Pen and Windows Ink Setting Missing Surface Book

Surface Book

I do not have the Pen and Windows Ink in the Devices setting any longer. How can I get this back? Also, my computer information reflects there is no Pen or Touch is available for this display. It is a Surface Book. My pen pairs and connects, and I have access to the Ink Workspace, but I do not have the ability to tweak the settings in Devices. Help?

Attached couple screen snags.

Thanks!

Answer
try a two button reset:
 
 
Step 1: Swipe in from the right and tap or click Settings, tap or click Power,
and then tap or click Shut down to shut down Surface. If you can’t shut down
Surface normally, press and hold the power button on your Surface for 30
seconds.
 
Step 2: After Surface turns off, press and hold volume-up button and the power
button on your Surface at the same time for at least 15 seconds, and then
release both.        
 
        The screen may flash the Surface logo, but continue holding the buttons
down for at least 15 seconds.
 
Step 3: After you release the buttons, wait 10 seconds.
 
Step 4: Press and release the power button again to turn your Surface back on.
