    How to Hide or Show Windows Ink Workspace Button on Taskbar in Windows 10


    Starting with Windows 10 build 14328, you can try out the new Windows Ink experience for yourself. Windows Ink puts the power of Windows in the tip of your pen, enabling you to write on your device as you do on paper, creating sticky notes, drawing on a whiteboard, and easily sharing your analog thoughts in the digital world. Windows Ink is also integrated into apps like Maps, Microsoft Edge, and Office.

    If you have a device with an active pen like the Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book Ė Windows Ink Workspace is enabled by default and accessible via the pen button in the notification area of your taskbar. You wonít see this button if your device does not have an active pen paired with it. However, for those of you who donít have a device with an active pen but want to try out Windows Ink Workspace, you can still manually enable the Windows Ink Workspace button.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 14342, Microsoft has updated the Windows Ink Workspace icon on the taskbar. The new icon shows a more expressive ink stroke and is more consistent with other icons in the notification area. The new icon also looks better at wider range of sizes.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18912 mentioned in build 18917, some Insiders may notice that Windows Ink Workspace has changed on their PC. Thatís because we are improving Windows Ink Workspace experience. As part of that, they will notice that Windows Ink Workspace is smaller with a direct link to our Microsoft Whiteboard app, providing you with rich ideation and collaboration capabilities. If you used Sketchpad, donít worry. We saved the sketch you were working on (in your Pictures folder). In addition, the Windows Ink Workspace allows you to quickly capture your screen and annotate it with the improved Snip and Sketch app. We heard your feedback and we have streamlined the Windows Ink Workspace for you. Stay tuned as we continue to evolve!
