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.

Am having isuuses with several apps not being able to retrieve data, and frequent messages about play services stopping...so the only advice so far seems to do a factory reset...

But can someone please advise on the following before i do this and end up wiping stuff i need

1- I want to stay with the installed older version of android (5) , how do i ensure it doesn't get updated to a later version?

2- With apps like chrome, will bookmarks and saved login passwords be transferred when i log in, or is there a way to back these up?

3- Does play automatically allow reinstall of purchased apps, or do you need anything else to reinstall paid for apps?

Any reliable apps for doing this, would prefer a backup / manual way to copy unique stuff incase apps dont work so well..

Hi Experts,

My question is regarding the Calendar View in Outlook for Windows.

Usually, using your mouse you can drag and drop a an appointment to change date and time. You can do this also with your finger on an iPad/iPhone, but can you do it on a Windows tablet?

When I hold down with my finger an appointment and try to drag it, it moves the Window and not the appointment. For example, if I drag an appointment to the right for the next day, it behaves like I want to see previous days, as if I am clicking right on the scroll bar.

Thank you,

I got an Amazon Fire HD 8. How can I remove/move around the icons on the Home screen so that the ones I use most often are at the top and the ones I will not be using are not visible. I can see that it is not possible to uninstall these without some Android jiggery-pokery but I want to see if I can at least get them off my home screen or re-organise them...

Javascript routine works on PCs but not on touchscreen phones or tablets:

Zakaria Acharki helped me at www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29129533 with a webpage I designed in 2012 to get it partially working on touchscreen phones and tablets.

Here is a link to the webpage modified so it doesn't send data to me: www.barnwellmd.com/PainDiagram/Testdrawing.html

But this routine which works great with a mouse on a PC does not work on phones or tablets:
function clearGray()
{
	var imageData2 = context.getImageData(0, 0, 700, 643);
	var newPixels = imageData2.data;
	for (var i = 0, il = pixels.length; i < il; i += 4) 
	{
		if((pixels[i] == 255 && pixels[i+1] == 204 && pixels[i+2] == 153) 
		|| (newPixels[i] > 235 && newPixels[i+1] < 150 && newPixels[i+2] > 75 && newPixels[i+2] < 110))
		{
		}
		else
		{
		   newPixels[i] = pixels[i];
		   newPixels[i+1] = pixels[i+1];
		   newPixels[i+2] = pixels[i+2];
		}
	}
	context.putImageData(imageData2, 0, 0);
	context.fillStyle  = "#CDCDCD";
	context.fillText("Referred pain",275,600);
}

Open in new window

This routine deletes the markings not on the body image when mouseup is fired.

This is what it looks like on the pc after swiping the mouse across the entire image: desktop imageThis is what it looks like on my phone after swiping my finger across the entire image:phone image
So on the phone, lines drawn on the image are not deleted outside of the body image.

What do I need to do to get this to work on touchscreens?
Thanks!

I have three Toshiba Encore 2 WT8-B tablets.   32 bit 8.1 Connected is the current OS
the tablets won't activate Windows with the imbedded keys.
Microsoft says the keys have been used too many times...Toshiba support blows.

so, if I want to upgrade Windows to get out of this mess....what is the proper ISO to upgrade a Windows 8.1 tablet to windows 10?

another option is trying to find a good key to enter - so, what kind of Windows 8.1 key works with Connected?

...this is a pain in the neck I just want to go away!

Hi , we just purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 ,and would like to know a few things before we use it...
 
1. What would be the best way to set it up initially?
2.Is there a way to trace the device if ever we lose it and it is offline ?

Any suggestions to make it more secure would be awesome .

I work for a company that the IT department has recently put a policy into place that stipulates all company owned equipment will be brought onto the network for security reasons. In the past year, we purchased a couple of tablets, that were allowed off the network using the office 35 subscription. By bringing the tablet onto the network, we will be able to use the company license for the Office, eliminating the need for the individual cost of the office 365 subscription. Also, by bringing in onto the network, the os updates, security updates, and virus updates will all become automatic each time the tablet is docked.

We only have 2 tablets. One person has already done the process and is working great. The other person is dragging their feet. Their complaints are that the tablets should be viewed as an accessory, not a main computing device. However, they use this tablet 90% of the time. They state that by keeping it off the network, it speeds up and gives more flexibility. They also say that when our network is down, that by keeping the tablet off the network, they won't have any downtime. I tried to explain to them that the tablet is no different from a laptop. Once it's undocked, you can still log in and use it just like they currently do a laptop without being connected to the network.

Their other complaint was they didn't feel expending funds on a dock to complete a counter productive measure is not warranted. The docking stations only cost 70.00

Any suggestions…

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering how I can connect a standard external USB flash drive to a Visual Land Premier 10 (Model: ME-10W).  The best I can tell from a visual inspection of this tablet is that it has a micro-USB port, but, the standard external USB flash drive requires a standard USB port.  This is speculation on my part, but, perhaps there is an external device which can connect to this micro-USB port and provide various USB interfaces including a standard interface for an external USB flash drive.  If so, could someone provide a direct online purchase link for one?  Given this inherent limitation of the Visual Land Premier 10 (Model: ME-10W), I believe this would be the only option with respect to resolving this issue assuming, of course, it is a possibility.  

           Any feedback given to this question will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Hello Experts,

I am writing to see if anyone has any advice on a keyboard cover for an iPad Air 1, model A1474?  I have found numerous covers on Amazon, but there always seems to be some question on exactly which model the given cover will fit, and it seems that there are slight variations in the different gens of the iPad Air that would come into play.

I am looking for something that is fairly durable and highly rated, and would like to have some kind of latch or other device that keeps the cover closed when not in use.

Thanks very much for taking a look at the question,

Russ

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.

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

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
