Resources for screen annotation.

- Screen Sketch and Sketchpad: Tap on the Windows Ink Workspace icon next the the time and date in your bottom toolbar (it looks like a pen and a scribble). Screen Sketch allows you to annotate on top of the current screen you have pulled up. Sketchpad allows you to annotate on a blank space. You can then save this file or discard it right after.
