Question holding a 2 in 1 screen at certain angle

New member here. I have a Dell 2 in 1 laptop.

I need to be able to hold the screen at a fixed angle so that I can draw on the screen and type on the keyboard
1) while the laptop is completely folded over, with the keyboard face down on the table;
or
2) while the laptop is open in normal position.

I don't want to hold the entire laptop at an angle on a stand, just the screen.

Basically I can accomplish what I want by rolling up a small towel and stuffing it behind the laptop screen, but surely there's a more elegant solution.

Any solutions exist?

Thanks,
CODan

Dell Latitude 9410 - there is no stand behind it - this isn't a Surface tablet. Only friction and the weight of the base holds it open.

\\ <- represents the screen
===== <- represents the base


When it's on a table, in the normal position, I can't really effectively draw on the screen because drawing on it pushes the screen down, overcoming the friction.

normal position

\\ <- want to hold this screen angle while drawing on the screen

When it's on a table, in tablet mode (keyboard on the underside) I can draw because the screen is flat. But I'd prefer the screen be angled, which would make better viewing.

A lot of dell tablet systems have a rear stand but those are the ones with detachable screens. All the ones we have at work, 7200, 5290 models, have a stand.

Not much you can do for this aside from building your own bracing like a kickstand with rubber feet for traction, something like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08ZJQ6MJ6/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B08ZJQ6MJ6&pd_rd_w=ZMEUp&pf_rd_p=085568d9-3b13-4ac1-8ae4-24a26c00cb0c&pd_rd_wg=JNqLo&pf_rd_r=21856BYP16K6DS97KYW6&pd_rd_r=439c44fa-a682-4a49-8832-2d9440af3dfe&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE2MUU3WUdGTVpGSzAmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAzMDgxMTIzRkI5UjQ4N0xaMk5QJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAxMTE5MzYyVEFDWUNYRzRIMzZPJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
