    Can I Disable Surface Pro 2 Trackpad When Typing?

    As I recall, I easily set my Surface Pro 2 with Typecover to temporarily disable the trackpad when my hands are over the keyboard. Microsoft replaced my original SP2 with one that doesn't have that capability. I don't recall how I did it and I can't locate instructions to do so. Reader(s)...

    Are You Using SmartGlass to Connect Your Win 8 Phone to Your Surface For GPS

    Yeah, I knew that was the original intent but I was hoping that the functionality had been expanded. Bluetooth doesn't seem to be the answer either.

    Are You Using SmartGlass to Connect Your Win 8 Phone to Your Surface For GPS

    I have a Surface Pro 2 that is, of course, not GPS equipped. But my Nokia 920 Windows phone is. A Surface CSR recommended that I connect them via SmartGlass so I have a GPS on my Surface. Are any of you doing this? Is it meeting your expectations? I searched on GPS and carefully read the...

    Solved Stylus Only Works When TypeCover is Attached

    I would like to use the stylus when a cover is not attached. Attaching the Microsoft TypeCover restores the stylus but removing the cover disables the stylus again. I restarted Waycom Professional Service. No joy! I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions? Edit, 9/8/14 When chatting...

    Pro 2 Does Not Recognize Type Cover 2

    Thanks for the helpful reply. It's a pleasure to hear from someone who actually knows what they're talking about. Exit worked and my Surface started normally, as you predicted. I'm hopeful that this is the end of the problem. If it reoccurs I'll download smartmontools and check further.

    Pro 2 Does Not Recognize Type Cover 2

    Thanks for the prompt reply, vitriolic as it may be. Well, maybe I listed the wrong app name 'cause I can't look at it (the %$* Surface won't start). But I can't agree with your statement that the app I'm using was designed for Win 7. It's intended to add the Start button to Win 8. So I...

    Pro 2 Does Not Recognize Type Cover 2

    Same story—keyboard not recognized the next time I started it. I cleaned the contacts and performed step 3 (vol and power buttons) several times but no joy. It flashed "Surface" the second time but never started. A menu flashed occasionally, but too briefly to read. I once got to a point...

    Pro 2 Does Not Recognize Type Cover 2

    I skipped the cleaning part. I didn't see how that could be the culprit since it worked when I shut it off. Step 3 worked. Thanks for taking the time to address this.
