    Here's my advice

    Quick Access Feature:
    0- Before #1, there is the undo button. I forgot to mention it. Really useful
    1-Stroke Eraser
    2- Black pen, 3rd thickest
    3- Red pen, 3rd thickest
    4- Pointer/Stop Inking/Start typing
    5- Highlighter
    6- Lasso
    7- Pen options
    8- View % options

    Write at >100% view
    View entire note at <45% view

    It's an amazon basic stylus, nothing big. Haven't try the adonit one yet

    If you ever tried the Adonit Jot you probably wouldn't be able to use anything else.

    Might I suggest you change your title and put How to in brackets. Looks to much like a question.

    haha thx. I couldn't reedit the post. Yeh the adonit stylus looks really appealing. However, I am afraid of scratching the screen :'(

    Funny story. At the local AT&T store they are on fruity tablets for all their work, including customers signing stuff. Last time I was there he gave be a typical stylus to fill out some stuff and after the first couple strokes I told him he would need to wait a minute while I got a real stylus. He and several other sales people in the store were prepared to spend their own money to get one.

    I have several customers using the Adonit Jot Pro and not one scratch. (Disclaimer: most are using it on Gorilla Glass but I'm not certain it makes that much difference)

    Microsoft say they are currently developing a capacitive pen with pressure sensitivity using laser technology. Lets see how that fares

    Thanks guys. I appreciate all of the help. I ordered a Jot Pro last night and am anxious to begin using it.

    Archa, thanks for posting your video with taking notes. That was extremely helpful!

    Thanks for the video! I've been looking around for ways to get more out of OneNote and this has been very helpful.

    Hi...thanks for the video! Quick question about that Adonit pen...I have also read elsewhere that it does scratch the glass, is this really a problem or is it a myth of sorts?

    Cheers!

    The Adonit itself doesn't scratch the screen, but because of the hard plastic disk it does a really good job of grinding any grit or dust that is on your screen and that does scratch the screen. So I always clean the screen before inking...
