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.

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

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

           George

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

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!!

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?

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,

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

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!

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..
