    Concentrate your efforts on the Surface Pen (one side button) unpairing issue of the top button under bluetooth.

    Will these updates be applied automatically – or is it a manual process only?

    1. If your device is configured to receive updates through Windows Update, these drivers will be installed automatically via Windows Update.

    Hi
    I’ve had LOADS of problems with the type cover not working when coming out of a lower power state on Surface Pro4 (also with Windows Hello showing “Turning on Camera” – but red light never comes on).

    Are these “known issue”?
    What does “improves keyboard stability” actually mean?! – is this just another way of saying “fixed known bugs with unstable keyboard drivers” ?
