    Hi there!

    Finally I got my SP3 and I love it. There are so many possiblities to use it, it's awsome!

    As the OneNote desktop version contains more options, I set it as a default to open it. When I use the desktop version, I sometimes open the calender or other pages with my palm on the tablet. That's quite annoying. Is there a possibilty to open OneNote on the whole page, so that the taskbar vanishes? or do you know an alternative?

    Cheers!

    Just look under 'View' and set it to full page view.

    The modern OneNote has full screen option also.

    The SP3, in some respects, is a step backwards for handwriting recognition and specifically palm rejection.

    The SP2 used Wacom EMR technology which employs a layer in the screen to sense the passive pen (no battery, not even lone let alone three) but also to sense your palm. It is almost impossible to fool. I tried deliberately on my SP2 to make it misbehave but I can't...:)

    The SP3 though is another story as you're finding out. It isn't a terminal failing necessarily but it can be annoying.

    A couple of options, move the taskbar to the top/side or auto hide....

    Thanks for the tip, I moved it to the side. Realised that it is much comfortable in tablet mode to have it on the left side, so you can use it while holding it.
