Question by Cati: How to use regular laptop and wacom tablet to run Vista as tablet PC?
I’m very confused. I have Vista Home Premium and a shiny new Wacom tablet. I’d like to use some of the tablet PC specific Vista features using my tablet (something that apparently seems quite possible and automatic) but, er, it’s not happening. I can doodle with my pen and control the screens with it, but I’d like to be able to use some of the handwriting recognition thingys and Windows Journal and such as well. My tablet’s installed… So now what?
Oops, I figured it out myself. In case anybody else would like to know, make sure “Tablet PC Optional Components” are turned on. Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off and check said box. You may then need to restart to get everything set up — I played with settings and further confused myself BEFORE I restarted, so I’m not sure if any of those settings I played with were necessary. Good luck to anyone else!
