Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video The handwriting panel, part of Learning the Microsoft Surface.
- We talked about the on screen keyboard in another movie…but we skipped over the handwriting feature.…Now I want to spend some time with that.…And I want to start with an application…where I would typically write some text.…So I'm going to go into the Start menu…and I'll swipe down to go to All Apps.…Scroll all the way down.…So I want to go into this folder…labeled Windows Accessories…and launch WordPad.…Now, you can use any application…where you would typically type text,…like, Microsoft Word,…but this is going to work well for this example.…Now I'm just going to hit the plus button down here…on the bottom right of this window,…just to zoom in and make it a little bigger on screen.…
Okay, so now I need to open up…the on screen keyboard.…So I'm just going to tap in the body of the document…to make sure my cursor is there.…And then I'm going to tap on the On Screen Keyboard…button on the bottom right corner.…And now, of course, that opens up…the on screen keyboard, but I need to go…to a different mode in the on screen keyboard.…
