How to use Windows Ink Workspace on the Lenovo Yoga Book

The Lenovo Yoga Book features a Wacom-based touch panel on the lower-half of the device, where the keyboard would normally be situated. This allows for pen-support within Windows 10, meaning you can take advantage of the many features the Windows Ink Workspace has to offer. Here's how to access and navigate the Windows Ink Workspace on a Lenovo Yoga Book.

How to open Ink Workspace

  1. Tap the Pen icon located next to the system tray clock on your taskbar
