Added in Windows 10. version 1709. This policy allows an enterprise to configure the default mode for the handwriting panel.

The handwriting panel has 2 modes - floats near the text box, or docked to the bottom of the screen. The default configuration to is floating near text box. If you want the panel to be fixed or docked, use this policy to fix it to the bottom of the screen.

In floating mode, the content is hidden behind a flying-in panel and results in end-user dissatisfaction. The end-user will need to drag the flying-in panel to see the rest of the content. In the fixed mode, the flying-in panel is fixed to the bottom of the screen and does not require any user interaction.

The docked mode is especially useful in Kiosk mode where you do not expect the end-user to drag the flying-in panel out of the way.
