Surface Touchscreen Troubleshooting

Check the display panel carefully. If the glass on your Surface touchscreen is cracked or broken, touch may not work.

Sometimes it has been found that if you have trouble touching just the item you want, consider using a Surface Pen or another capacitive stylus.

Clean your Surface display panel with a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water or eyeglass cleaner. But never spray directly on panel.

Sometimes non-responsive screens back to normal after a simple restart.

Uninstall and reinstall Touch Screen driver via device manager. Make sure the related driver is the latest one.

  • Open device manager
  • Locate Human Interface Devices.
  • Right click on HID-compliant touch screen > Uninstall

Calibration is another tool which is used for Touchscreen troubleshoot.

  • Type Calibrate in the search box
  • use the arrow keys to highlight Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input, and then press Enter.
  • There is a Reset button which can be used to get factory settings.

Make sure that your Surface is not adjacent to  other electronic devices ,which can interfere with the touchscreen or make the cursor on your Surface move around unexpectedly.

How To Defer Feature Updates In Windows 10 Insider Preview Build

With Feature Update Microsoft adds includes new capabilities and improvements to the operating system.

This Feature Update gets automatically installed to your system through Windows Update. Microsoft releases two Feature Updates annually-generally one in March and the other in September.

I have observed that many people don’t like to add Feature Update, they are happy without it. Many don’t have happy experiences with new Feature Update. Many suspect that their systems were better before installing new Feature Update.

Now You can easily defer new Feature Update to 1 year.

Step by step instructions:

  • Open Settings
  • Click Update & Security
  • Click Windows Update
  • Click Advanced options
  • Choose when updates are installed.

In the drop down menu You will find two options: Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted), means the updates is ready for most people and Semi Annual Channel means it’s ready for widespread  use in organizations.

If it’s a personal computer then keep Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)

Now change the value to 365 under A feature update includes new capabilities and improvements. It can be deferred for this many days.

By default A quality update includes security improvements, It can be deferred for this many days=0

Keep it as it is.

That’s it-now new Feature Update will be installed on your system after full 1 year.
