Practice using flicks

If you have a Tablet PC or touchscreen, you can easily perform navigational and editing shortcuts—such as copy, paste, undo, and delete—with a simple flick of your tablet pen or finger. To practice using flicks, complete the Flicks Training.

  • Open Flicks Training by tapping the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then tapping Control Panel. In the search box, type pen and touch, and then tap Pen and Touch. (You won't see Pen and Touch if you aren't using a Tablep PC or a computer with a touchscreen.) Tap the Flicks tab, and then tap Practice using flicks.


  • Don't perform a flick over an ink-enabled surface, such as Tablet PC Input Panel or Windows Journal, because the action will be interpreted as an ink stroke rather than a flick.
