Manually pair Surface Pen with two side buttons
If your Surface Pen won’t write or connect to Bluetooth®, you may need to manually pair your pen with your Surface. Here’s how.
|Step 1:||Go to Start and select Settings > Devices > Bluetooth.|
|Step 2:||Hold down the top button for about 7 seconds, until the light in the middle of the pen clip starts to flash.
|Step 3:||From the Manage Bluetooth devices list on your Surface, select Surface Pen, and then select Pair.|
If the pen doesn’t pair, try these steps one more time. If it still doesn’t pair, contact us.
