- Easy to use
Published on: 15 February 2019
Surface Pen places creativity back in your hands giving artists and creators a way to express themselves digitally in a tactile way. Write, draw, paint, compose music - the possibilities are almost endless.
Together with the Surface Dial (sold separately), you can find a whole new world of ways to create, work and express yourself.
The Surface Pen finally gives a feasible option for creating and solving maths problems on a computer by allowing you to simply handwrite fractions, indices and other symbols, so you don't have to spend ages digging through symbols to find.
Studies have shown that handwriting can enhance learning, compared to typing. Write your notes on your Surface device using the Surface Pen and it can automatically convert to text if you have OneNote (sold separately as part of Office).
The Surface Pen is more than just a stylus. It has shortcuts built in to increase productivity. Press the top button to take a screenshot or twice to activate Cortana(1) or flip it upside down to use the end as an eraser.
