Disable Tablet features in Windows 8.1 (On screen Keyboard)
Posted on 2013-12-15
Is there a way to disable the tablet features in Windows 8 and 8.1. I'm looking specifically at the on screen keyboard. The problem is that on computers that have a Wacom tablet installed the On Screen Keyboard not only makes itself visible on the desktop toolbar, but also presents itself on the logon screen.
We had the same issue on some Window 7 machines but were able to stop this by going to Programs and Features and removing the Tablet PC feature, but there is no option to remove this that I can see in Windows 8/8.1 and its annoying the hell out of some users.
