Mathematical formulas often contain a specific structure, with sub-stripes and other special symbols. In Windows 10 you can easily draw it!

In high school, further study or work they come regularly: mathematical formulas. And to build it up again in a Word document or something like that is often quite a hassle. But it can be a lot easier! In the Start menu under Accessories, click once **Math Input Panel**. Indeed: this is also an English-language part in a Dutch version of Windows 10. But don’t be put off by that, the effect is soon clear. Actually, the tool – we guess – is intended for touch screens. If you have such a screen, it will come in handy (finally?). But fear not: you can also go a long way with the mouse. Or of course a drawing tablet. Anyway, the idea is that in the yellow area you simply write your formula by hand, just as you would on paper.

## Insert

Once your formula is ready, you start something like Word. Then click in Math Input Panel **Insert**. And there is your formula! If you make a mistake while writing your formula, you will see a panel on the right side of the drawing field with various correction buttons. Interesting **Select and Correct**. Draw a selection around the part you want to correct. Then a list of possible alternatives appears, choose something to your liking and the correction will be implemented. Ideal for if your handwriting is just a little less legible, or if your mouse creation may not be quite your liking. In any case, a nice tool that can come in handy every now and then! Especially if you have to produce a report of, for example, a practical physics test or something similar.
