How To Get The Most Out Of Your Tablet PC

Additional Tips And Tricks

First of all, depending on your model, you may be able to use the back of your stylus as an eraser. On certain versions of XP or Vista, you may need to turn the option on first by going to Control Panel > Hardware > Tablet and Pen Settings, but in most operating systems, this is turned on by default. It’s not mentioned in my owner’s manual, so I never even thought of using the back as an eraser, but it comes in really handy in the rare case that I should make a mistake.


If you’ve ever thought about a Tablet PC but never really bothered to look into one, you should realize that it is not just about a fancy swivel screen that looks like an obese PDA. There are a myriad of enhancements that Tablet PCs implement, and some of them have nothing to do with the touch-screen. Soccer moms, digital media hounds, students, blue collar employees, and white collar employees alike can all take advantage of the increased functionality that a tablet offers. It’s the true all-in-one notebook, and if you log any significant amount of time with a mobile computer, the Tablet PC market is definitely worth checking out.
