Many Surface Book owners have reported their devices are overheating after installing the Anniversary Update. The most surprising fact is that this happens even when users aren’t running high-demanding tasks. It appears that simple actions, such as surfing the Internet are enough to make the Surface Book overheat.

This is not the first time when users have complained about overheat issues after installing the latest Windows updates. Back in June, Windows 10 Mobile owners complained about overheat problems after installing build 14364.

Today, just like in June, Microsoft’s Support Team hasn’t been able to offer a fix for this issue, although other Surface Book users have confirmed they are experiencing the same problem.

Users are complaining the Surface Book overheats on the Anniversary Update

I have a Surface Book i7-6600U CPU @2.60Ghz 281 Ghz, 16GB with Windows 10 pro. Recently after the anniversary update my surfacebook started to overheat. Just opened over 10 tabs in Edge, No intense gaming or watching movies.

Hope someone is also having the same problem. By the way the screen gets hotter while the keyboard is dead cold. ( this might indicate the processor in the screen is used for everything).

Users haven’t confirmed if the overheat issue occurs when they turn on Cortana and pin it to the taskbar. Oftentimes, the culprit for this issue is Cortana,. If you encounter this problem on your Surface Book, you should turn off the assistant and unpin it from the Start screen.

Many Windows 10 Mobile users have confirmed this action solved the overheat problem for them, and maybe it can also help Surface Book owners as well. For lack of a better fix, give it a try and tell us if this quick workaround saved the day for you.
