I really do love my Surface Pro and RT. But it has one small limitation. The build in kick stand can only be opened in one fixed position. The Surface Pro kick stand angle is already slightly adjusted compared to the Surface RT but again it is one position only.

When I picked my Surface Pro last week a day after the release day (Blizzard Nemo 2103 conditions kept me at home) I also picked up the Microsoft Wedge Touch  Bluetooth Mouse (Surface edition).

Well that didn’t do it. But I have found a way to fix it. Because without internet connection you have no way of installing another update or fix. The following steps below will guide you to Read more

It’s a pain in the neck to remember all of these. Wouldn’t it be nice to just Read more
