Windows 10: Trying to set up new tablet

    Trying to set up new tablet

    RCA Cambio W101 V2 2-in1 (detachable keyboard). Spent days trying to figure things out, found stuff by accident. Touch screen, I'm also using a touch "pen".

    Can't figure out how to "drag" things
    Can't move window by putting cursor at top edge
    Can't size windows to fill screen. Can maximize them separately, but can't get it so all of them always come up full size. Got the cross with the 4 arrows and found out how to size it by only using arrow keys, but later ones won't come up full size.
    Accidentally got my Google desktop shortcut, but can't figure out how to get it on the taskbar.

    I'm not computer-smart, really confusing. RCA User Manual and youtube reviews not any help, mostly just showing where things are, etc. Have laptop with W8.1, tried to put W10 on so both are same, but it wouldn't 'take' (is the time up to change?). W10 seems like simple things are harder to figure out how to do than they were in W8.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I also have an RCA Cambio 10.1" 2-in-1 Tablet with Windows 10

    1. Can't figure out how to "drag" things
    2. Can't move window by putting cursor at top edge
    3. Can't size windows to fill screen. Can maximize them separately, but can't get it so all of them always come up full size. Got the cross with the 4 arrows and found out how to size it by only using arrow keys, but later ones won't come up full size.
    4.Accidentally got my Google desktop shortcut, but can't figure out how to get it on the taskbar.
    1. You can drag an drop by tapping and holding on an item to select it, dragging to a new position and then releasing it.
    2. Push on the top edge of a window, keep holding, and move elsewhere.
    3. There are different methods for the different kinds of windows: Browser (I.E.) windows,
    Windows Explorer windows, MS Office windows, Dialog Boxes, etc. You need to tell us specifically what kind of windows you are referring to.
    4. Right-click Google Desktop shortcut, and select: Pin to TaskBar

    Hi, thanks for the welcome (not first time here, but been a long time). Also, what is difference with "+Reply to Thread" vs "Quick Reply"?

    Glad to see someone else that has same tablet. Being an "RCA" (oddball for a computer?), was worried nobody would know a thing about using it (but seemed good for the price when I bought it, so......)
    Maybe this thing is defective, just doesn't do things the way you say.....

    1. Drag/Drop - for example, my google dsktp shrtct - Can move it to another spot upon desktop (Sometimes...a box comes up asking if I want to "move here"....sometimes it does not)......but it wont go on to taskbar.
    2. Push top edge of window - I do that, keep holding down, move finger or pen or cursor (using touchpad) wont move.
    3. Using IE.....any windows I bring up wont come up full size even after going to trouble of moving all the sides with the arrow keys on one of them (after I get the cross).......when I move cursor to one of edges, the double arrow wont change the window size.
    4. A "right click" on a desktop shortcut - the menu that comes up does not show "Pin to Taskbar" - I clicked on "send to" also to check that, it still does not have "Pin to Taskbar"

    What a I "missing" something?

    Are you currently running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?

    What version of the operating system are you running? Windows designed for home users, or Windows Pro?

    Do you have a USB mouse that you can use with the tablet?

    If you did not complete the upgrade and activated the installation of Window 10, the free upgrade offer for the general public ended on July 29, 2016. If you qualify for the use of assistive technologies you get an extension of the free upgrade offer. However, assistive technology products are intended for people with significant vision, hearing, dexterity, language or learning needs.

    The tablet came with W10 home installed (I did mention in first post how I tried to put w10 onto my laptop so laptop would be same as tablet). I use a usb mouse with my W8.1 laptop, but want to use touchscreen/pad/pen with tablet for it being easier/more "compact" to do things, not needing a surface to use mouse upon, etc.

    I think....... I recall I did put W10 on the laptop way back, but comp fouled up, had to reset it back to the way it came with 8.1, never got around to putting W10 back on again, so now stuck using 2 different OS. The time was up in July, guess that's why it wouldn't "take"?

    When you say you have a 'pen', are you talking about a stylus, or something else? (See image at bottom of page)

    As far as the RCA Cambio goes, you may want to consider doing a Recovery. You can either keep your files or remove them, and then reinstall Windows.

    To do so, tap the Windows icon in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen and go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery

    Tap Get started and then select an option to:
    -Keep my files
    Removes apps and settings, but keeps your personal files.
    -Remove everything
    Removes all of your personal files, apps, and settings.

    Whatever apps you have installed will not remain.

    If Windows 10 was installed on the laptop, then, that changes the story. If you upgraded the laptop to Windows 10 taking advantage of the free upgrade offer on or before 29 July 2016, the laptop will activate online automatically as long as you install the same edition of Windows. A 'license' was stored digitally on Microsoft activation servers and you do not need a product key when installing Windows 10 again.

    However, if you had problems with it after the install, you need to make sure you meet the requirements for installing Windows 10:

    Holy moly, RCA recovery? Damn, just bought it. I have had such problems and bad luck with computers. Got fed up with laptop, bought another one, an HP, direct from HP (current one is Acer). Many hours on phone with HP support, shipped back to HP twice. Told them I want refund, if not, I'd be smashing it with a hammer, and letting others know of incredible problems I had with HP (I was at first one week over their 30-day refund policy). They gave me option of HP store credit for full amount it cost me, or a 75% refund, I took the refund. Think Acer issues maybe due to it having been dropped on floor.

    I guess the "pen" is a "stylus", looks like the picture....I thought they're often just called a "pen", just use it same as finger, moving it on the screen....isn't that a normal thing for touchscreens?

    Almost positive I recall doing the free upgrade to W10 on laptop, remember printing out and going by the HTG article on doing it. I met all the requirements. But, when I just tried again, wouldn't go all way thru, but I can't remember now exactly what it said was the reason.

    If you just bought the RCA Cambio, you should be connecting with the RCA people, instead of coming here.
    We cannot cover your warranty service, etc.

    RCA will provide you assistance.
