HP Compaq 4200 series PCs - Configuring the Tablet Pen

Use the pen to input data into applications, as well as to select and activate items on the screen as you would with a mouse.
You can write with the pen in pen-specific applications such as the Tablet PC Input Panel, in all Microsoft Office applications, and in most other Windows applications and utilities. The information you write on the screen with the pen can be filed, searched, and shared among most Windows applications.
Using and storing the pen
The pen includes the following components:
  1. Pen tip
  2. Pen button
  3. Pen tether eyelet
  4. Pen eraser
Hold the pen as if you were handwriting with a standard pen or pencil. Position your hand on the pen so that you will not accidentally press the pen button. Write on the screen with the tip of the pen. As you monitor the movements of the pen, focus on the pointer on the screen, not on the tip of the pen
The pen enters information into the tablet PC whenever the tip of the pen is within 0.5 inches (1.27 cm) from the screen or a pen-activated button on the tablet PC. Use the pen as follows:
  • To select an item on the screen as you would with the left button of an external mouse, tap the item with the tip of the pen.
  • To double-click an item on the screen as you would with the left button of an external mouse, tap the item twice with the tip of the pen.
  • To select an item as you would with the right button of an external mouse, press and hold down the pen button as you tap the item with the tip of the pen.
To protect the pen when you are not using it, insert the pen, tip first, into the pen holder on the tablet PC.
Performing other procedures
In addition to emulating mouse clicks, the pen can be used for the following tasks:
  • To display the pointer location, hold the pen tip immediately over any location on the tablet PC screen without touching the screen with the pen tip.
  • To display the menu options related to an item on the screen, tap the screen with the pen tip.
  • To write with the pen, write on the screen with the tip of the pen.
  • To press a pen-activated button, tap the button with the tip of the pen.
  • To erase with the pen, hold the pen with the eraser-side down and move the eraser over the writing that you want to delete.
Setting pen preferences
Pen preferences, including pen calibration, are set in the Tablet and Pen Settings window of the operating system. The preferences include settings that optimize handwriting recognition and menu display locations for either right-handed or left-handed users. To access the pen settings, choose the Tablet and Pen Settings icon in the Control Panel.
  note:
You can also change the pen settings by choosing Tablet PC Settings from the Q Utility. See the Q Utility topic for more information on using this utility.
The pen can function at the default calibration or at a calibration set by another user. However, HP highly recommends that you use the pen only while it is calibrated to your personal handwriting and mouse action motions. Calibration optimizes pen performance for all users and particularly for left-handed users.
As you perform the calibration:
  • Tap the pen in the exact center of each of the calibration markers. The calibration markers are displayed on the screen as plus signs (+).
  • Be sure to calibrate the pen for use in both portrait and landscape orientations.
  note:
General pointing device preferences, such as pointer speed, click speed, and mouse trails, are set in the Mouse Properties window.
Changing the pen tip
Use the clamp packaged with your pen to remove the used tip. To remove the used pen tip:
  1. Use the clamp to grasp the pen tip.
  2. Pull the tip out of the pen.
To insert a new pen tip:
  1. Insert the new tip into the pen until fully seated.
