    Windows Ink

    Will Windows Ink support a Wacom digitizing tablet?

    Glad you asked this as it's something I've been thinking about too. If an app supports pen pressure from a Surface/Surface Book screen, then you'd expect it to be able to support pen pressure from something like a Wacom/Huion tablet too. Although rotating the ruler or canvas might be a bit tricky without a touch screen, however they *could* potentially allow that to be done with a trackpad or a keyboard shortcut key/drag for desktop users instead?

    I think people who already have a graphics tablet will probably stick with their usual Photoshop/Krita/Manga Studio, etc. tools rather than use the Sketchpad app, but things such as drawing directly in the Maps app like they showed in the Mount St. Helens demo at //Build/ looked kinda cool. In that demo he also mentioned allowing the ink to dry, but I don't know if he meant for the 3D part of the Maps stroke to work, or whether Windows Ink has build-in brush stabilizer that can be toggled on/off too.

    So I too would be interested to know if anyone has tried any of the Windows Ink apps with an actual graphics tablet, as opposed to touch screen tablet?

    I asked Wacom support and they say it works perfectly :)
    Thank you very much for contacting Wacom customer support.

    The tablet works perfectly with windows ink, In fact that is one of the services that the tablet driver uses in order to work.

    If you have any other question or problem please let me know.

    Best regards

    I had a feeling it would, but thanks for confirming.

    I tried as mentioned above but it only solved half my problem. After doing so, i was able to right click easily on files and applications without getting the 'not responding' error from file explorer. But still the problem persists when i specifically right click on any folder in the file explorer. The moment i right click on a folder in file explorer or desktop, it freezes and i have to restart the file explorer again. This thing is bugging me for so long. Please try to help me fix it.
