    Weird problem at one side of the screen

    My Surface is sick, some symptoms listed below . . .

    - I seem unable to close a tab in Edge by clicking on the X
    - Clicking the X when opening File Explorer window results in no action whatsoever.
    - Swiping down from the top to close a full screen program does not work.
    - Swiping from left to right seems to work ok

    I did find out that when I switch off rotation lock and turn tablet to portrait or upside-down landscape I can close tabs without any problems.

    My system consists of: Surface Go Intel Pentium 4415Y 1.6GhZ with 4GB RAM and run Win 10 in S mode version 1903 build 18362.10024 in the English language. 64GB storage , Win 10 in S mode , Edge , Office 365 , No physical keyboard , No mouse.​.

    Any suggestions ?

    Do you have a "pen" you can use? If so start up an app with pen input and try to draw in the area of screen you suspect to be malfunctioning to test it.
    Sorry, I don't own a Surface PC so that's the best idea I could think of.

    Thanks Pejole, you where right !

    Used a graphics program set to full screen and then started drawing with my finger. Seems to be a screen issue indeed. In certain areas I was unable to draw.
