I am using a multi-touch HP PC, and I want to disable the little "blip" cursor animations that happens when you touch the screen.

Does anyone know how to disable this cursor animation and/or the little dot that shows up?

  1. Open Local Group Policy Editor: Run... gpedit.msc
  2. Navigate to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows Components - Tablet PC - Cursor
  3. Enable the Turn off pen feedback setting.

This disables the animation. The dedicated touch cursor (tilted square with short extensions in all four directions) remains visible. As far as I know there is no setting to turn off the distinct touch cursor. – IInspectable Apr 17 '14 at 12:23

On Windows 10 i selected show Pointer Trails and it got rid of pointers for most internet sites. The mini pointer remained in the Windows10 start screen when i used touch there and also in apps. So then i selected show visual feedback and that wiped out all the stupid pointers, but then i had to deal with silly visual feedback. Should have option for no pointers when using Touchscreen.
