How do I disable Windows Ink?

I just reinstalled my tablet drivers (due to an issue with my art program that forces me to reinstall every time I restart), and now Windows 10 does this new thing where it adds a dot cursor and other features I didn't need for my tablet and pen.

As well as those features I don't need, it's also gone and changed what my tablet buttons do in my art program and makes dragging actions (like when I draw a line) lag to **** and back. It severely slows down work speed and I have no idea how to fix it.

Is it even Windows Ink that's causing these issues, or something else? How do I fix it?

Seems like your Windows Ink is the issue, you can try these 2 methods

by Mobiviki In reply to How do I disable Windows ...

You can try these two methods which are effective on desktop mode so they will definitely work on tablet mode too:

1# Open group policy editor, navigate to:

Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Windows Components –> Windows Ink Workspace, double-click on Allow Windows Ink Workspace in the right part of the screen, disable it.

2# Open registry editor, navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft, Right click on Microsoft folder and select New – Key, set the name WindowsInkWorkspace and hit Enter, right click on the newly created key and choose New – DWORD (32-bit) Value with the same name. Set the value 0.

Restart your tablet to verify the result.
