How to install Windows Ink apps for Windows 10

One of the new features on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is Windows Ink, which expands on Microsoft's vision for digital writing on PCs. An all new Windows Ink Workspace is added to the taskbar which lets users with an active pen access core features such as writing sticky notes, doodling in a sketchpad, or annotating screenshots with Screen Sketch. The workspace also makes it easier for users to find apps that support the use of an active pen.

  1. Tap the Windows Ink Workspace icon on the taskbar.
  2. Tap Get more pen apps under the Suggested area.
