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.

OK I have two pieces of hardware:-

Fusion5 10.1" 2in1 Google Certified Android Laptop Tablet PC - (Octa core Processor, Android 8.1 Oreo, 2GB RAM, 32GB Storage, Dual Cameras, HD IPS, Bluetooth Tablet PC with Docking Keyboard)

... and:-

HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer

I want to run a mobile project where I print Haiku's as I create them onto A6 card. I have checked the connectivity and all is well.

So I would like to load an Android word-processing App that is quick to set up and use ideally with a template sized for A6 card and the font set up ready to roll.

The icing on the cake would be to have templates with a choice of coloured/patterned borders too to save preprinting selections to print on.

Can anyone suggest a suitable App, it doesn't necessarily have to be free?

Hi all,

I have a lot of tablets which used to sign in automatically by registry edits managed by GPO:
reg_login.png
Because of security policy's i now need to cancel the auto sign in but i still want to autofill domainname and username. So the user should only enter his password. Like this for example:LoginSc.png
Deleting the default password did not work. Any idea's?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Experts,

My company has 9 Samsung Tablet A, 8.0".  The Android version is 8.1.0.  One of the users deleted a picture from the gallery on one of the tablets.  He called me to see if I could retrieve it.  I understand that the Samsung tablets do not have a trash can; therefore, the picture is permanently deleted; however, I understand that there is some Android recovery software on the market that will recovery deleted files from tablets; therefore, I checked into some Android recovery software.  Even though most of the recovery software says it will recover from your phone, it also appears to work on your tablet as well.  I tried one piece of software, Coolmuster's Lab.Fone for Android; however, it appeared to not even look at the files deleted from the gallery.

So, my question for help is:  In your experience, what is the best software (it doesn't have to be free) to recover deleted files from a Samsung tablet's gallery?


Thank you,

We have a kiosk tablet [Microsoft surface] when the application is running there is no way out of the application without a password so access is restricted to the OS, but there is a loophole if you attach a keyboard and press the Windows key. Is there a way to set up that if the tablet detects a UBS being connected it should email me a picture?
I created a task schedule as following
Tasktrigger:  on event, Log: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-PnP/Device Configuration, Source: Kernel-PnP, Event ID:410

But when I set @ action send email I get the following error
The task definition uses a deprecated feature, based on what I see on the internet this will not work and the workaround is to run a script I tried 3 different scripts but none worked see attached.

Also this will only send me a notification but not snap a photo, I need to know who it was that violated the company policy.

The guide I have for setting up a tablet was written for one running Windows 8.1 & mine is running Win 10, there are some settings I cannot find to make the required changes & they are listed below, if anyone can tell mje the equivalent or if these are longer in use with Windows 10
Thanks!

In the Windows 8 start menu, turn off live tiles and remove all shortcuts

Disable all Win 8 Charms, Flicks, and Corner Navigation

Turn App switching off

Turn off Auto Brightness

Enable “When I sign in or close all apps, go to the Desktop instead”.

Disable Panel Self-Refresh.

I'm setting up a tablet, right out of the box, that will be used with a restaurant point of sale system & I don't want to sign in with Microsoft or join a domain - how do I get past this? If I recall, in the past there was a 'skip this step' option, but I'm not seeing that here...

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 blurry screen
Research: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/all/surface-pro-4-display-520-graphics-flicker-blurry/4cd65b6b-6fc3-4506-87f6-102b21491f27 and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3025083/windows-scaling-issues-for-high-dpi-devices
Recommendation: Execute Microsoft Surface diagnostic tool to see if that correct the problem

The Microsoft Store representative said to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 but that did not work.

The problem appear to happen when the Surface is hot.

We have 5 ipads used by some of our employees. I set them up with an apple id and logged them into the ipad. The problem is if I need to wipe the ipads there is an activation lock and I need their apple id to unlock. So my concern is that is they leave employment and I cannot get their apple ID password, the ipad is bricked?

I have tried to reset the password, but the phone number on their account is their cell phone, which I don't have access to.

1. Is there a way to wipe the ipad and remove the activation lock without their apple id? Will apple help since it's a corporate owned device? Do I need some type of MDM?

2. Should I be setting these up differently to prevent this issue?

Thank you.

I'm looking for a low to midrange tablet. It can be in used condition. It doesn't need to be high performance. It does need a screen that is easily 100% visible under bright outdoor conditions. Android or iOS, either way. I just need to be able to see a full color display outdoors in broad daylight. Any common screen size will work (it shouldn't be huge but it would be an added bonus if it weren't tiny).

Well I just bit the bullet and bought an 8" tablet called Amazon Fire which I really like because the case is made for it which makes it slimmer by design, and 8 inches with the case is not any bigger than most books at the bookstore. The 10" was too large for my liking.  I'll carry a laptop for those needs. It seemed to be the most popular one at Best Buy so I got it.

Now, it won't accept Android apps from Google Play, only Amazon Apps which is a deal-breaker for me, so I am off to hunting again.

Assistance in finding the best Google Android 8" tablet is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

In this doc from MS it says for O365 mailbox:

Exchange ActiveSync device limit The maximum number of Exchange ActiveSync devices per mailbox = 100

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/servicedescriptions/exchange-online-service-description/exchange-online-limits#exchange-activesync-limits

Does it mean 100 tablets, Android phones or Iphones can be used at the same time? Like if all 100 devices send or sync emails at the same does it suppose to work?

I doubt because I have less than that and some users says some time they can't send and have to try many times.

What is the real limit of number of simultaneous connections?

Also 100 limit does it include other connections too or just activesync?


Thanks

Has anyone ever configured an android tablet that only allows 1 application to run upon login?  

I have a client that is asking for 30 android tables to be configured.  They are going out to patients.   They want the tablet configured to only prompt for a password to login and then only allow web browser usage after logging in with no access to anything else.   Can someone explain how to do this?  I am assuming WiFi will need to be allowed as I am unsure if these tables will come built with 4G or not.  

This is in case they are stolen there is nothing they can do with them otherwise.   I may be tasked with setting up 30 of these.

Hi,

During O365 mailbox setting in my Android tablet there are 2 cases:

1- Use secure connection (SSL): checked by default

2- Accept all SSL certificates: Do I need to check it as well?
