Write as fast as you think.
When we created Surface Pen, we combined the act of writing on paper with the best of working digitally. It's personal, natural, and feels just like writing in your favorite journal or drawing in your sketchbook.
Click to OneNote
One click of Surface Pen opens a blank OneNote page - even if your Surface is locked or asleep. Notes are saved automatically. Perfect for those flashes of inspiration.
Digital ink flows directly from the tip of Surface Pen. It's just as smooth, fluid, and precise as your favorite ballpoint pen on paper.
With 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, Surface Pen responds just like a real pen to create thicker, darker lines when you push harder.
