If your using Vista on a desktop the Tablet PC parts are not installed by default. They are on a laptop though.
To install the TIP go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On > Check Tablet PC and it will install the parts. Once you have the tablet parts installed you can find the TIP under the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Tablet PC > Tablet PC Input Panel.

If you have Vista or XP Tablet edition you can write with the Tablet Input Panel (ot TIP). IF you have Vista you need to have the "Tablet PC Optional Components" installed. These are installed by default on laptops or on desktops you can go to the Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On > Check Tablet PC and it will install the parts. Once you have the tablet parts installed you can find the TIP under the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Tablet PC > Tablet PC Input Panel.

Running the TIP will give you this window where you can write then click insert to insert the text into word.


This is how people like me that use a tablet pc write with the pen.

I have owned a TablePC before so I've used a few things regular users probably haven't seen.

The Tablet Input Panel or TIP. Vista comes with the TIP, just go to Start > Accessories > Tablet PC Input Panel.
This will give you a handwriting recognition panel plus an onscreen keyboard.

On a tablet (and a pocket pc) you right click by clicking and holding for 2 seconds. I could not get Vista to treat my mouse as a pen to enable this but maybe some wii remote drivers could be made to emulate a pen?
What I did find was some software written by Jerry Kindall to emulate the click and hold right click functionality.

Tried it out under Vista and it works great.
