When you're not using the pen, just use the magnet to stick it to the left side of the screen until you need it again.
Pair your pen
First, you’ll need to pair the Surface Pen with your Surface so they can talk to each other.
On your PC, select the Start button, then select Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices.
Open Bluetooth & other devices settings.
Make sure Bluetooth is on.
Press and hold the top button of the pen for a few seconds until you see a green light on the flat side of the pen.
On the Bluetooth settings page, select Add Bluetooth or other device > Bluetooth and choose Surface Pen from the list of devices. Follow additional instructions if they appear, and then select Done.
Use Windows Ink
The Windows Ink Workspace is the place for everything you do with your pen.
Select the pen icon to open the workspace. Jot down a reminder in Sticky Notes, draw a picture in Sketchpad, or doodle on a webpage, picture, or app using Screen sketch.
If you have Microsoft Office apps installed on your Surface, make sure to try out the Surface Pen in OneNote.
Use Surface Pen with apps
Surface Pen works seamlessly with apps designed for creative tasks like Adobe Photoshop Elements, Sketchable, Drawboard PDF, and Staffpad. And if you have Microsoft Office apps installed on your Surface, make sure to try out the Surface Pen in OneNote.
Try it with Surface Dial
For the full creative experience, use Surface Pen and Surface Dial together. With Surface Pen in one hand, and Surface Dial in the other, you’ll have easy access to shortcuts, controls, drawing tools, and more while you sketch.
