Navigate through browser windows and documents

Use your tablet pen to quickly move through a browser, a document, or a playlist without using a scroll bar. For example, an upward flick drags the page down and a downward flick drags the page up. When using a browser, a pen flick to the left moves you back one page and a pen flick to the right moves you forward one page.


Perform common shortcuts

Instead of tapping a menu command or a button on a toolbar to perform a common shortcut, such as copy, paste, undo, or delete, you can perform these shortcuts with a flick of your tablet pen.


Customize pen flicks

You can customize pen flicks to perform functions that you use on a regular basis. For example, if you frequently use keyboard shortcuts, such as CTRL+F5 or ALT+TAB, you can assign a pen flick action to do this for you.

  1. Open Pen and Input Devices by tapping the Start button Picture of the Start button, tapping Control Panel, tapping Mobile PC, and then tapping Pen and Input Devices.

  2. On the Flicks tab, select the Use flicks to perform common actions quickly and easily check box, choose Navigational flicks and editing flicks, and then tap Customize.

    In the Customize Flicks dialog box, a menu containing pen flick actions appears for each direction. You can select one action for each direction.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To change a pen flick action, select it on the menu.

    • To restore default pen flick actions, tap Restore defaults.

What is Math Input Panel?
