How to customize your Surface Pen

by Volker Weber

Sketch

Matthias asked me this morning how he can select which of his two OneNote programs he could launch when pressing the button on his Surface Pen. I told him to use the Surface app, which eventually lead him to the correct panel. This setting has moved from the Surface app into Windows 10 Settings/Devices/Pen & Windows Ink.

Hi Volker, me again ... I knew all of that and used it so far with great pleasure but now all of a sudden the Pen Shortcuts don't work anymore on my Surface 3, neither the Click Once (should open OneNote just like in your set-up) nor the Double-Click (customized to Screenshot to OneNote as well). Any idea what could be wrong?

You need to replace a battery. If it still writes but the buttons don't work it is the two 319 batteries. If it doesn't write it is the AAAA battery.
