Microsoft has released a new update tool for the Surface Dock, the port replicator for a number of Surface devices which use the Surface Connector.

The Surface Dock transforms your Surface into a desktop PC. By simply plugging in the Surface Connect cable to charge your device you can access external monitors, a keyboard, mice, and more.

The new Surface Dock update tool replaces the older tool and offers the ability to automatically update the software in the dock, as it runs in the background on your Surface PC. Microsoft says the older tool should no longer be used.

The new tool is available as an MSI and can, therefore, be pushed out easily by IT staff, and can be manually downloaded here.

Surface Dock features: 

  • With two high-definition video ports, a gigabit Ethernet port, four high-speed USB 3.0 ports, and an audio output, you’ve got all the connections you need in a sleek, compact design so you can do your best work.
  • Surface Dock uses Surface Connect technology, which enables high-speed transfer of video, audio, and data over a single cable, keeping your desk clutter-free. It also has a Gigabit Ethernet port giving you a fast, reliable connection to your network.
  • Surface Dock is quick and easy to set up since it’s plug-and-play. Attach your peripherals to Surface Dock and then attach the magnetic Surface Connect cable to your device. It’s that easy.
