This past week I was attempting to set up my Samsung Note 8 to play video to a screen. I bought the adaptor for the tablet but when I tried to connect to the screen at the office my Samsung told me I needed to install Kies – a Samsung software. So I did.
After that several of my apps would not open including Amazon Kindle – and I’m reading a great book right now, Team of Rivals!
At any rate after searching Google and Samsung sites for help I came to the conclusion that I needed to reset my tablet to factory settings. So here’s the wonderful thing about Google, as soon as I restarted my tablet, because it is tied into my gmail account, it began downloading the apps, photos and applications that I had had on the tablet earlier. And so even though it wiped clean my tablet Google did most of the re-installation for me.
Of course I have to re-install Lotus Notes but all the rest is taken care of.
So here’s my warning – stay away from Samsung Kies!
