Questions and Answers

My tab is just showing the unlock sign?

I have microsoft surface and right now it's just showing the unlock symbol which if I click, nothing happens. I don't know if touch senses doesn't work on that or there's any other problem.


The Microsoft Surface isn't actually an Android device. It runs on Windows 8, which is Microsoft's unified operating system for tablets and PCs. To sign in to your Surface, just swipe a finger up from the bottom of the screen and enter whatever password you've set.
