While Microsoft is still rounding up a new fix to the Wi-Fi connectivity issue bugging its tablets, it seems that it may have to add another little problem to the list affecting its Surface tablets.
The newest problem Redmond has to deal with is something that affects the Windows key (or Winkey for short) that does not seem to work at random times.
A few users have reported the problem on the company’s official support forums, and a Microsoft representative has just confirmed the bug and promised a fix that should most likely arrive in one of the upcoming Patch Tuesday update cycles.
A Surface team member said in a short post on the forums:
“We are aware that the Windows Key does not work every time and we are checking into it. Thanks for the feedback, I’ll add your information to the documentation I have for this issue.”
This issue, it seems, was first reported all the way back in November and while there is no fix available at this point in time, the company most probably is working on a patch as of this writing.
Still, from the outlook it seems that the issue should be an easy fix for the software giant, and nowhere near the Surface Wi-Fi connectivity problems that have affected some of the tablet owners.
Microsoft itself has admitted that the dynamic nature of the Wi-Fi bug meant that it had some problems replicating the issue. And even though the company addressed the problem in two of the most recent Patch Tuesday updates, it has promised a more comprehensive fix soon.
