Using the touch screen (select models
only)
The touch screen allows you to make selections or activate items on the screen using a pointed object,
such as the pen or your fingernail.
Calibrating the touch screen
The touch screen can function with the default calibration or with a calibration set by another user.
However, it is highly recommended that you use the touch screen only while it is calibrated to your
personal handwriting and mouse action motions. Calibration optimizes touch screen performance for
all users and particularly for left-handed users.
To calibrate the touch screen:

Select Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Tablet PC Settings > General tab.
2.
Click Calibrate.
3.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
●
Tap the pen in the exact center of each of the calibration markers. The calibration markers
are displayed on the screen as plus signs (+).
●
Be sure to calibrate the touch screen for use in all 4 screen orientations.

Using the pen
You can write with the pen in pen-specific programs, such as the Tablet PC Input Panel (select models
only), in all Microsoft® Office applications, and in most other Windows programs and utilities. The
information you write on the screen with the pen can be filed, searched, and shared among most
Windows programs.
Identifying the pen components
The pen interacts with the computer whenever the tip (1) of the pen is pressed against the screen.
The pen tether eyelet (2) allows you to connect a tether from the pen to the pen tether hole on the
computer.

Cleaning the touch screen (select
models only), TouchPad, and keyboard
Clean the touch screen (select models only) regularly with non-abrasive wipes intended for this
purpose.
Clean the TouchPad with a damp cloth, and wash your hands frequently when using the computer. Dirt
and grease on the TouchPad can cause the pointer to jump around on the screen.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to internal components, do not use
a vacuum cleaner attachment to clean the keyboard. A vacuum cleaner could deposit household
debris on the keyboard surface.
Clean the keyboard regularly to prevent keys from sticking and to remove dust, lint, and particles that
can become trapped beneath the keys. A can of compressed air with a straw extension can be used to
blow air around and under the keys to loosen and remove debris.
