    Has anybody noticed you can not personalize your handwriting anymore.

    Control Panel\Clock, Language and Region\Language\Language options
    If you go here the last option is to personalize handwriting recognition. It used to take 50 samples of your handwriting now it doesn't take any.

    Also, my pen shortcuts don't work anymore. Anybody has any solutions?

    Its working with my English (United States) but I'm also running the latest Insider Fast Build. I just did 8 or the 50....

    But as I said in the other thread, Windows 10 uses Machine Learning by default....

    I guess they will correct the handwriting recognition in the future updates. If it's in the insider build, then probably it has a future.

    But my pen shortcuts have stopped functioning too. The answer i got from Microsoft support was to revert all upgrades. They didn't specify if others are facing this issue also. I only found one user who had the exact same problem like mine, in windows feedback. If it's a general problem then it's not a problem for me, because Microsoft will definitely get that sorted in a few months, but if this is specific to me then i will have to see what the problem is.

    I don't see this either. I'm running the Anniversary Update on a Surface 3.

    EDIT: I found it. Somehow I missed the Options button. Will have to mess around with this when I have some more time.

    My pen shortcuts are back. not reliably though. Handwriting personalization is still missing from my build. Instead of 50 i get just one slide. 0/50.

    What ever machine learning Microsoft is using - Microsoft remains a very slow learner. May be they are focusing on voice recognition for now.
