Configuring the Wacom Tablet

In some cases the Wacom Tablet may configure itself to use both monitors that are installed in our classrooms. This can create a counterintuitive user experience when trying to use Zoom’s whiteboard feature, or the Microsoft Whiteboard app, during a Zoom screen share.

 

To remedy this, you can configure the Wacom Tablet to your preference by opening the Wacom Tablet Properties app;

  1. Click the Start button (or press the Windows key on the keyboard)
  2. Type “Wacom”
  3. Click on “Wacom Tablet Properties”
  4. Click on the “Mapping” tab
  5. Next to “Screen Area” click the drop down menu and Select “Monitor 1”
  6. Close the app to save your changes

 

If you logged into the PC using your LawKey then these settings will save and you won’t need to do this again.

Below you can find screenshots on this process to assist in making this change;

The tablet’s size will now mirror the size of the monitor

For example, hovering the pen over the tablet in the center of the tablet will move the cursor to the center of the monitor, hovering the pen in the right corner of the tablet will move the cursor to the right corner of the monitor, etc.

The graphic to the left will depict a visual representation of how the tablet is configured

6. Click the red X in the upper right corner to close the app
