Annoying "thing" blocks my view

Windows 10 just went through yet another update.
Now my view is blocked whenever I want to write anything. Windows assumes I can't hit the keys and offers me handwriting instead.
Where can I say NO once and for all?
And what is he "thing" called in Windows lingo?
Thankyou!

Sounds like Windows thinks you have a tablet.

Is the affected system a desktop, a laptop, or a tablet?

It is a HP Workstation. I use a Wacom Pen Tablet for input (and a keyboard).

Aha.  Windows 10 thinks your tablet input device is equivalent to the computer being a tablet computer.  I've found the exact same problem online and that author reports a solution.

Problem:  http://superuser.com/questions/951229/how-to-disable-windows-10-handwritting-dialog

To turn it off:

    Open the start menu and search for "Services" and click on the result
    Find "Touch keyboard and handwriting panel service"
    Right click and select "Stop"
    Right click on "Properties"
    Under "Startup type:" select "disabled"
    Click OK to save.
