Using Handwriting Recognition

On tablets and laptops with touchscreens, the touch keyboard can also be used for text input using handwriting recognition. And if you have a touchpad with a stylus, you can also use this feature. Here’s how to switch to and use handwriting recognition from the touch keyboard, using WordPad (found in the Windows Accessory folder in All Apps) as the app in this example.
