I have been using windows 7 since it was released and find it excellent. It is a big improvement over windows Vista. However, I have had a really annoying niggle with it that I have only just been able to find a resolution to thanks to w_i_b on Microsoft answers…
I use Photoshop and I like to use a Wacom tablet to edit images. In windows 7 by default if you attach a tablet you start to get “feedback” every time to tap/touch the tablet. It is commonly called a splash and is really irritating when using a tablet.
However, thanks to these guys I have removed the problem. Here is the advice given;
- Open Local Group Policy Editor: Run… gpedit.msc
- Navigate to User Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Tablet PC – Cursor
- Enable the Turn off pen feedback setting.
I tried it and it worked! No more annoying splash.
Here is the link to the full conversation if you are interested… Thanks guys.
A quick update – I just found out that gpedit.msc (Group Policy Editor) is only available in windows 7 professional and above and not the home versions. Not sure how to resolve in the home versions, if I find an answer I will share it her.
