The ‘lead’ in pencils is made of conductive graphite and can conduct the small amounts of electricity required to activate the capacitive sensors in the touch screen. So, you can activate the touch screen by keeping your fingers in the groove you made.

Here are some further points to consider:

. Make sure that the pencil is free from oil. Just scribble on a piece of paper to get rid of the glue on the lead.

. Make sure your pencil is made of graphite and not other material.

. Make the groove closer to the tip.
