Microsoft Releases Tablet PC Experience Pack
Microsoft Experience Pack for Tablet PC is full of fun applications that take full advantage of the Tablet PC pen—and empowers you with creative, mobile, and productive tools. You can write, draw, and express yourself in your own personal way. After you download the Experience Pack, the installer allows you to install one, some, or all of these products.

Keep Priorities Top of Mind

With Ink Desktop, you can write down notes directly on your desktop for quick and easy access, like a phone number, address, or top priorities for the day. It's like one big sticky note that won't get lost. Or if you're feeling less productive, it's also a great place to doodle.

Share the Highlights

Snipping Tool allows you to select and capture a portion of your screen—part of a Web site, document, or application. Then add handwritten comments, and save or send it in an e-mail message. Capture it as a circle, square, or freehand image. It even attaches the URL automatically if your capture is from a Web site.

Paint Outside the Lines

Ink Art simulates an artist's toolset. Choose from different textured canvases, paint brushes, chalks, crayons, and more. Draw or paint freehand or use a digital picture as tracing paper to create a professional-looking painting. Ink Art takes advantage of the Tablet PC pen's pressure sensitivity, so shading looks natural.

Six Letter Word for Fun

Ink Crossword is a must for puzzle fans and those who simply enjoy taking a break from their normal routine to solve a minor challenge. Solve any of the 12 puzzles that come with Ink Crossword, or download a new puzzle every day for free.

Take Your Photos, Music, and Videos To Go

Easily copy media files from your home computer (running Windows XP Home, Professional, or Media Center Edition) to your Tablet PC with Media Transfer. Queue up your favorite music, movies, and digital photo albums and copy them over a wired or wireless network. Then off you go, fully stocked with entertainment. Get started.

Be Your Own Jukebox Hero

The Energy Blue Theme Pack includes a Windows Media Player skin that's customized for the Tablet PC, with knobs and buttons that are easy to control with a pen. It also includes new wallpaper, and energizes the colors used on your Start menu, application windows, and toolbars.
