Moving the pen moves the cursor.
The table below describes how to use the pen.
Appearance
Gently tap the pen tip on the screen of your Tablet PC.
Gently tap the pen tip twice in quick succession on the screen of your Tablet-PC.
Touch the pen on the screen and hold it in place momentarily until Windows
draws a complete circle around the cursor.
