That's odd. It worked fine for me. Maybe try uninstalling the Surface App and reinstalling it...? Which OneNote 2016 file did you select to have open when you click the top button of the pen?Ok... I installed the Surface app update, found that OneNote 2016 won't open, and now my windows button (keyboard or screen) won't open. Reboot, etc. were no help. Any ideas?
Yikes, that's beyond my scope of knowledge. Have you tried holding the volume up rocker for 30 seconds while holding the power button?Search doesn't work, either, but I think it was "OSPPREARM.EXE", the only one that came up for me.
Any idea how to uninstall the Surface app when I can't open the Tiles or do a search? I can't find the utility in file mgr.
I'm glad to hear that your Surface is working again!Thanks. That's essentially what I did, and it freed up the frozen buttons.
Upon opening the Surface - Pen - settings, my selected button function was gone, and I had to reestablish a connection with my OneNote acct, but now all is well.
I think I'll wait til I hear that connecting to OneNote 2016 is a working option.
Ah ha. That's what's up with mine. Thenone works fine except the Bluetooth bits but I never really used them so hadn't thought much of it.I found a post that gave instructions to get the sp4 pen to work on the sp3, and can confirm it works.
First, you have un-pair your pen in the Bluetooth settings.
Then you have to uninstall the pen drivers (Device Manager: Right click: Uninstall and remove files the following entries: "HID-compliant pen" & "Surface Pen Settings").
Then you have to download the Surface Pro 4 drivers (Download Surface Pro 4 Drivers and Firmware from Official Microsoft Download Center) SurfacePro4_Win10_151203_0.zip.
Extract the ZIP file, navigate down to \Drivers\Pen and install the following:
By going into each directory and right clicking the .INF file and select "Install"
Restart your SP3 Then re-pair your pen in Settings, Devices, Bluetooth.
Then you can open the Surface App and you will see the additional pen settings.
Microsoft now lets you customize the buttons on Surface Pen with any apps you want
