    Touchpad issue after latest Surface update

    After a 12/19/2017 update I could no longer use the touchpad to scroll in Excel 2010. I assumed the problem lay with Excel and spent the last couple of days trying various fixes. Then, I thought perhaps a recent update to Windows 10 or the SP4 might be the culprit. Sure enough, as soon as I...

    Update to new OS version with USB?

    Hi all, Out-of-the box Hubs often need an OS update. That takes a while to download (every time) and some customers don't have WSUS. I'm installing quite a few and this delay usually means I have to leave and return the following day! Is there any trick way to download new OS versions to say...

This is not an issue with my machine or my software...it is...
