The Microsoft Surface Pro is a notebook with the looks and slim profile of a tablet PC. Its slim body, long battery life and lack of fans make it the perfect replacement for a tablet. Just attach Microsoft’s Surface Type Cover or connect a mouse and keyboard and you’re ready to work with programs like you would on a laptop. Plus, every Surface Pro comes with Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. Here are some exciting things that you can do with a Windows Surface Pro.
View and Reply to Text Messages
With a Surface Pro, you can leave your phone on your charger and still receive and reply to every text message that someone sends you. Simply install the Cortana app, and you’re ready to go!
Become a Wireless Display
If you want to see something from your Android smartphone on a bigger display, use your Surface Pro’s Connect app.
Unlock Without a Password
Turn on Windows Hello and your Surface Pro will use a scan of your face turning Windows Hello into a complete password replacement.
Connect to Accessories without Dongles
Despite its thin profile, your Surface Pro has a USB 3.0 port on its right edge that saves you from needing a dongle to connect your favorite accessories.
Use a Physical Dial to Change Settings
Buy a Surface Dial if you like to draw or want a physical way to change your most used settings on the Surface Pro. This accessory connects to your Surface Pro over Bluetooth. Just twisting it can change your Microsoft Surface Pro’s volume or adjust the width of a pen tip as you draw with a Surface Pen. With the custom tool, you can map the Surface Dial to change whatever setting you want.
Multitask with Picture-in-Picture
You can watch movies and television shows while doing other things on your Surface Pro using Picture-in-Picture.
Scan Your Documents and Whiteboards
Combine Microsoft’s Office Lens app with the 8-megapixel camera on the back of your Surface Pro for a painless way to scan paperwork and documents you want to store on your computer.

Or you can use it in studio mode, which enables the use of the Surface Pen and Dial. The Surface Pen gives you another interface option, allowing freehand note-taking, sketching, drawing, and painting.
