A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

Hi,

I have this as part of a different issue I posted here on EE, but that's gone quiet, and wanted to repost this as a new issue.

We have an online video having issues with the audio not being on by default.  This only occurs in IEv11.  I spoke with an MS Premier engineer and he mentioned it seems the code for the video is set to be disabled for tablets and enabled for desktops.  The newer laptops do have touchscreens available, and we were wondering if this then considers a touch-screen enabled laptop as a 'tablet' and so disables the sound toggle by default.  I tested several different laptops, and all of the touch-screen ones had the setting disabled, whereas the non-touch screen laptops had the audio toggle enabled by default.

I went through Device Manager and disabled/uninstalled the 'HID compliant touch screen'; no change.  I also went through and disabled several different 'touch' related registry entries (hkcu and hklm\wisp\touch), by setting them to 0; no change.

I checked the BIOS as well, and do not see any touch-screen related settings there.

Are there any other touch-related settings I should be aware of that can be disabled?

Thanks,

Good Afternoon Experts,

Just a general question really..

I have about 20 tablets that are being used by our employees who are out and about around the country.

I was trying to find out if there is a way to do a remote desktop connection to the tablets so that i can run maintenance jobs on the tablets.

Instead of the employees bringing them back to the office to have the maintenance jobs done to save time and effort.

There's an interesting new feature for Surface Pro devices that helps prevent battery death:

Great tip for Surface Pro users Brandon, thanks for sharing it.

I often leave my (now old) iPad2 plugged in 24/7 next to my bed because I use it to listen to Audio Books that I buy from Audible and think something like that would be a top idea for that too. I'm surprised that IOS and Android developers haven't thought of including a feature like that for their devices. Wonder where I could make such a suggestion? Would make the various battery saving apps available all but obsolete.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I wish to help a friend reset his Zeki Quad Core tablet (Model Number: TBQG884B).  I did notice a Reset which corresponds to a tiny hole.  I assume I will need something very tiny to insert into that hole to commence the resetting procedures.  This is speculation on my part though because I am not entirely sure what to expect.  I did mention to my friend that all data on the tablet will likely be lost because a reset returns the device back to its original default manufacture settings or when he first bought it.  He said that everything on the tablet is backed up to his laptop.  So, he seems to be fine with that part of it.  

          Any step by step guidelines for resetting my friend's Zeki Quad Core tablet (Model Number: TBQG884B) will be greatly appreciated.   I do have a serial number on the back of this tablet and will be furnished if needed.  

          Thank you

C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

We have some Dell rugged tablets with on board verizon cellular data. We want the tablets to prefer wi-fi over cellular data and, according to Microsoft, this happens as a default behavior. In our testing this is not the case. I know how to use netsh to configure priority for wlan or mba... but I am not seeing a way to configure wi-fi over mba. Do one of you have a solution to forcing a network preference for wi-fi over cellular?


Thanks!!

We currently have 200 android tablet devices in a CLOUD only environment, no on prem.

What i would like to do is for the tablets to have restricted internet access, what is the best way to do this? Do not want any app installation or the use of a subscription such as openDNS where there is a cost associated to it. Cant use free as there are restriction on additional entries (may be wrong)

Anyway, would love help with this and what I can do to achieve this, as I said we are cloud based and using MerakiSM MDM to manage these. Step by Step would also be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi all
We have a number of Android tablets, some of which are misbehaving. I need to be able to save (or send) the system logs (and maybe dmesg as well, if poss) continuously to the removeable SD card, or alternately, to send the logs out to an FTP server. Can someone help me do this please? I will not be able to "root" the devices.
Thanks in advance

I'm on Office365
I have a Samsung tablet , I want a decent signature with a logo and certain format.

On the outlook app , the logo can't be copied and the format changes once I hit save.

OWA doesn't work well on the tablet.

Any suggestions?

I have a Galaxy Tab S 10.5.  I was thinking about getting the Tab A 8.0.  I would like some opinions if I should or not.  My biggest problem is the screen is smaller.

Need large display area tablet which is pretty low cost

I will be giving tours and need a cheap tablet with a large display area. I think Android would do the trick due to the higher cost of iPads.

I need to have a WiFi connection and the ability to scroll through images, which will be hosted on my website. I do not need much at all in terms of memory or fancy hardware.

I would consider used, as well, for a lower price.

Even old versions of Android OS are fine, at least I think so.

What is the largest display area for a Tablet?

How about Windows? Acer?


BUT, I need a large display area. Are there any enhanced display options which make it easier to show a small group the images? This kind of upgrade (to a less antiquated version) I would consider, IF it meant the display was easier to see.

So, what can you suggest for me?

Thanks

New info...

This one seems pretty large and pretty cheap:

I have a Bell (my ISP) 2000 modem/router.  It is connected directly to the PC beside it by way of an ethernet cable.  This modem/router sends a wireless signal throughout the house.  The wifi signal is picked up by other PCs, laptops, tablets and 3 televisions.  I would like to setup a simple home network for my PCs, laptops and tablets.
How do I do this?  I would like to do this without disrupting the existing wifi system throughout the house.
Thanks,

Hi,

We have an Amazon Fire 7 tablet.

The plan is to use the Fire 7 tablet as a device to display information.

The problem is that when the tablet goes to sleep or runs out of power, the next time the tablet is turned on or woken up, the lock screen appears.

I would like to configure, with the use of an automation app, a function that will activate when the Fire 7 tablet displays its lock screen and automatically unlock by way of a swipe up action on the screen.

Is there an automation app that can do this, mainly a free app.

Thanks,
Robbie

My device: Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T580 (10.1 inch tablet)

Version: Android 7.0
Kernel Version: Fri Dec 8, 2017

I am trying to root and load TWRP.

Pre-requisite: Installed Windows Samsung Driver to Windows 7, the tablet is recognized when plugged in
as a USB device.


On Android device, Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T580:

1. ->Settings ->About Tablet ->Build Number (keep pressing build number)

2. "Developer Mode Has Already Been Turned On" message pops up

3. ->Developer Options, OEM Unlock is turned ON

4.  Downloaded files:

            Odin3_v3.12.7.zip
            Magisk-v15.3.zip
            twrp-3.1.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar
            twrp-3.2.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar
            no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip  

Note: I tried both versions of TWRP, neither worked.


5. Turned off tablet. Unplugged USB. Held down Volume Down, Home and Power.
This took me to a Warning page. Has an option to Continue with Volume Up pressed, or to
restart phone with Volume Down pressed.

6. Volume Up took me to Download page: being able to flash files from the computer to the tablet.
USB is connected at this point, I connected it AFTER I got to the download page. Should I connect BEFORE
going to the download page?

7. On the computer: Open up Odin (Odin3 v3.12.7.exe)

8. Press the AP button and check the checkbox next to AP button.

9. Choose file: twrp-3.1.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar or twrp-3.2.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar from the Windows dialog box in Odin and press Start.

10. Computer …

USB port intermittently and repeatedly fails.

When I go into Device Manager, 'USB Composite Device' typically will have a yellow exclamation mark.

I have tried right clicking and updating it, but I am always told the most up-to-date driver is installed.

I then right click and 'uninstall' it, reboot, and everything returns to normal again until the next time...which is usually within 1-2 weeks.

I do typically connect this to a DisplayLink pluggable 3.0 USB docking tower. However, this is a company machine and we all do the same with the docking tower and I seem to be the only one having this repeat issue.

Thanks for any suggestions. - JH
