    Hello, I have a question. I also have a live-T112 and I want to connect external screen, and to control the keyboard and mouse. Connect the display to the output screen, mouse and keyboard to USB. And I want to ask whether to display the cursor? A or how he activate it.
    Thank you Jack

    As I recall you have to hit a key to make the mouse cursor appear. Once the console is booted hit F1 on your USB keyboard and the cursor will appear. You’ll have to do this everytime you boot the system though.

    FTR: I could never get an Apple USB keyboard to work on a GLD. Is there some trick?

    Jack,

    Connect a USB keyboard and a USB mouse to your surface. Once the surface has completed its boot process, press the “F1” key on your keyboard. This will make the mouse cursor appear on the screen.
