Surface Pen to advance powerpoint


Has anyone else got the new feature to allow the surface pen button to advance PowerPoint slides.


  1. I've got the right version of PowerPoint (it even prompted a bubble to tell me it could do it).
  2. Surface Pro 4, Pen is paired and connected.
  3. In the Pen settings, apps are allowed to override the default action

Whenever I press the button while presenting in PowerPoint, OneNote loads.

Are you in Presentation Mode when you click the pen eraser button? Worked fine for me just now.

I got the prompt, made sure the settings are correct, and nothing. I have a surface pen 3 not used in a long time... Does a surface Pen 2 do this?
