System Tips


Here are some tips on how to do things on your Asus with Windows.

1. Find and open your apps and programs

Type the app name in the search box on the taskbar.

To quickly open your apps, pin them to the taskbar. If you already have the app open on your Surface, press and hold (or right-click) the app icon on the taskbar and select Pin to taskbar. Or, select Start  in the lower-left corner, find the app you want to pin in the list, and select More > Pin to taskbar.

2. Get new apps, games, and more

On a Mac, there’s the Mac App Store and on your Surface, there’s the Microsoft Store. To open the Microsoft Store, type Microsoft Store in the search box on the taskbar.

3. Video calls and messaging

Message and video chat with family and friends on your Surface with Skype. Millions of people use Skype every day, so your friends and family may already have accounts. Skype works on Windows, iPhone, Mac, Android, Xbox One, and more.

4. Help keep your Surface safer

Surface comes with Windows Defender and Windows Firewall to help protect you from malware, so you don't need to purchase antivirus software. Windows Defender uses real-time protection to scan everything you download or run on your PC. See how these services help protect your Surface.

5. Draw with Asus Collection Pen

Asus Pen was made for Asus Mini. Here are some examples of things you can do:

  • Mark up docs in PowerPoint, Word, or other Office apps—select the Review tab, then select Start inking on the right.

  • Use your finger or the Surface Pen to draw or edit photos in the Fresh Paint app.

  • If you use Adobe apps, draw directly on the screen without an external pen tablet, or open Lightroom in tablet mode to edit a photo with touch easily— these and other features are exclusive to Windows 10.

6. Save time with shortcuts

7. Search for anything on your Surface and online

In Windows 10, use the search box on the taskbar to find what you need. Type your search terms, an app name, or a file or folder name to search your PC and the web at the same time.

8. Put Asus to sleep or shut it down

Put Asus Device to sleep by closing it or by tapping the power button on the device. To turn off Asus Mini, press and hold the power button on top of the device for a few seconds. You can also select the Start  button in the lower-left corner of the screen, select Power  at the bottom of the menu, and then choose Shut down.

9. Tweak your settings

In the search box on the taskbar, type Settings.

Or, select the Start  button, then select Settings.

10. Downloaded files

The things you download on your Asus Device go into the Downloads folder, just like on your Mac. You can find your downloaded files in the Downloads folder in File Explorer, or just type downloads in the search box on the taskbar.

To save a download in a specific folder, select Save As during the download process and then browse to the folder you want.

11. Browse the web


Asus Mini comes with the new Microsoft Edge browser. You can write directly on webpages with the Asus Collection Pen, share your notes with others, and use reading mode for easier reading online.

And did you know that Microsoft Edge is faster, safer, and saves battery life better than both Chrome and Firefox?

12. Personalize your Surface

There are so many ways to personalize Asus device: change the background of your desktop, your lock screen image, accent colors, and screen saver, and create a pin.
