    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    Wow, Jax Cavalera, you have clearly looked into this. I'd say you've offered a lot more that 2 cents. ;) I find myself in sort of a holding pattern as far as buying any new PCs at the moment. There are so many possibilities to consider that I feel I should wait for the dust to settle a bit...

    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    I have received my Adonit Jot Pro stylus and have been using it with my Windows 8 Acer t232hl touch screen monitor. It works reasonably well for some things and not so well for other things. I can navigate both the start screen and the desktop with the Jot in the same way I would use my finger...

    Will 'normal' Windows users want a Start button for Windows 8?

    Yes, look in the tutorial section of this forum. There some very fine tutorials some having to do with the keyboard shortcuts for navigating Windows 8.

    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    I have written an email to Adonit and asked about using the Jot Pro stylus with a full size touch screen monitor. Their response was that it should work with any capacitive touch screen. So, I have decided to be the guinea pig on this and have ordered one from Amazon. I'll let you know how it...

    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    I see Amazon offered these for sale. They look pretty interesting. Have you tried the Adonit Jot stylus with a full size touch screen monitor and Windows 8, as opposed to a tablet or smartphone?

    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    Thanks everyone for all the comments and suggestions. I have tried an inexpensive rubber tipped stylus I had around the house and it did not work very well for drawing or painting. Though it worked fine for navigation. I have also tried just painting and drawing on the touch screen monitor with...

    Start Menu Toolbar - Create on Windows 8 Taskbar

    That was a great tutorial! I did something similar but I decided to roll my own menu since I have never found the whole start menu to be very useful. But I still don't like a lot of icon clutter on my desktop. First I created a folder called "More Programs". And attached it to the taskbar as...

    Stylus for desktop touch screen monitor?

    I have an Acer T232HL touch screen monitor and I would like to get as stylus to use with it. I would love to paint and draw with a stylus in Photoshop and ArtRage. Does such a thing exist yet? Are there different types?

    Will 'normal' Windows users want a Start button for Windows 8?

    I think if we could go back in time a few years and sit the dad (and the people on the street) down in front of Windows 95 or 98 after he (they) had been using 3.1 the reaction would be very much the same. When something is new there are things to learn. I personally love the experience of...

    Switcher - Open in Windows 8

    I am starting my swipe from just outside the bezel. But I have just discovered something very interesting. :-) I swiped from the left as I have been doing, starting from just outside the bezel, a recently opened app starts to appear. Then I swiped back toward the left edge of the screen very...

    Switcher - Open in Windows 8

    Thanks for responding. This is not the behavior I am seeing. When I swipe in from the left side of the screen one of the most recently used apps opens. If I swipe quickly it open full screen. If I swipe slowly and pause it open in part of the screen with the other part still showing the previous...

    Switcher - Open in Windows 8

    I have just upgraded my Laptop to Windows 8 Pro this week and I want to make sure I am fully understanding your fine tutorial. It seems that in reading your tutorial and my own experience that there is no purely touch method of activating the Apps Switcher. I have been generally using my...
