latest Windows update. Both my Surface Pros, my HP laptop, my son's HP laptop, and our ASUS kitchen laptop are all experiencing...

    tiles stay on desktop

    Either click the Action Center icon(looks like a little speech bubble)located all the way to the right in the task bar, or swipe left on your screen from the right edge, which does the same thing. When you open the Action Center, down at the bottom is a square that says "Tablet Mode". Click that...

    Surface Pro 2 Trackpad Error

    Hi. Welcome to the forum. Just to clarify.... Are you talking about the Surface Pro 2 or the Surface Book 2? In your post you use both SP2 and SB2, and you are in the Surface Pro 2 forum. We might be able to help you better if we know what device you have, although the Surface Pros and Surface...

    Post Screenshots Here!

    OK. Time to update the screenshot and bring this thread back to life. I like my new background better than the other. I think Cortana is hot. And, I am loving my new SP2017. I also like the Win7 style start menu better than the Win10 one. It's called StartIsBack. I've been using this one since...

    Anyone still in love with their SP2?

    Little did I know that 4 years ago when I bought my SP2 that I'd still be in love with her many years later. Yes, I have since bought the new SP2017, and I'm in love with her too.....but we're still on our honeymoon. My SP2 resides in the kitchen as the family computer where she gets plenty of...

    Aspect Ratio

    I do agree with your assessment 100%. When I'm using Office 365, I really like the extra room on the screen. And, I like the bigger 12.3" screen on my SP2017. I guess I'll just use my SP2 for movies, and take advantage of the larger screen and 3:2 aspect ratio of my SP2017 for productivity.

    Aspect Ratio

    I have an SP2 and an SP2017. One thing I wish they had done with the SP2017 is gone back to the 16:9 aspect ratio of the SP2. I am not a big fan of the 3:2 aspect ratio. Too squarish, and has black bars on top and bottom for movies, so you don't get the benefit of full screen. On the other hand...

    Reset SP2 - Windows 10

    I have an SP2(MS Surface Pro 2, 4th Gen Core i5, 4gb RAM, 128GB SSD, Win 10 Pro) and feel the same way you do. I bought a new 2017 SP (MS Surface Pro 2017, 7th Gen Core i5, 8gb RAM, 256GB SSD, Win 10 Pro) and the SP2 now gets used as the kitchen computer. The SP2 is a great little device that...

    Here's a shot from a couple weeks ago when I first got my Pro 2017. Still pretty much the same. Only new icon in the dock not in the shot is Photoshop CC 2018.

    Why Did You Buy Your Surface Pro and How Do You Use It?

    I bought my SP 2017 to replace my SP 2, which is still trucking along just fine. I am a Real Estate Agent and I just couldn't see myself lugging around my 15 inch HP Envy. My SP 2's screen is too small to do any prolonged serious work on it, but the SP 2017 is perfect. I tried to use my iPad Pro...

    Got 3 Surfaces, all with light bleed + general MS bashing

    I have an SP2 and now an SP 2017 with no light bleed on either one. Maybe it's an manufacturer problem. Or, maybe just a lottery.

    New Surface Pro 2017, external monitor flashes

    I've had my new SP 2017 (i5, 256gb,8gb ram) hooked up to my 27 inch monitor via the mini display port and have had no problems whatsoever. I love this machine.
