Surface Pro

  • How to configure the Surface Pro for a new user:

Log on to the Surface.
Open Desktop.
Launch File Explorer (the file folder icon on lower left).
In the location bar, type in “Control panel” (minus the quotes).
Open the “User Accounts” control panel.
Select “Give other users access to this computer.”
Add the user’s Net-ID and enter as the domain.
Click OK.
Make them an Administrator (if desired.)
OK through to the end.

After this, they will be able to log on with their net-id and regular Kerberos password. They’ll have to go through the welcome and setup stuff the first time.

  • Note that MS Office *is* installed, but does not appear by default on the new user’s start screen. They will have to add it to the start screen if they want it there.
