[[File:Whiteboard_full.svg|left|60px|link=]] '''Whiteboard for Windows''' is a digital whiteboard designed to run on the Windows operating system. Whiteboard features work best on large touchscreen displays, but Whiteboard will also run on non-interactive screens such as a laptop screen, with mouse clicks replacing touch for interaction. Whiteboard works together with [[MyViewBoard.com]] to allow screen sharing and livestreaming, as well as personalized files and settings which can follow the user across devices. Whiteboard for Windows uses AES-256 encryption to protect data. [[myViewBoard Security]] outlines security features of the {{mVB}} ecosystem, including Whiteboard.  <section end=intro />

After opening Whiteboard you will see the working area, and toolbar icons. Just like a regular whiteboard, you can use the [[File:I-main-toolbar-pen.svg|25px|link=]] '''''[[Pen]]''''' tool to write on the board, and the [[File:I-eraser-menu-eraser.svg|22px|link=]] '''''[[Eraser]]''''' to clear writing.
