Hand writing notes on a Samsung laptop

Save paper by taking notes on your Windows 10 PC. With Air Command and Microsoft Ink, writing on your PC is easier than ever. There's also a lot of helpful features for notes and screenshots. Hooray for the trees!

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Air Command on Windows 10

Note: The Air Command app may only be compatible with the Samsung S Pen.

Why carry around a notebook when you can write directly on your Windows 10 PC?

To do this, first download and install Air command from the Microsoft Store. Once it's ready, open the app and use the different features with your S Pen.

You'll be able to use the following features:

Windows Ink is the name of Microsoft's pen support. It gives you all kinds of cool and useful features to use with your pen and lets you write right on the screen.

If you don't have a stylus or a pen, you write on the screen with you fingers! But please be aware that Microsoft Ink is only available on select PCs. To access Microsoft Ink, click the pen icon in the your taskbar.
