Question about Toshiba Portege 3505 Tablet PC
I have a toshiba 3505 windows xp tablet pc. I brought it off a friend and don't have the user guide. I don't know how to use or configure the settings for it. Either looking to find a site where I can view the user guide free online or somone to tell me how to use the pen.
Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)
On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.
Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.
Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.
To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.
This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.
