Microsoft Whiteboard is an application for collaborative work that simulates a whiteboard and computer brainstorming. The app includes a drawing tool, notepads and image support to sketch ideas in the virtual environment and share the progress with others via the Internet. The program was exclusive to Surface Hub, a Microsoft business touch screen, but was recently released to all Windows 10 users. See how to use the main features of the Whiteboard.

Step 3. Use the pen to write and draw on the screen. The function is mainly useful in computers with touch screen and electronic pen. But, in the absence of the accessory, it is possible to use the mouse and the virtual ruler to create shapes.
