I use my tablet for artwork, not handwriting, with my computer and so I'm really really annoyed by this ridiculously stupid water droplet animation that occurs when the tablet and pen make contact. I noticed it while I was trying to cross hatch and the repeated animations layering on top of each other basically made me draw a jagged continuous line. Super lame.
I did some research online and it's pen feedback that came with a program called Windows Ink that was installed onto my computer when I installed the driver
for my tablet. I already went in and turned off the tablet PC features in the control panel and it still won't go away. Online many websites said to use the group policy editor but I can't use that since the copy of Windows on my laptop is Home Premium and they don't give that option to me. Anyway, I found the file that's responsible for the animation in the system32 folder. It's called wisptis.exe.
I tried opening task manager and killing the process but it always restarts itself after I end it ):
Any suggestions on how to safely disable it? I wanna maybe rename the file wisptis.exe_ so the computer can't find and use it but they won't let me edit/move/delete anything in system32. I'm also open to just deleting it outright, but I dunno. If you can figure out how I can use Group policy editor or something like it to just turn it off, I would love that even more.
Thanks for reading!
