    Howdy. I don't use One Note (I'm an Evernote guy), so I'm wondering if there's a way to disable the OneNote button on the pen? At least until it does something more useful than launch an app I don't use...

    I press it accidentally sometimes. It'd be nice to turn it off... Can this be done?

    Best,

    Ben

    You can unpair it. I guess.

    Unscrew the top portion of the pen, look in the center of the spring, you will see a screw. Unscrew that screw and remove the small batteries that powers the bluetooth

    If you don't need Bluetooth for anything you could disable Bluetooth and save battery at the same time.

    Ooh. That sounds like a good idea! Better than a hardware solution.

    I use a headset now and then, but I can switch it back on when I need it.

    You can also reprogram it to do something else with AutoHotkey scripts.
