    Has anyone got this working? I checked a FAQ on MS website and it says you can use the pen to scroll using flicks.

    I have amended the settings and performed the flick test which confirms I am 'flicking' correctly lol.

    However when using it in chrome to scroll up or down I simply get an image of a hand saying 'drag up' or 'drag down'.

    When using in IE Metro, absolutely nothing.

    I've never been able to get it to work :p. Wish it did work though as I use the pen constantly to compensate for my sausage fingers.

    It works in Chrome and FF. It doesn't work at all in IE. It might help if you relax the pen sensitivity in Control Panel settings.

    Pen Flicks has been deprecated in Windows 8.x and is limited to Win32 programs that supported it. It will be hit or miss I'm afraid.
