How to set up
In summary, you will need to (a) connect the device to your computer, (b) turn it on and then (c) install the latest Wacom drivers. If you do not have enough open ports on your computer, you can use the Hyper Drive hub that we have included in the loaner kit.
Also note that you can adjust pen accuracy, sensitivity and other settings in the "Wacom Desktop Center" application. This utility is installed along with the drivers and will automatically launch when you connect and turn on the Wacom One device.
How to use the pen:
- Move mouse pointer, hover - While holding the Wacom pen, gently rest your palm on the screen and slide it around, but do not touch the screen with the pen.
- Click - Tap on the screen with the tip of the pen.
- Double-click - Tap twice on the screen with the tip of the pen.
- Right-click - Press the button on the side of the pen while hovering over the screen.
How to annotate and draw:
To take advantage of the Wacom One's annotation capabilities, you must pair the device with software applications that provide drawing and annotation tools. We have provided a few recommendations below.
- Zoom Whiteboard - Select the Whiteboard option when stating a new Screen Share.

- Ink2Go - Easy-to-use tool that allow you to annotate over any application, including the ability to save and recall annotations and drawings. $20 for a license, and available on select Tech Commons workstations.
- Jamboard* - Free-to-use online whiteboard app from Google.

These additional tips will help you use the Wacom One effectively and avoid common pitfalls:
- To avoid scratching the screen, do not to wear jewelry or clothing with sharp edges when using the device.
- Using a pen tablet requires a bit of practice. You may find it may be easier to use a mouse or trackpad when performing basic functions like navigating menus. For this reason, keep your mouse or trackpad connected and nearby so you can switch back-and-forth as needed!
- If you are using an annotation application that supports pressure sensitivity, you can press harder on the pen to draw thicker lines, and softer to draw thinner lines.
