HP PCs - Using a Pen to Draw or Ink with Windows Ink Workspace (Windows 10)

This document applies to HP computers with Windows 10 2016 update.
The latest Windows 10 update adds a new feature called Windows Ink Workspace. If you have a digital pen connected to the computer, you can access Windows Ink functions such as Sticky Notes, Sketch Pad, and Screen Sketch.
The Ink Workspace is accessible from the notifications area on the desktop. To open Windows Ink Workspace, click the Ink Workspace icon on the taskbar.
  note:
The Windows Ink Workspace icon appears only if you have an active digital pen attached to your device. If you don’t have a pen paired with your device but still want to access Windows Ink Workspace, right-click the icon on the taskbar, and select Show Windows Ink Workspace.
