I was wondering how IT support is for the surface hub?

 

There doesn't seem to be an option to remotely connect to the hub and control it. I can imagine some users have problems or questions with the hub and they phone IT, but by not being able to remote

Side-bar: does anyone here actually have Creator's Update running on a Surface Hub, or are we all waiting?   Thanks - didn't know if it's just me. :)

Hello friends,

I can't get enough of this video. This is truly an example of how the best technology makes the invisible visible and helps us expand our boundaries. Hope you love it, too!
