Introduction

Dell Canvas Palettes provides a set of ready-made and custom floating palettes that allow you to access a variety of keyboard shortcuts and utilities using the touch interface on your Dell Canvas screen instead of using your keyboard.

Default palettes In addition to allowing you to create custom palettes through the Palette Manager, Dell Canvas Palettes provides six default palettes for you to use.

Master Palette Use the Master Palette to create custom palettes and to manage all your palettes. From the Master Palette, you can also launch a search on Windows 10, operate your projection functions, lock and unlock your workstation, open task views, and enable, show, and hide other palettes.

NOTE: Clicking the X on the Master Palette hides the palette rather than closing the Dell Canvas Palettes application. To launch

the Master Palette again, left-click the icon in the system tray.
