    Customize Surface Pen

    I have the same problem except when filling in a Word template (.dotx). Checking the pen box as described above does not stop the pen from drawing when I'm selecting a text entry box. Frustrating. I must be missing a setting somewhere?

    Display Driver Crashing

    I feel stupid but I can't figure out how to get to the command line in Win10 in order to try the regedit. Just spent 15 minutes looking around and clicking on icons that have no pop-up explanation when I hover the cursor over them. It must be Microsoft's way of telling me I'm too stupid to edit...

    Display Driver Crashing

    I have SP4 8gb ram 256gd SSD and haven't done anything to it other than normal stuff almost everyone might do. Hardly added any software to it yet but my SP4 has the same issues you describe. This happens quite a lot, fortunately it doesn't take the computer down with it. It does seem to be...

    Left/right swipe to nav for/back in browser

    I really like the feature in IE Modern where I could swipe left/right to go to previous or next page. Is there any way I can enable that feature in MS Edge? Also, I use my Surface in tablet mode a lot and with my SP1 the web page I was viewing would automatically scroll up when I touched a form...

    Cheaper Docking Station for SP4?

    Plus, it's only $30 cheaper. Technologists are spoiled these days. My first laptop was $6500.00 and had a screen so tiny it was difficult to get much work done. The docking station cost more than $200. A lot more.

    Official I pre-ordered a Surface Pro 4

    Just noticed UPS tracking says my SP4 was expedited and is scheduled for early delivery tomorrow (Mon), previously scheduled for Tues. Yeah! Weird thing is I live in Seattle area, UPS tracking started by departing from Ontario, California bound for Louisville, KY. So my SP4 will have toured...

    Not an artist - will I ever use the pen?

    I use a pen all the time on my SP1 because I rarely have the keyboard attached (or even w/me) and it comes in really handy for all the legacy programs that are not designed for touch. I don't use it much if at all for drawing/note taking because the nibs/screen is too slick to feel natural but I...

    Official I pre-ordered a Surface Pro 4

    Ordered a i5, 8GB 256GB this afternoon. This was a no-brainer because I'm coming from the original Surface Pro. Woo-whooie!

    Benefits from SP1 => SP4?

    Thank-you all for your great responses and especially the really detailed one by Goodbytes! I had to pre-order a SP4 after reading all the pluses. But one thing no one addressed. Should it have better sunlight readability than my SP1? I find it unusable on a sunny day and barely useable on a...

    Benefits from SP1 => SP4?

    I've never used a SP2 or SP3. I'm coming from a SP1 w/i5 4GB 128GB. What will I notice the most moving to a SP4 w/i5 8GB 256GB? I use PhotoShop, Canon's Digital Photo Professional, Word, Excel, Modern IE (tend to have a lot of tabs open, 20-40) and am often multi-tasking w/ split screen. I...

    Pro 4 vs. Surface Book vs. iPad Pro...

    I'm getting either a SP4 or Surface Book but it seems like I'm not understanding something. The Surface Book appears to have a bigger screen with more resolution, more battery life and a keyboard, yet it weighs less than SP4 with a smaller screen, less battery life and no keyboard. How can...

    MS Word template on Surface Pro

    I'm a light user of MS Word for decades. Recently I bought a MS Office subscription and installed it on my Surface Pro. I'm encountering confusing behavior when I try to save a Word Template and I suspect it's more related to Win 8 and or OneDrive than the tablet itself but someone please help -...

    i5 Surface Pro upgrade to i5 Surface Pro 3

    Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll be upgrading very soon. I do wish they offered 8MB ram with the 128GB SSD (because w/cloud services 128GB is all I need).

    i5 Surface Pro upgrade to i5 Surface Pro 3

    I've had the original Pro since initial release and it has been a reliable everyday and travel workhorse. I use it mostly in tablet mode and with some difficulty (and the pen) use PS3, Canon's RAW converter, MS Word, MS Excel, etc. but it's really best when using the metro apps which are...

    IE re-opens closed tabs

    I guess I'll have to mess around with the settings. Any ideas on which settings might cause this behavior?

    IE re-opens closed tabs

    Do you think settings in the desktop IE affect the behavior of the modern IE?

    IE re-opens closed tabs

    True, but in my case instances of the browser (tabs) that I have closed by clicking on the tabs "X" will re-appear after the Surface had been suspended or even re-booted. These tabs will keep coming back after repeatedly closing them until there are so many tabs open the browser crashes and...

    IE re-opens closed tabs

    Not actually solved, just a work-around. Tabs should not re-open after they've been closed, even if the app is not shut-down.

    IE re-opens closed tabs

    Yes, they are all tabs I've opened previously. I think I may have a work around, it appears to work the first time I tried it. I wasn't aware that IE doesn't actually close (anymore) when I swipe downward. Now I swipe down and pause at the bottom until the app flips over. This closes IE and it...
