Instead of swipe to unlock, is there a way to do it from keyboard?

they have teamviewer, works great and is free.
Thanks just installed it. Any other good apps to know and install?

Also, when I set up my user ID to log in via a PIN code, there's a number pad that comes up during log-in. The number pad has a square button on the bottom left, that changes when you press into a different symbol. Anyone know what the button does?

This is one of the key aggravating things about Windows 8. Microsoft built a lot of great features but the documentation / user interaction is sorely lacking on this thing. No on-screen help or cue to tell you what something does, or how to access something.

Until MS changes and makes Windows 8 more user friendly a lot of consumers are going to keep balking at it. The MS designers who opted to leave out user cues should be taken out and tarred / feathered.

You can use the touchpad to swipe and unlock, I believe.

On my regular Windows 8 laptop, you can hit the space bar and it will unlock. Not sure if the Surface RT does the same thing... I've applied a screen protector on it so it's off at the moment.

I'm finding that I have to put RT on one side of the table, my full Windows PC on the other side, so I can try to google to find answers on how to use the RT or how certain things work, which I rarely have to do with iOS / Android. Pretty lame. Hopefully Windows 8.1 will be a vast user improvement.

When the RT was first released it came with the preview version of Office. You need to apply the updates.

Charms bar -> Settings -> Change PC Settings -> Windows Update

Note that the first time you perform the update, there will be 20 updates to apply. When they are done, go back and check for Windows updates. There will be another wave of 38. When those are done, repeat again. There will be 24 updates. And when those are done... one more time, there will be 1 more update.

After the dust settles, you'll get the full version of Office.


My updates were a little different. 20 at first with 1 optional (540mb Office). Installed the 20 and rebooted, then installed Office. Rebooted again and now it says 67 updates with 1 optional (Some Windows RT update). Applying these now.

I just attached my Blue Yeti microphone... the RT recognized it, automatically installed the driver for it, and I was able to do a simple recording using a Tape Recorder app I found in the app store. I'm very impressed.

In contrast, on my iPad 4, I have to attach the Yeti to a powered USB hub and connect that hub to the USB dongle in order for the iPad to use the mic.

Can anyone recommend a good audio recording app for the RT?

I recommend Windows 9... seriously..

I've been using Windows 8 on my touchscreen laptop, but 99% of the time in desktop mode only.

Now having to use the metro mode a lot on the Surface RT, it's aggravating. I have to google everything, whereas on iOS / Android it was extremely easy to just figure out because things were so consistent and plenty of user cues.

Just sold the touch cover for 55, meaning I got this thing for ~$160. Not bad.

BUT - there is a single black dead pixel STRAIGHT in the middle of the screen. I dont know if its worth trying to return it for a new one, or if its even possible now that I've sold the touch cover. Ugh. If it wasnt RIGHT in the middle......
Call Microsoft surface customer care - their service is just awesome. You may be taken through a few steps to check if that fixes it, else you will be offered a replacement - and they ship it with next day delivery.
