  1. mouse without borders does not work with keyboard LED light

    I have the Surface Keyboard, which has LED lights on the CAPS key, the SrollLock key, and the NumberLock key. However, when I move my mouse to the client PC, the keyboard's LED lights do not work on the client PC. They work while the mouse is on the host PC. Please fix.

      • Medical vocab

        would be great to have entire medical dictionary added to the vocabulary list and an option in settings to turn on or off medical vocabulary.

        • Workflow memes unpredictable

          I love the meme maker in Word Flow. But, I find I can't predict when it will show up nor how to activate it when I want to make a meme. Can you add a button for it or add some help that explains how to do it?

          • Implement a tool to extract the phonetic Information from a spoken name to enhance the cortana to speak Names with correct pronouncement

            Implement a tool to extract the phonetic Information from a spoken name to enhance the cortana to speak Names with correct pronouncement

            Cortana is not able to speak out difficult names like Jacubowsky (Cortana says: something like Jakubaufski)

            It would be fantastic to have a tool to let Cortana learn the correct pronouncement of Names. additional it would be great to get the Phonetic written to save it with contacts, so cortana can speak the name correctly.

            • Screen Recording Application

              I think , you have to give a screen reordering feature .

              You already provided something to do that but it is not up to the mark.
              like it does not work on Desktop Screen etc.

              • Time to prioritize:The apps on windows 10 mobile platform or windows phone platform are very few

                The admin said in comments to different ideas that making an app available on Windows Phone platform fits into the experiment planning of each project. If you look at the recent endeavors at garage,none of the apps are available of consumers; even the list of apps available on Windows platform as a whole are very less. Most of the apps are discontinued as the projects are completed and none of the new apps are available on windows phone or Windows 10 mobile. It would be great if you develop app for windows platform and use the different bridges provided by…

                  • Next Lockscreen: Improve clock legibility

                    Hi. Depending on the background image, the clock digits can become hard to read, like if the clock happens to be displayed on top of a white region of the background image.
                    Would it be possible to have some kind of semi-transparent "black" background layer behind the clock digits (but on top of the background image). Ideally, the user could chose the color and tranparency % to be used.

                    • Next Lockscreen: Quick note taking

                      Would it be feasible to implement a kind of quick note taking feature? That would save users from having to unlock their phones and launch their note-taking app.
                      I suppose it isn't possible to have some kind of "app whitelisting"? That would be another way to realize that idea: Users can specifiy which of their apps are accessible from the lockscreen without unlocking. (Like the camera)
                      TIA, Thomas

                      • Offer the option to disable/remove features

                        There should be an option to turn OFF the extra features that aren't wanted like GIF or search, or the the Globe icon.

                          I think there should be an option for turning off the the letter popup because many people don't like it.

                              As title states using your keyboard has been one of the few highlights that a forced upon work iPhone has given me. I've recommended to 4 people all who love as much as me. I know Microsoft has tons of their apps on Android why not this? Is it because Android wouldn't support the amazing one hand view? Still be worth it!

                              • Add Cortana Reminders as a list alongside Wunderlist tasks in Arrow Launcher

                                Should have been this way first. Cortana Reminders are baked into Windows, Wunderlist isn't. Microsoft needs to consolidate this all down into one universal cross-platform task system.

                                    • Silent install for Snip

                                      There is a partial silent install for Snip (/install /quiet) but this still makes snip run after installation. Can it please be changed so that it does a complete silent installtion.

                                      • Add option to remove period

                                        I hit the period instead of space all the time and with the option for double tapping space to type a period there is no need for the button on the keyboard. Would be great to have a option to get rid of it so the space bar is bigger (like the board or built in apple one)

                                          Can you add an option to turn off the keyboard clicks when using it?
