    If you go back to Windows 7, just be aware next year. I read a rumor that Microsoft will start force-upgrading all Windows 7 and 8 PCs to 10.

    Me? I'm not happy about that either. I use Windows 7, 8, and 10 currently, and I like them all.

    Thanks for that, You. I was playing with it, but don't have a touch screen. It's slow using a mouse, but it works as you demonstrated. The only complaint I can see is it needs at least 2 lines.

    Not enough customization, true. What I also don't understand is why you can't resize anything with the keyboard in Windowed Mode.

    However, there is a separate "on screen keyboard" app that can be resized, but it lacks handwriting recognition.

    Handwriting Recognition in v7 was probably the best feature of the OS for me, besides it being just a really good general OS experience. I have looked into Win 10 and there isn't anything innovative enough in it that would make me want it. Not at all, as a matter of fact. I'm sure I'll probably come around to feel differently some day. All I do is browse, email and have no other devices besides a laptop.
    I am just starting to explore this app, but supposedly MS Onenote has the ability to accept hand-drawn text, and has a search function that will recognize pages of such text. Yes, in Windows 10.

    Perhaps this will help you do what you require?

    OneNote will soon recognize shapes as well as handwriting

    10/22/2015 at 10:00 AM by Brad Linder


    Microsoft’s OneNote apps can convert handwritten notes to printed text. This makes it easy to clean up messy handwriting, but also makes your scribbled notes searchable, since OneNote can index text after it’s been converted.

    But handwriting recognition is old news: soon OneNote will also be able to recognize shapes.

    Microsoft calls the feature Ink Shape recognition, and in November Microsoft will roll out new versions of its OneNote apps for Windows 10 and iOS that include shape recognition.

    The apps will be able to recognize more than a dozen shapes, including circles, triangles, squares, pentagons, and hexagons.
    This was just rolled out in the November Windows10 update.

    It seems that they removed a few features from the tablet PC input panel. In Windows 8, the same panel allowed for 2 lines in hand recognition mode. However, the feature seems a little more polished in Windows 10 and the text doesn't change into the dreadful Comic Sans MS (correct me if I'm wrong) font.

    Hello Shokan, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm afraid the Touch Keyboard (tabtip.exe) replaced the Tablet PC Input Panel since Windows 8.
    That "tabtip" thing won't open so I have no idea what it is. I really hope that windows can re-implement the input panel soon because I really liked the handwriting, especially since my keyboard doesn't function properly and I'd prefer to write on screen instead of using an on-screen keyboard. If there is anything similar please tell me. I wish I could switch back but everything is so confusing for me because I've used Windows 7 for as long as I can remember. (I sound so old)
