How It Works

Microsoft Tablet PCs run a superset of the Windows XP operating system called Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. This version has all the features of Windows XP Professional plus additional features unique to the Tablet PC, such as a software program called Windows Journal (Plate 30). The Windows Journal allows you to take notes in your own handwriting by using the tablet pen to write directly on the screen. It functions as an electronic writing pad and includes a number of different background templates, including ruled sheets, blank sheets, sheets with grids for drawings, and even music sheets.

To edit your handwritten notes, you can use what are known as gestures. Gestures are shapes that you draw using your tablet pen to send commands to the Tablet PC. Gestures include symbols for standard keyboard actions such as backspace, space, enter, and tab. These are unique symbols that the tablet PC can readily recognize as instructions rather than written text.
