I have a Wacom Bamboo pen tablet.
When I press CTRL, SHIFT, or ALT, a little yellow bubble pops up near my cursor.
This interfers with screenshots etc.
Wacom has informed me that this is not a feature of the pen software but of Windows 7.
Does anyone know how I can turn this off?
I'm adding these notes here as a quick run down for when I have to configure my Wacom Bamboo pen on a new operating system:
to remove the click animations and little bubbles described above, do as Simon described below: type "gpedit.msc" in the command line window, navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Tablet PC > Cursor, then click "Turn off pen feedback" and ENABLE it.
to remove the "press and hold circle animation", open "Table PC Settings", click on "Go to Pen and Touch", click on "Press and Hold" and then on the "Settings" button, uncheck "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" NOTE: Revisiting this in 2020, what worked is what Crobemeister and molee suggest below: Windows Icon > Wacom Preferences > Tablet Mode > Correspondance... (French), then unclick "Use Windows Ink" (French: "Utiliser entrée manuscrite Windows")
to change buttons, open "Pen Tablet Properties", change front button to "double click", close window (there is no OK button here)
to prevent that yellow handwriting window from appearing on the screen, I forgot how I turned that off, will record it next time, just click around in the settings either in "Table PC Settings" or "Pen Tablet Properties", there is a checkbox for it somewhere, good luck.
