Surface Book 2 15″

I just got the Surface Book 2. I was waiting for the 15″ and for the right time to switch from my Surface Book with Performance Base.  I got the original Surface Book as soon as it was available.  It was a great machine, and the unit with the Performance Base gave me more battery life.

My solution was to open up my Calendar in a second window as soon as I opened Outlook, but that was really tedious to have to remember to switch windows instead of using the shortcuts at the bottom left of the Outlook window. Check this out;   File | Options | Advanced – … Continue reading Outlook Hanging with Surface
