    Could I install Windows 10 S on an old Surface Pro 3 as a second device?


    I have an old Surface Pro 3 (i5, 4gb ram, 128gb storage). Would like to use as a general purpose device and wondered if I could install Windows 10 S instead of full Windows 10.

    Only be using it for browsing, streaming video, email and the odd office stuff.


    Thanks

    Windows 10 - Surface Pro 3 - "We couldn't find wireless devices on this PC."

    Hello all,

    I have just completed an update to my Surface Pro 3 to Windows 10. All went good except the device can no longer find the wireless device on the PC. I can't pickup any Wi-Fi network, and I cant pick up any bluetooth devices such as my bluetooth mouse.

    I have tried the steps listed below with no luck:

    Step 1:
    Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and tap or click Settings, tap or click Power, and then tap or clickShut down.

    Step 2:
    After your Surface turns off, press and hold the volume-up button and the power button at the same time for at least 15 seconds, and then release both. The screen may flash the Surface logo, but continue holding the buttons down for at least 15 seconds.

    Step 3:
    After you release the buttons, wait 10 seconds.

    Step 4:

    Press and release the power button to turn your Surface back on.

    Are there any other avenues I should be looking at for resolution?

    Thanks

    Trej
