How do I force apps to run on the dGPU on my Surface Book?
It depends on the app and if it supports hardware acceleration by the gpu. Look in the app settings. It will be on an app by app basis there is no way in Windows, mac os, or linux to automate gpu functions for a specific app. Just for games and the os. There is overal sytem software acceleration control and software from AMD and NVIDIA that help acceleration for games. Support for this is built into the games. Some apps auto accelerate and take advantage of gpu acceleration when available. Not all will show you or tell. You must look in each apps settings and if you cannot find it contact the programs developers. ios and Android are no different. Hope that helps sorry there isn't a better solution. It bares consideration. And a unified crossplatform standard would be better than several seperate proprietary solutions.

Which are the apps that works only on Windows?
If you think about some simple apps made in a few days, then there are many of them but it is not worth mentioning them. For more complex apps I am aware of my Share to Speech, there is also Nextgen Reader, 8zip if you ask about Windows Phone only. If you ask for those available on the Windows Store you can add on top of that StaffPad, Drawboard PDF, my app File Cards…
What is the best way to study PDF files?
1) First of all, do you learn better reading off a screen or paper?- if the latter - print it off and learn as if from a textbookHow to read a textbook- if the former: find a device that suits you most.I like to see the whole document at a glance, if possible, so I use whatever has the biggest screen.2) In order to learn the info in the document, you need to- understand it- encode it- be able to recall it3). For best understanding - learn by making connections with prior knowledge4 essential elements of effective learning4) take notes that will force you to organise the knowledge and hence kick start the learning processHow to take notesI do 2 readings- 1st time to 'get the gist' - the main concepts and the relationships between them, the structure of the knowledge etc.- 2nd - for detailsI do it on paper, usually the 1st reading's notes end up on the document (that's why I print them off), but you can use an app that allows you to highlight and make notes (e.g. GoodReader)The 2nd read notes I do on a separate piece of paper, drawing diagrams etc.5) re-learn/revise the material within 48hrs6) practice recall within 2week (put the knowledge into practice, do practical exercise/problem-solving etc.)hope it helps
How can I get the most use out of my Microsoft Surface book?
Note: All of my comments are in addition to the MS rhetoric that you can find at Surface.com.This will sound snippy and cliche-ish, but…Figure out how you like to “work”.Sit down at a desk and used it in full-laptop/desktop mode. There's something empowering about having so much power and flexibility in such an attractive package.Sit on the couch and use it in your lap. Special hint: keep working/flexing the hinge, it will loosen over time and allow you to open the screen further than when you first bought it. Mine used to stop at around 100 degrees, now it opens to a full 130–145 degrees. I have no idea how long this might take for you… and DON'T force it.Use Cortana. Don't let the tin-foil hats spoil the fun of how useful she is. Teach her to know your voice and then set her to only respond to you. Talk to her while you're in front of the Book… or when you're across the room. I regularly ask her the time if I can't see a clock… and what's next on my schedule. Then I tell her what I need to remember, when/where/for who, and she keeps track of all that for me.Get a “worthy” stand, flip the Clipboard around and use it like it's a skinny all-in-one. This is what they call “drafting mode" but tipped up so that you can use the screen as a monitor. I wish I had a photo of my work setup so you could see what I mean. I lucked into a SVALT D2 High-Performance Cooling Dock … and I haven't looked back.Take notes in your natural handwriting. Use OneNote on the Book in drafting mode. Scribble, draw and doodle like you would on paper. You can also do this with just the Clipboard, but drafting mode ensures you'll make it through meetings lasting more than 4 hours.If you like coloring books… go to the Store and find apps that let you do that. Case in point, I have two or three. :)Sketch… anything. Enjoy the way that the pen on screen feels like pencil on paper. Doodle to your heart's content. Brainstorm on how you want to layout a room in your home.Turn on and use Windows Hello. It works in all rotations of the screen as well.Get a Surface Dock. Use it to your advantage. Get a “permanent” external monitor, heck, get two. And an external keyboard and mouse. Plug them all in to the Dock. Revel in the ability to go from laptop to full on desktop by plugging in one single cable. And in the fact that you now have 3 monitors at your disposal. The thing? You have a permanent setup and of course you can be mobile. * Important Note: They should be monitors with a DisplayPort port and you need to use native DisplayPort (full to mini) cables.If your build includes it, use the dGPU to your advantage. If you have an app or program that needs (or would benefit from) the extra computing power, use it. Just be aware that you have to close those programs before you can detach the Clipboard.Get to know the capabilities of your ginormous track pad. Learn the multi-touch gestures and enjoy using them.Sign electronic documents. For real.Cast your screen to remote displays/Smart TVs. It's easy.Come up with a set of accessories that make up your “travel rig”. I can literally pack the same computing power I use for my desk job in a single soft briefcase with room — and weight — to spare. This includes Sculpt Keyboard and mouse, external battery that can fully recharge the Book from dead, and all the cables/dongles I MIGHT need. Plus external drives, the power block, etc. I could get a flat HDMI external monitor in there too… if I wanted.If you have an Xbox (One, S or X) use it to play games remotely (on your home network). This assumes you've got great WiFi and/or an Ethernet cable going to both devices.I could literally go on — and on — but I think you're starting to get the idea. Once you've done all this come back and we can talk some more. ,)Have fun!
