Use of a Stylus on Windows 10 Machines (Outside of the Surface Pro tablet)

Can you please add drivers so that Windows 10 users on different machines other than the surface pro can use a stylus in Photoshop? I'm actually a little taken back you haven't yet. That cuts out a significant portion of your marketable clientele. I actually stopped using Photoshop for a large period of time because I wasn't able to have this ability with machines outside of mac / apple OS.

Photoshop cannot add drivers - the tablet/stylus maker has to write the drivers to match the OS standards.

Are you referring to tablets/laptops with built-in stylus support (many of which have horrid drivers)? Or to non-Wacom tablets (separate from the display)?

I'm specifically referring to laptops with built-in stylus support, but also non-Wacom tablets in general.

Yeah, that is entirely up to the tablet/stylus maker to implement their drivers properly. On some of those (without pressure support), they implement everything as a multitouch event - which looks to the application like gestures instead of stylus/mouse input.
