One of the guys on the Surface Geeks Podcast said they said they made some kind of adjustment to project the sound forward. Does anyone remember what that was? I could tape something on it but I would rather not do that. Any ideas?
I am unable to pair my Surface 2 and my Nokia MD-12 portable speaker via Bluetooth
The MD-12 is not found by the Surface.
It works fine on my Nokia Lumia 830 (I had to use NFC the 1st time though)
I read that article
but my MD-12 is simply not found by the Surface 2...
Has anyone succeeded pairing Surface 2 and MD-12 ?
What are the steps ?
Thanks for your help.
You'd have thought I'd have learned by now - having already been bitten by the 'oh, you've got a WP7 device - no, you can't have WP8' debacle.
And whilst I understood the rationale behind this decision at the time, it still made me feel very unimportant to Microsoft (I'd only moved over to Windows Phone a few months prior to the big announcement for WP8).
And now it seems like history is about to repeat itself, more or less. OK, the devices in question are a bit older now, but I don't get Microsoft's decision this time around.
Why offer Surface RT / 2 owners an update which will have 'some of the functionality' of Windows 10 only?
It feels like Microsoft are completely embarrassed by the whole Win RT issue. Whilst it didn't turn out all that well for them, the Surface RT / 2 remain, in my opinion, 2 of the best tablets out there. So we can't install desktop applications - big deal - the Surface RT, with the inbuilt Office Applications, does everything I need it to and more besides.
If Microsoft really want to kill Win RT once and for all, give RT device owners the ability to upgrade to Windows 10 fully - with or without desktop functionality. I would be more than happy to upgrade to the 'mobile' version of Windows 10 - the desktop in RT is basically unnecessary anyhow - as long as there are Office Apps, I couldn't care less whether I need to go to the desktop or not to open them.
Someone has already started a vote for Windows 10 on Surface RT / 2 on the Microsoft User voice site - shortened link below - please click and add your support.
We have several Surface Pro 2's deployed at my company that all use docking stations. Every so often, and there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it, the external monitors hooked up to the dock will lose all display capabilities.
I've tried restarting the surface, checking the monitor connections, and running windows updates and made sure all drivers were up to date and current. (Example of one that happened the other day was that one monitor still worked but the other would not. I would go into the Screen Resolution dialogue box and try turning the screen back on but after applying the settings the screen would automatically turn back off. )
The only thing I found to fix the problem is undocking the Surface, unplugging power from the dock, plug the power back in and then re-dock the device. After following these steps the monitors will work fine again.
Like I said, this is an intermittent issue and is hard to replicate but was wondering if this was a known problem or if there is any known fix for it out there??
Thanks in advance for the help.
