Set up your Fingerprint Reader

The Surface Pro Signature Keyboard has an optional fingerprint reader. If you have a Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with Fingerprint Reader, here's how to set it up:

  1. Connect your keyboard to your Surface.

  2. Select Start Settings Accounts Sign-in options.

  3. Under Ways to sign in, you'll see three choices to sign in with Windows Hello. Select Windows Hello fingerprint, then select Set up.

  4. Follow the instructions to set up your keyboard with your fingerprint.

Note: If you use your keyboard with a different Surface, you'll need to set up Fingerprint recognition on that Surface too. 

Use the touchpad

Surface Pro Signature Keyboard comes with a touchpad, where you can use gestures to get around your PC instead of a mouse. To learn more, see Touch gestures for Windows.

Protect your screen

When you're finished using your Surface Pro, fold Surface Pro Signature Type Cover over the front of the screen to make it sleep and keep it safe from scratches and damage. When you're ready to use it again, open Surface Pro Signature Type Cover and press the power button to wake up your Surface.

Care for Surface Pro Signature Type Cover

To keep the material looking like new, gently wipe with a slightly damp, lint free white cloth (to avoid color transfer) or screen cleaning wipe.

If you spill something on the material, try to clean the stain off within 30 minutes to help prevent it from setting. For most stains, a simple solution of warm water and mild soap (like hand soap) will do. Using swirling motions, gently clean using a clean, white, lint free cloth dampened with the soap solution, and then wipe dry using a clean lint free cloth.

Note: Don’t apply liquids directly to your Surface.
