During Windows Build this year, one of the more interesting announcements made was around a product called Windows Ink. With the latest Windows 10 Insider Builds and Windows 10 Mobile Builds, Windows Ink has become available for those to try.
Windows Ink is a Microsoft based program that gives users with pens, ways to taking screenshots, writing on those screenshots, marking up maps and photos, or just simply drawing. It also makes Windows 10 doodlers for those who dabble in that trade.
What Is Windows Ink?
Windows Ink is an internal project at Microsoft, and is harnesses the power of the pen on Windows 10. Users can create sticky notes, doodle on the sketchpad, sketch all over their screens, and open apps compatible with Windows Ink.
Users will be able to then use these drawings and sticky notes, to integrate them with Cortana. With the initial releases of Windows Ink on Windows 10, Windows Ink doesn’t fully work with Cortana, but Microsoft has stated this will come soon for users.
Windows Ink Brings Creation Tools To Users
While Windows Ink surprised users at Microsoft Build, many didn’t expect Microsoft to release it so soon. Now, for those with Surface Pro 3, Pro 4, and Surface Book devices, it means drawing tools are available in an amazing tool.
The Surface Pro line of laptops and tablets are perfect for Windows Ink, and Windows Ink lets creators use the pen surface in great new professional ways. It’s still got a ways to go, but its free, and built in the latest Windows 10 Insider releases.
If you’re on the fast ring of the Windows 10 Insider program, try Windows Ink. It’s a pretty cool tool, and great for those with pens.
