Yoga 720 handwriting recognition

I have purchased a Yoga 720 i5, and hoped that I could take notes in Windows 10, as on the surface pro I used to use in my last job.

I have looked around and can't find the handriting keyboard icon on the touchpad options, as shown on many websites. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

I really wanted to take notes in Word and Excel, and have them converted into text?

I have the Windows Ink available, but no handwriting Keyboard. I am puzzled!!

Fingers crossed, and I hope it's just something simple. 

 

Many thanks in advance.

Matt

Re: Yoga 720 handwriting recognition

Hi,

 

I followed the instructions on the link you provided.  After I right clicked on the task bar and chose "Show touch keyboard button".  I then clicked on the keyboard button in the taskbar.  I got the below.  Only difference was in the link you provided the symbol was on the right by the "X" vs on the left for me.  After clicking on the keyboard i click the pen symbol.  The one in blue below.

Re: Yoga 720 handwriting recognition

Thank you very much for your reply, as is the first time I have used a forum.

When I go through this process, I still do not have the pen icon on my touch keypad. Please see photo to help clarify.

Am I missing something, as trying to establish if I should have access to this. I hope that I can update or download it from somewhere.

Any help/guidance is much appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! 

Are you in the UK?  In Settings for Region and Language.  Does it show the pen symbol by windows display language like mine below?

If not see below article.  Seems like handwriting is availalbe for US keyboard but not UK?  See article for possible solution.  I have not tested it myself.  As in I have not added a UK keyboard to see if handwriting is missing.
