The Dell Stylus

 

A stylus is a writing implement that works by either touch or pressure, rather than with ink. A stylus for a tablet usually looks a bit like a pen and can be used to select options, write, or draw on a touchscreen.

This guide to the optional Dell Stylus that is available for use with Dell Latitude Tablets, will cover a visual guide, getting the stylus ready for use and using the stylus with a tablet.

Using the optional Stylus with a Tablet

 

The Stylus is ergonomically designed to work with your tablet for long periods of time. The user can switch between pen and finger entry without any manual mode switching. The stylus supports features such as palm rejection, hovering, and pressure sensing, which allow for  accuracy and ease of use - with no calibration needed.

The two buttons are software-configurable for using features such as erasing, highlighting, or performing mouse clicks. You can use the tip of the stylus to draw shapes, select text, turn a page, and write, or sign the documents on your tablet.

You can use the native Pen and Touch application in the Windows Control Panel:

Control Panel > Devices > Pen

Or you can use the N-Trig DuoSense application depending on your system type:
