Seriously. This morning I’ve received 5x as many Monday morning emails as normal, all from companies trying to promote their product/webinar/service.
Don’t send these to me to view first thing Monday morning. It might seem like a good time, but would you really want to read your email on a Monday morning? I didn’t think so.
This helpful tip came from a long Microsoft community thread. Until Microsoft gets a fix for this, the best result is to disable Wireless N mode on the Surface, which is the cause of the connection problems.
1) Open regedit.
2) Go to the following tree location:
3) Find “AutoUse40Mhz” and set it to “0″ (“1″ is default)
4) Change the entry below this named “Band” to “4″ (“6″ is default)
Reboot and Surface will connect using only the 802.11 b/g band, instead of the N band.
This has been working well on my Surface RT so far. Hopefully Microsoft gets a permanent fix for this. :\
Thanks to steabert on stackexchange for posting this helpful tip!
In Gmail, simply search for “size:xxxxxxxx“
This undocumented search parameter will help you find messages larger than the size you searched for.
The search parameters are in bytes, so 10485760 = 10MB or 52428800 = 50 MB, and so on.
EDIT: As of November 15th, Google has officially released support for this feature
“To find emails larger than 5MB, you can search for size:5m or larger:5m“
