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 there,

I am using a hybrid tablet pc with windows 10 (with Dockable keyboard and trackpad) however, when I close the table in laptop mode the screen does not shut off and go into sleep mode like it used to I have tried changing settings in the power management screen to no avail. Is there a way to force this in the registry? I have heard that this could be an issue with intel engine management and there are suggestions to roll back to a previous driver I have not attempted this suggested solution yet

Hello everyone,
I have a few Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and a couple of them run really hot.  It usually happens when starting up for the first time that the Surface Pro 4 will run hot and the fan is running constantly for about 20-30 minutes.  Then it seems to regulate and operate normally.
Should this be happening?  Is it possibly hardware or software driven?
Nothing really shows up in the event logs that stands out.

Dear Experts,
Recently, one of my clients requested I look into finding him a good combination of rugged tablet and mobile printer for his workers to use on the road. This is his description:
"They need to connect via cellular, not just wifi.
Print load is small – perhaps 6-15 prints a day – 1 or 2 pages per print… but need to withstand dirt and mild abuse.
Tablet will access internet and use web for application they will be using.
That website may integrate with google maps, and they may use it for navigation, and they may use email app on tablet"

My past experience with rugged tablet is only with Fujitsu, which I do not see anymore, and I want to make sure that I select a combination that will fulfill their needs without being too difficult to connect to Internet, Cellular, etc.  I do see some portable printers with battery, such as
Canon Pixma iP110 or HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer, but I do not have any experience using them.
If you could share some working sample combinations, I would greatly appreciate it.

Good day,

I have a surface pro 3 with thin line crack on it which I believe is causing me one issue. The tablet works great until it's restarted but on restart this gets stuck on surface splash screen. I tried to play with bios setting but there is no setting to disable touch screen.

The only solution is to press and hold power button for 30 seconds and then start again. Do this 4 times In a row and then hour glass appears and it boots up to windows.

I did disabled touch screen drivers in windows but it does not work.

Any possible suggestions. I want to fix this issue without having to fix the screen.

Thanks

That's awesome!  I've never owned a tablet, but I might have to get one if they can do stuff like that soon.

Yeah ever since the Surface Pro Microsoft has been my preferred tablet OS. They do lots of nice little improvements like this.

I've been using OPENDNS on my Netgear R7000 for over a year - it successfully filters out undesirable items from all computers on our home network.  A few days ago I noticed that it still blocks when using tablets (iPads / iPhones) but is no longer work on any hard-wired computer.  Been trying to troubleshoot this for days - no luck.  Have tried all suggestions in their forums (https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988707-Why-OpenDNS-is-Only-Working-on-One-or-Some-of-my-Computers-Devices#scenario2) - no luck.  Anyone else had this issue?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?

Currently our MDM policy blocks our corporate-issued iPads
from accessing iTunes (to prevent data leakage/loss).

There's a number of senior staff who wants to use the
iPads to project out via projector for presentations.  However
our MDM (think it's MobileIron) will enable iTunes access if
we enable this projector access via the iPad's lightning port
(which we use an adaptor to connect to the projector : I
 presume it's the projector's HDMI).

How can we allow projector connection & yet block iTunes
access?  

I'm assuming the data leakage/loss will occur when these
staff bring the iPads home to connect their lightning port
to their home laptop's USB (via an adaptor).  

Any IOS apps that's smart enough to detect if it's projector
traffic or iTunes traffic?  or any way to block sync'ing or
communication with iTunes from these iPads?

Hello.

I need your help. We have a TabletPC (Windows 10) in a domain (DC:Windows Server 2008) and we need to block everything on an account called Tablets that logs on it. Everything has to be disabled, denied, blocked except one running application.
I mean no Internet, no Search function (even if I press windows button and then I write), no CMD, no Windows 10 panels, no Action Center panel, no Control Panel, just nothing.

I need to have this TabletPC in state that user will be able only to run one application and switch user/restart. Nothing else. User must not have any other access.

I appreciate any suggestions... registry changes, policy changes etc. Anything that could help me.

Thank you.

For example, these...

There machines have dual OSs - Windows 10 and Android 5.1, so they look idea as a happy-medium between a Surface Pro-type machine and an Android tablet, at half the price of either one.

But I'm a bit concerned about it being Android 5.1, wereas 6.0 has now been out for 18 months.

Does anyone know if the company are planning to release Android 6.0 firmware for this machine?

Also, any feedback or comments you otherwise have for this device would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Dell Venue 5055 Pro.
Windows 10 32Bit Home.

This tablet has the rear light on all the time.  I have searched and don't see any info on how to resolve.  So I am coming to the Experts instead of wasting hours on google.

If anyone has anything for me to try.  Let me know.

Thanks very much in advance.

I am interested in shared iPads for our users, locked down by MDM, but one of the key requirements is that multiple users can be used, that is the MDM platform needs to support multi-user logon.

Does anyone know of an MDM that can do this?

Hi,

We use FiftyThree paper in our iPhones & iPads.  We try to find it for our tablets and windows 10 devices, but it seems that they only have for IOS platform.  That said, does any EE has recommendation for an apps similar to Paper 53 but for  Windows?

We are a Citrix shop with XenApp 6.5. I only have 200 devices, but over 325 licenses are being consumed. Most by licenses named HTML-XXXX-XXXX, where the X's are random numbers. What are these and how do I eleminate them? I've been revoking licenses daily but I need to solve the root cause here.

I've started purchasing per-user licenses as I will be gradually switching to user from device, but those aren't being issued either, likely because I'm in per-device mode. What is the best way to eliminate these HTML-XXXX-XXXX licenses and transition to the per-user mode?

What are your thoughts on the Surface Pro series? I don't like the single USB port and find the included stylus a waste of time. Performance-wise they are pretty quick but with my work, we've had a few that needed to be blown away already. I've run into issues where it won't recognize the keyboard, etc. When everything works great, they are pretty cool, though.

But for the customers, Surface Laptop is the latest product for Surface product line offering and it is my impression that MS has already stopped the research and development of Surface Pro as there is no Surface Pro 5.
