    The touch keyboard in Windows 10 includes the handwriting input panel layout.

    The handwriting panel allows you to write in it with a pen (stylus) or your fingertip to enter text into any app.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17074, users get to experience a new way to handwrite on Windows. Typically handwriting is done in a panel that’s separate from the text field and requires users to split their attention between the handwriting in the panel and the text in the text field. The new handwriting experience brings handwriting input into the text control.

    To invoke the experience, just tap your pen or fingertip into a supported text field and it will expand to provide a comfortable area for you to write in. Your handwriting will get recognized and converted into text. If you run out of space, an additional line will be created below so you can continue writing. Once you’re done, simply tap outside the text field.

    If something gets misrecognized or you would like to edit what you have written, the same gestures that are available through the handwriting panel are also available, like the new insert gesture Microsoft had added recently. Overall, Microsoft believes moving handwriting into the same location as the text will create a more comfortable, confident, and direct experience.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off the Embedded Handwriting Panel for your account in Windows 10.
    Note   Note
    This experience currently works in all XAML text fields except the Microsoft Edge address bar, Cortana, Mail, and the Calendar app. These teams are working on making the experience more tailored to their applications. This embedded experience will *only* appear if you’re using a pen to tap the text field – if you use touch, the existing handwriting panel will be invoked.
