Tonight in Redmond Microsoft is pushing out the very first update to the Display Dock used for Continuum on phones.The update takes the firmware of the Display Dock from version 3.0 to version 4.0, and there is no changelog posted yet (but there is a link to a 'What's new' that is not yet refreshed).Updating the Display Dock is relatively easy and only takes a few minutes.Users should be connected to the Display Dock through the USB Type-C connector.
NOTE: The Plot command is synonymous to the Display command, and either can be used with identical results.This command clears all highlighting and temporary drawing, and then redraws the model according to the current graphics settings.The GUI tool bar button for executing this command is: Two related commands are: Graphics Flush redraws the graphics without clearing highlighting or temporary drawing.On the phone, navigate to the Gadgets app and choose the HD-500 listed on the menu.Once the app is open choose the ellipsis ('…') at the bottom of the display and pick Check for updates The phone will then take over and download the new firmware and install it to the HD-500 Display Dock.While we can't stop the update process from happening for the majority of updates, what we can do is stop it from updating drivers to versions that deviate from those that are working, stable and preferred by YOU to be there. Start by right clicking the start menu button and selecting Control panel, or navigate to control panel however you normally would do so.You can get to the Control Panel quickly, by calling up the run box with the Win R shortcut and then typing "control" and hitting Enter. Once the System properties window opens, click on "Advanced system settings" on the left side of the window. Windows 10 should no longer "automatically" update your driver settings.Maintaining updated Display software prevents crashes and maximizes hardware and system performance.Using outdated or corrupt Display drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail.In the Advanced system properties window click on the hardware tab and then click on "Device installation settings". If you've installed Windows 10 recently or have updated to the more recent 1151 build update, your setting will look like this instead. Keep in mind this means you will need to manually install updated drivers for any hardware that you need or want to run with a newer release which may require you keeping tabs with the hardware OEM's product page for any devices you desire to do so for.If you wish you may also choose the "always install the best driver from windows update" option instead of "never install drivers automatically" if you wish, which will allow you to perform the windows update right click search for drivers from within the devices properties or in device manager, manually, which you cannot do with the other option enabled.
