DOWNLOADThe Surface Dock Updater

When updates are available for the Surface Dock, you can use the same method to deploy them as you are using for other Surface updates. As with Surface updates, users can receive the updates via Windows Update when the dock is connected to a Surface device, or you can visit the Microsoft Download Center at to download the files directly.

If you are looking for a way to update multiple docks in the least amount of time, you also have the option of downloading the Surface Dock Updater tool from the Microsoft Download Center at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=46703

  • Surface_Dock_Updater_v1.0.8.0.msi

As always, these updates may also be made available via the Windows Update service. When Surface updates are provided via the Windows Update service, they are delivered in stages to Surface customers. As a result, not every Surface will receive the update at the same time, but the update will be delivered to all devices.

Thanks,
