Your Surface Pen might be compatible with Windows 10/11 PCs and other devices that support Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP)—not just Surface devices. Your pen and inking experience will vary slightly based on your PC or device manufacturer and the Surface Pen you use with it. Here’s how to check if it’s compatible.

Check your PC

Go to the website of your device manufacturer to see if it supports MPP. Take note of the number listed on your device details. 

Check your Surface Pen

After checking your device, you'll need to check which Surface Pen you have. If you're not sure, go to Identify your Surface Pen and features. In order for the pen to work with your device, the MPP should match with your Surface Pen.
