    ...I don't know about anyone else, but I received a huuugggeeee number of updates this evening for my SP4. The strange thing is that many of the updates were listed twice during the download and install, but the installations proceeded routinely and nothing got hung up or caused any trouble. Post updates, my SP4 is working normally...!

    Interesting... I see the same thing for my SP2017. It has a bunch of stuff from Intel Corporation. So far, so good...

    I think I might have received mine yesterday, there was an upgrade but I didn't notice any changes. Have to go into settings and check, wish the article was more specific.

    What I'm trying to locate is this screen.
    And yes, I know about the Vol Up + Power combination, but this one looks like it is accessible from inside Windows.

    Meaning you can actually use touch in it?
    Hah, I thought you still need a keyboard attached.

    Nope. Unlike many other tablet PCs, the Surface Pro 4's UEFI is fully touch-enabled.

    I have the 3, but it should be the same, no?

    Hot damn!
    It wasn't as pretty as on the 4, but there was a mouse pointer (arrow) that responded to touch, and the battery setting was called Kiosk mode, but it worked.

    Only issue now is that if I want to bring it with me, I pretty much have to reset the UEFI and then charge it over night (upside is I should have a stronger battery), but hey, that is what I have the Go for. Thanks for illuminating me.
