    Did you mean that your Surface RT running 8.1 fails to recognize your Lumia 1020?

    Ok. I'll edit the thread title and move it to the Surface RT forum, since it sounds like it is related to the Surface running a beta OS, rather than an issue with the 1020.

    All bets are off since you are running a beta OS. you should restore back to 8.

    Same with my 920. I think everyone running the beta has run into the same problem.

    Quick fix for your mobile device not working in Surface 8.1 preview ( mine Lumia 520) just go to settings>change pc settings>update & recovery>recovery>refresh. Just wait until it finishes and plug in your device and voil.
    Tried and tested on Lumia 520

    Not my hard work as found this on MS forums - thanks AlphaPapa 
    dkp23 and HeyCori like this.

    I did a complete reinstall of Windows over the weekend (unrelated issue) and now my SRT recognizes my 920 again. I didn't realize how annoying it was not having this feature until it was gone, lol.
