One thing in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update

Lucky for you we have some HP Elitebook 2760p on the way. Related image Microsoft is pushing that forward even more with Windows Ink: the ability to draw and annotate with a pen in all kinds of useful ways. For example, you can jot down notes in the Sticky Notes app, which on its own is mildly convenient. But Windows 10 is smart enough to recognise words like “tomorrow”, turn them into links that Cortana can use to set reminders or perform other tasks. This works with other words too, including places that Bing can point to on a map. Windows Ink is built into plenty of other apps, too, like Maps (which lets you measure distances between two points by drawing a line) and Microsoft Office (which lets you highlight text with your pen or delete words by striking them out). And, of course, it’s built for artists as well, which can use a pen for digital drawing in plenty of different apps. There’s a virtual ruler complete with a compass to help you draw straight lines at the correct angles. A new “Ink Workspace” also arrives in Windows 10. Press a button on your pen–if your pen has a button–and you’ll see a list of apps that support ink input so you can quickly start writing or drawing without fumbling through desktop windows. You can also click or tap the pen button that will automatically appear in your taskbar’s notification area. If you don’t have pen paired with your device, you can right-click the taskbar and select “Show Windows Ink Workspace” to enable it manually. More Windows 10 apps will gain inking support, too. The Pen settings page at Settings > Devices > Pen now allows you to choose what happens when you press the button on the pen–for example, you could open the OneNote app directly. You can also choose to ignore touch input on the screen while using the pen, ensuring you don’t accidentally tap anything while drawing.
