Windows Journal

Post by Doctor Inferno on Tue May 27, 2008 7:16 am

Windows Journal is one of the applications designed for Tablet PCs. Users can handwrite notes and draw lines or shapes with it. Even though it is recommended to use a graphics tablet or a Tablet PC, you can compose handwritten notes using a normal mouse. However, this can be quite uncomfortable. In this article I will show you where to find and how to use Windows Journal.



The Windows Journal shortcut can be found in Start -> Accessories -> Tablet PC. Alternatively, you can type the word 'journal' in the Start Menu search box and click on the appropriate search result.

Windows Journal has the following tools: pen, highlighter and eraser. To use any of them, go to the Tools menu and select the one you prefer.

You can also click on the appropriate icon from the Pen toolbar.

To write something, just select the pen as well as the desired size and color and start handwriting.

Windows Journal also allows you to insert text boxes (in which you type text using the keyboard), pictures or flags of different colors.

In case you want to send your notes to other people which do not have Windows Journal, you can export them in other formats such as web archives ('.mht' files) or '.tiff' images. Just go to File -> Export As, type the file name and select the desired format.

As you can see, Windows Journal is a very simple application. Working with it is a breeze even for novices.
