Windows Ink Adds An Extra Dimension To Your Business Computing

Windows Ink Adds An Extra Dimension To Your Business Computing

Your technology is a gateway to productivity, and Microsoft has managed to put together a great way to use it with their latest operating system. In Windows 10, you can use Windows Ink to doodle or take notes on your screen while using a Microsoft application like Word, PowerPoint, or OneNote.

You’ve probably seen the tablets that many artists use to create their thoughts and transfer them to their device. This is where Windows Ink gets its major idea from. However, the key difference between these art tablets and Windows Ink is that you don’t need a piece of external hardware or a USB connection. In fact, Windows Ink lets you use the touch screen on your device, along with specialized writing utensils, making it much less of a hassle to use.

Since Windows Ink is a Microsoft product, it’s natural that it will work best when used alongside other Microsoft products. Some of its best features only truly shine when used in a Microsoft Office product, like Word or OneNote. Here are some of the best ways you can use Windows Ink to be more productive with Microsoft Office.

Microsoft Word
You can use Windows Ink to mark up any documents that you’ve opened in Microsoft Word. You’ll be able to turn your stylus into a highlighter, delete unwanted words, or create sections of strikethrough. It’s just one way that your organization can use the latest technology to get even more out of Microsoft Word.

Microsoft OneNote
OneNote can become a freehand calculator by using Windows Ink. All you have to do is write the equation in the space where you are working. The answer will instantly propagate. If you would rather turn off this feature and focus on keeping your math skills sharp, OneNote can take you through it step by step.

Microsoft PowerPoint
Windows Ink comes with a built-in ruler that you can use to get more dynamic functions out of PowerPoint. A built-in Windows Ink feature allows you to be even more precise in your slideshows. Windows Ink can even replay the notes that others have made in its own PowerPoint file.

Windows Ink can do a lot more, such as allowing you to write down a quick address on a sticky note or generate a map based on a destination's’ address. You can also use it to take screenshots on your device’s screen and take notes on them.

Ultimately, Windows Ink is a really interesting option for any productivity-minded organization. You can use it to edit documents, simplify emails, and even provide an outlet for multiple employees to collaborate on a single document. You can think of it like an interactive notebook.
