    Setting a pen on win10


    Hello forum,
    I am trying to set a pen stylus with my windows10.
    Under control panel>hardware and sound>pen and touch>I dont have the option to "change tablet pen setting".

    Does it mean that my computer is unable to use pen (hardware issue) or does it mean that I need to update the system or install a driver

    see attached screensnap.

    Hi Gordon,
    Thanks for you answer. It should be easy, but it isnt. Have a look on my screenshot. I get different option than you do when choosing Pen and Touch on Control panel. Could it be that my computer is not supporting Pen ? (brand new computer, one of the most expensive on the market. .. doesnt make sense..)

    Go to your system page and see if Pen is listed there:

    Thank you theveterns for your answer.
    This is what is listed in my system page. It has touch support, but not pen support.

    This means that my computer is NOT compatible with a pen . correct ?
    Is there any way I can go over it? install a driver or something update my computer?

    @SwissExel - You will have to get a pen solution and connect to your PC.

    There will be a driver you would have to install - then Windows 10 will do what is needed to give you pen support.

    A very good solution could be from Wacom, here's link for dl. manuals (.pdf) for diff. Wacom models:
