Trackpad Settings app for Windows 8 updated to fix Surface Pro issue

This weekend, we reported on an issue that was being felt by owners of Microsoft's Surface Pro ever since the last firmware update for the PC was released earlier this month. A number of users posted on Microsoft's support forms after that update was released claiming the optional keyboard covers for the PC were no longer recognized by the Trackpad Settings app for Windows 8.

Microsoft said it was "aware of the issue and is working to resolve it as soon as possible." Today, the Trackpad Settings app received an update that is supposed to fix the issue "which results in the App not recognizing your Touch or Type Cover." The update was also referenced in the company's support forums and at least Surface Pro owner claims in the message threat that the app update has now fixed his problem with the Touch Cover.

While that bug has now been corrected, there are some other minor issues that are still affecting Surface Pro owners. Perhaps the two biggest ones are improving the WiFi reception for the tablet along with fixing problems when using the Surface Pro's pen in certain applications. Microsoft has promised to give continuing updates for both the Surface Pro and Surface RT tablets in the coming months.
