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.

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

John

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.

The regular email app on device isn't good enough.

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.

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

Over mobile and using CSS, how can I put a white border around where it says "Make an Impact Today". I can get it to work over desktop but not over smaller devices like phones and tablets. Here is the url... http://ccdenver33.staging.wpengine.com/get-involved/

Any ideas experts?

We are creating an adaptive CSS layout for varying resolutions as well as web, mobile, tablets, etc.

I notice that when I load the page with my Display Scale and Layout at 100%, it loads as designed.

But if I change my Display Scale to a different size, such as 125%, it doesn't resize it to fit, instead it just makes it larger and throws things off the size of the page.

Is there something we're missing in our CSS that accounts for the Display Scale?

ASP.NET, VB.NET, CSS.

Thanks!

Hi, I am a member of a website that has a number of AVI videos. I only use IPad Pro and do not own a pc/laptop.

I do not have access to ITunes. Is there a way I can watch these AVI movies directly from the website on my Ipad. I tried using VLC and input the http address but it does not seem to work.

Appreciate any assistance.

Looking for inexpensive but effective way to image/Manage Window 10 PC's.  We currently only have HP Laptops & Desktops & Fujitsu Tablets.  We had VDI but ultimately found it wasnt saving us enough time or money for our envirnoment.  We have around 30 Fijitsu Tablets,  160 HP Desktops & 60 HP Laptops.  I want to easily repair a Windows 10 OS setup & if possible customize the image as much as I can but can use GPOs to manage all other settings.  Thanks in advance.  SSCM is to expensive for us.

Starting with Angular 5

Learn the essential features and functions of the popular JavaScript framework for building mobile, desktop and web applications.

We are looking at a few Windows tablets, mainly
1. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
2. Lenovo Miix 510
3. Acer Switch 3

Q1:
Does the Windows comes built-in with a Windows Firewall?   Planning to use it for customers to generate
e-Tickets at counter when they touch it but we want to filter it such its open ports are accessible only to
certain designated IP

Q2:
Can we harden it?  Is a tablet's Windows 10 the same as normal PC's Windows 10?

Q3:
Can we install AV and whitelisting tool (from McAfee) on tablets' Windows 10?

Q4:
What about patching?  Is it the same as normal PC's Win 10 patching or there are
special security patches (ie from Acer, Samsung, Lenovo) or the patches are from
MS ?

Hi,

I've just bought my first Kindle. I've read through the instruction book that comes loaded on it, however I have 3 questions:

01 - I plan to highlight various areas of books and make a lot of notes about various things in books, so that i can get back to them at a later stage... is it possible to sync these notes and highlights to an online account so that if i lose my Kindle or change to a new one, i don't lose my highlights and notes?

02 - When i turn off the Kindle, i still see an image on the screen... is there a better way to turn it off that just pressing the ON / OFF button once?

03 - How can I favourite books that I like on Amazon (web / desktop), and get them to appear on my Kindle?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has come across an issue I am having.
 Excel 2016 kind of locks up and flashes and Excel sheet items become enlarged. This is on Surface Pro with Windows 10
and only happens to Excel files that are opened from email or clicked on. If I open Excel first, then use Excel to open the file, no issues.


I do intend to try
aka.ms/surfacerepair for surface diag tool.

Just wondering if anyone was familiar with this issue???


Thank you..

Ok, I have a bunch of HP Elite x2 tablets with fingerprint readers.  Once I join them to the domain the fingerprinter reader "windows hello" goes gray and they can't use them.  I can't find a GPO on my 2016 server to enable biometrics to allow these to work.  Anyone run into this and find a solution??  HP was of no help.
