Removing Pen Input Pop-Up

When using a Wacom tablet in my Windows machine, Windows decided to add a few annoying and not wanted features.

  1. A hovering pop-up to hand-write whenever a text cursor is shown.
  2. Long pressing the pen made a strange “freeze computer while showing a blue circle” thing.

To remove these annoying anti-features:

Control Panel > Pens and Touch

Start Tablet PC Input Panel: This is what is causing the annoying pop up asking to enter hand written information. Turn it off.

Press and Hold:  This is what is causing the freezing and blue circle. Apparently that is just the computer doing a right click.
