Get up to speed with Microsoft Surface devices and other hybrid laptop/tablet (2-in-1) computers.
- The name Microsoft Surface refers to several computers made by Microsoft, and you can see I have several of those devices here. These are all Windows computers that feature a touchscreen and also work with an optional pen stylus. So from the tiny Surface Go all the way up to the Surface Studio Desktop, you can write or draw directly on the touchscreen while working in Windows. Lots of the Surface computers fall into the category of two-in-one devices because you can use them as a laptop or separate the screen from the keyboard and use 'em as a tablet.
My LinkedIn Learning course is going to show you how to work in Windows 10 with a touchscreen and a pen stylus with a specific focus on the Surface devices and some of their accessories, but this course is also great for people using two-in-ones and even Windows tablets from other brands. We will not be talking about the Surface Hub in this course. That's a more specialized piece of equipment with a few of its own special features. But for users of the other Surface devices or a touchscreen Windows computer in general, this course should be a great way to start learning.
