You can use the Surface Pen to draw and take notes in apps. Mark up PowerPoint presentations, Adobe PDF files, or Word documents just as you would on paper. Or get creative and draw something in Fresh Paint - a drawing app available in the Windows Store. The Surface Pen can also be used like a mouse. Switch seamlessly between touch, pen, mouse, and keyboard. Palm block technology lets you write comfortably without worrying about your hand touching the screen.
A Pen that's ready for the professional in all of us
Experience the ultimate modern writing experience with Surface Pen. Write, draw or mark-up documents, digitally. Take notes to quickly capture your thoughts and instantly convert to text for sharing and searching with ease. Simply click once to open OneNote, or click and hold to instantly access your personal digital assistant, Cortana . The Surface Pen is paired with a Pen Tip Kit to help you choose the tip that feels most natural to you and attaches magnetically to your Surface so you never leave it behind.
Write and draw, naturally
Surface Pen feels as natural as pen on paper; with precision ink on one end and an eraser on the other. Palm Block technology ignores the pressure from your hand when it senses you're using Pen. Now with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity and reduced latency, Surface Pen lets you draw and paint with artistic precision and the control you want.
One click to OneNote or Cortana
Don't let another flash of inspiration pass you by. One click of Surface Pen opens a blank OneNote page. Click and hold activates Cortana and gives you instant access to your personal digital assistant. She can offer time, people, and location-based reminders or even help you book dinner reservations.
Make it yours
Express yourself with one of the vibrant Pen colors designed to mix and match with your Type Cover. Choose a Pen tip that's right for you. Stay with the pre-installed HB tip for writing and drafting, or swap to a 2H tip for detailed drawing, shading and illustrating. Choose from one of 4 tips in our Surface Pen Tip Kit.
The embedded accelerometer senses when you are not using Pen and conserves your battery giving you up to 18 months of battery life.
Your notes, better than ever
Write and draw directly on your screen, convert your handwriting to text, even highlight in PDFs. Clean up is simple when you use the eraser button located on the top of Pen and you can access formatting options using the right-click button on the side. With all your notes digital, sharing and searching is simple.
