Signing documents using a touch screen

by supamundane / November 3, 2014 11:49 AM PST

What is a Windows 8 app for me to do this? I don't have an iPhone.

I need to sign a PDF and cannot use the clunky mouse-only signature option in Acrobat. Thanks so much for your help.

Would be a nice app. Ask Adobe if they made it already.

Until then, I'd print it to paper and sign it with a pen.

Adobe. But there is an app called PDF touch in the store that goes for 2.99. Basically the store is the only place you can get Metro apps. There are some desktop app that are touch but the majority are Metro apps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
