It seems that more and more users are having difficulty with their Surface Pro 3 devices running different versions of the Windows 10 operating system. An important issue is the reception process of the “synchronization” setting. It uses about 25% or 30% of the Surface Pro 3 device CPU in most cases. After following the instructions below, you’ll be sure to get the process from your host to configure the sync in Windows 10, so you don’t have to worry about the device’s high CPU usage.
Most Windows 10 users have tried to disable the sync feature on the system. Unfortunately, this is only a temporary solution, as it will reappear in a few minutes. In the next tutorial, we will implement a script that will test the sync function in your system and turn it off whenever this script appears. Note that this is only a temporary fix, but we only have it until Microsoft updates the Windows 10 system and prevents it from happening again.
