  1. Where Did My Sketchpad Go?


    I ran the latest windows update on my surface and it seems that the Windows Ink Workspace is broken. I only have two options, and the sketchpad app that I use very often at work with coworkers/clients is gone. Do I need to restore and update again? Is this a known bug? Is the app available on the store?

    Thanks,

    DL

    Windows Ink Sketchpad - Not able to switch windows. Sketchpad disappears.

    Hi Chetan Agrawal,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I can understand the situation must be difficult for you, when there is a need to switch between multiple applications.
    Based on your question, we have tried simulating the issue on our system and we came across the same results. This is because, Windows ink sketchpad is not an application, but it’s a feature
    of Windows ink workspace.

    However, I have researched on the issue and found a workaround to open sketchpad directly using shortcut keys.
    Please follow the steps mentioned below to achieve the same:

    • Tap on Windows &
      W key at the same time on the keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Ink workspace window.
    • Now, click on Tab key to highlight the sketchpad feature on Windows ink workspace and hit enter. This will bring back the sketchpad window you were working on.

    Hope it helps.
