  1. Docking Station


    I have a Laptop that connects to a docking station via USB. I have 2 monitors and the laptop. When I disconnect the laptop from the docking station, all the open windows goes onto my laptop. When I connect my laptop back to the docking station. The windows stay on my laptop. Is there a way for the windows to go back to their positions they were in before disconnecting from the docking station? Like a setting for the windows in a docked status and a setting for undocked

    :)

    1. I cannot connect to home Wi-Fi off the docking station but not on docking station.

    3. Other devices connected to home Wi-Fi has no issue.
    4. What steps can i take to resolve the issue other than updating Wi-Fi adapter driver?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.


    • Make sure the power light for the docking station is on

    • Make sure the monitor is getting power

    • Make sure the cable is connected properly to the monitor

    • Unplug and reconnect the Mini-DVI adapter on the back of your docking station

    • Try flipping the connector for the adapter over (turns out some adapters can go in upside-down)

    • Take the Surface out of the docking station then put it back in


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
