    Neat sometimes dies if you do too many screen rotations quickly. I've managed to get it working again by going into its install directory and running QuitFramework followed by NtrigMultiTouchFramework.

    There are also a bunch of Tutorial Videos in the install directory.

    I don't have much use for the volume keys. So I found this program Downloads - keymapper - Project Hosting on Google Code that lets you remap them to something eke. I set them to page up and down. Note that Windows 7 dropped support for per-user settings, so you have to make a boot keymap.

    I have found that auto hiding the taskbar works pretty well. The secret to exposing it is to place your finger on the adjacent bezel and drag into the screen. This essentially causes a clock on the border pixel you must hover over normally to expose it when using a mouse. Given the small screen size, every little pixel you can free for your programs counts.

    I'd like to map the home key to Mobile Control Panel myself. :)

    I gotta rave a little about IE 9 beta: it seems to be the first Windows browser built for touch from ground up. Scrolling and zooming works pretty much like in Android or iOS browsers, with even inertial scrolling with flicks, which is quite an achievement for a full browser. It also maximizes the page view on this little screen even better than Chrome. There are some glitches, e.g. the search field on this page was first invisible but it got fixed by clicking the compatibility view button. Try it!

    I just accidentally discovered this on my TC1100; pressing the pen button and stroking a link in IE will open the link in a new tab.

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed this one.

    Tap on an object with one finger and without lifting up the finger, tap a second finger anywhere and it'll right click on the object. Go tap tap finger one finger two and it'll happen.

    I find this very useful. :)

    Doesn't work in some windows (e.g., Logos 4).

    A similar one I've noticed is if you do a tap and drag like on a touch pad, that is tap, lift finger and quickly tap again, but leave finger on the screen and drag, you now hover rather than do a group select. Again this doesn't work in some windows, such as Logos 4.
