    Hi there,

    could you please help me with this situation. I have a tablet on my desktop pc and it's working fine but i have all this stuff that I don' need.

    1. When I click (put pen down on surface) i see a little animated circle.
    2. When I click in a text field it automaticly displays a little keyboard icon on witch I can click to open virtual keyboard and type stuff.
    3. After first click there is slide-out keyboard always present on the left side of the screen.

    So my question is: Is there a way to disable all this "helpers" so I could have my tablet behave like a regular mouse. Where and what should I look in control panel?

    P.S. Sorry about my English.

    Goran

    Solved

    For disabling virtual keyboard features: Go to Control Panel -> Tablet PC settings -> Other -> Tablet PC input panel options -> Unchek boxes.

    For disabling pen animations: Disabling Pen animations on Windows 7 on Vimeo

    It worked for me.

    Bye
