    Disable Tablet PC

    I have just obtained a new computer with Vista Ultimate. It came with the
    Tablet PC. I use a Wacom tablet.

    At this time I do not use handwriting and therefore find the small icon that
    appears all the time quite annoying. So I wnat to know how I can disable this
    until I want to use it.
    Thanks

    Re: Disable Tablet PC

    Thank you Mark. In Device Manager I can only find reference to my Wacom
    tablet. What I want to disable is the Tablet PC. Where in Device driver can I
    find it?
    Thanks.

    Re: Disable Tablet PC

    Thank you "Sinclair". I went to the Control panel-rt. clicked on the Pen and
    Input Devices icon - chose the Flicks Tab and unchecked the "Display flicks
    ...." box. Then I Restarted the computer and the little box (with the pen in
    it) keeps poping up. Did I do the wrong thing? If not, have you anything else
    to suggest?

    Re: Disable Tablet PC

    No. You did the right thing. You now by saying …the little box….makes me
    think we’re not talking about the same icon. The flicks icon I meant is a
    little hand holding a pen.

    I dunno what else to suggest.
