Disable Tablet PC Input Panel in Windows 7

If you have a desktop computer, you can use a tablet input device to get write directly into various applications as if you are writing with a pen. With Tablet PC Input Panel, you can use the writing pad to convert your handwriting into typed text. Once the Tablet PC Input Panel starts, it always stays on your screen and docks on the left edge of your screen side. You can disable Tablet PC Input Panel from staying on your computer screen. Here is how :

  1. In the Tablet PC Input Panel, choose Tools → Options.

  2. Select the Opening tab in the Options window if not pre-selected.
  3. Un-check the checkbox labeled Use the Input Panel tab as shown.

  4. Click OK to save the settings.


  1. Mine has long been disabled using the method you’ve listed, but recently starting showing up again anyway. I’m at a loss as to why!
