Pointing device (tablet) - Built in utilities

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

Go to Control Panel -> Tablet PC settings. You should be able to disable the helpers there.

Tnx for the help! I managed to get rid off some of the stuff...

Like you said: Go to Control Panel -> Tablet PC settings -> Other -> Tablet PC input panel options -> Unchek boxes.

Removed that keybord icon by the input fields and a keyboard sidebar.

Do you know anything about that (right-left) click indicators (animated circles), how could I disable them? It's very annoying when working in graphic applications.

Again, tnx for the help.
