    I have a mid 2016 spectre x360 which has some sort of Synaptics active stylus support (altough I can't find any references to it in the device manager or anywhere). I've bought a Dell Active Stylus, since the HP one was out of stock and they're compatible (same sort of Synaptics device).

    I can't find a way to adjust the pen's sensitivity. There seems to be no HP Active Pen software, and Dell's won't install on my PC because of it being from a different vendor. Right now I have to make a lot of pressure for the pen to register, to the point that it's almost useless. There must be a registry setting somewhere... Or some hidden old scholl control panel UI for it. Does anyone know how to do it?

    Try the following:
    • WinKey + R
    • type control, which opens the old Control Panel
    • click on Pen and Touch, which open the Pen and Touch config
    • adjust the settings for your use
    That should work with no problems, it does in all of my 3 Windows 10 Tablets.
