I found a way to disable Wacom circle in Photoshop CC; you know that annoying clockwise turning circle that pops up in in Photoshop CC.
While it’s handy to have brush settings available when right clicking, with pen this doesn’t really work. It’s rather annoying and destroys usability of Wacom Tablet in Photoshop.
The fix is to go to Control Panel, Ease of Access Center and click Make touch and tablets easier to use.
Under “See also” there is “Make touch easier to use”. Click that and there is the option for “Press and hold”. Select it and press Settings… There, uncheck “Enable press and hold for right-clicking”. Voila!! A way to disable wacom circle in Photoshop!
This works in the current version of Windows 10. I have heard reports that sometimes Windows resets this setting so it maybe necessary to get back in there and change it back when OS is updated.
It is also possible to disable “Use Windows Ink” in Wacom Tablet Properties, but this will cause Photoshop CC to stop recognizing Wacom tablet pressure so this really wasn’t a fix.
I am using Wacom Intuos Pro M (2014) model. I am not sure if this fix helps users of other tablets, but it’s certainly worth a try.
Also make sure that you have latest drivers for your Wacom tablet from Wacom site.
The first useful advice on this! Thank you!
EVERYBODY check this out as well, a classic graphic that has saved me over the years, always revisited, always works….
MOTHER —-ING THANK YOU
Thank you! A very clear and instructional guide.
I’m glad I was helpful. I really suffered from the issue in Windows 10 with my Wacom..
this didn’t work, the one that worked for me is something about changing the reg files, but can’t remember what was
I had found this setting under pen settings, and disabling it there had no effect. THIS worked!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
I wish I was rich. I would give you everything.
Your a credit to your family! Salute!
You are my HERO. This has been plaguing me for months!
thank you so much !!
Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!
PRAISE THE LORD!
NOTE: On my PC there was no section titled Make Touch and Tablets Easier in the Ease of Access directory. Instead, in All Control Panel Items there is a button titled Pen and Touch where you can find the settings needed to make the change.
Thank you so much! This annoying circle was driving me crazy
OH BLESS THIS POST
I just got a new computer and I forgot how I turned it off before. It was driving me nuts.
Thank you 🙂
Thanks! This definitely did the trick!
Oh thank GOODNESS! I couldn’t find this setting in the Pen And Touch Settings anymore! Why are they hiding it when MOST people HATE this feature! Windows Pen + Ink is AWFUL for graphics tablets! It ruins my flow, causes errors with the intended program from Wacom, and doesn’t add anything to the game lol!
Thanks a lot, ridiulous how hidden this is…
It didn’t work yet to me.
But I found another setting doing the same : Settings/Devices/Pen and Windows Ink/”Show suggested apps”
Disable such option to get rid of a “type 1” circle, the most annoying.
Such circle appeared after a Windows 10 Update, June 2018
you’re the only one who had the solution that works on my laptop. bless your soul.💖❣💟💞💘💝💜💕💖💝
Thanks man a lot, I almost gave up on my graphic career because of this “feature”.. 😀
Same here. This worked! Registry changes had no effect. Pen and touch settings are not there if you don’t have a touch screen and unticking use windows ink loses the pen pressure.
Love you for this..!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
yeeeaaah! works, no more stupid right-click detections!
My gosh! Thank you!
Thank you very much!!!
Dude , I love you.
Dude , I love you!!
You are a legend.
The first solution that works!
The years of pain, gone.
Thanks a ton. Very clear cut. I had to do the fix before, and I just completely forgot after purchasing a new computer.
Bookmarking this forever. THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!!!! Tablet really is unusable when trying to paint digitally or do complicated selections good grief what a silly thing to have on by default. Saved my butt you did 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you, I can’t belive there was a second place with the same exact setting. You saved my sanity.
Hurrah, the first to work. I have a small Bamboo pen and was just not using it at all for the constant circle and pop ups ruining anything I tried to do.
fucking none of this works
It appears that Windows has changed things up, as with the current Windows 10 version, 1903, things have changed from your excellent directions. There is no “See Also” in the “Ease of Access Center”, and searching “Make Touch Easier to Use” results nothing.
I’ve searched around in “Devices” > “Pen and Windows Ink”, and I suspect there is some setting here which may correspond with the fix which you’ve described. Do you, or anyone, have any input or update? Thanks!
Found it. hit winkey+R, type:
Rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL tabletpc.cpl
This will bring up the Pen and Touch window. Click on “Press and hold” then Settings.
Uncheck “Enable Press and hold for rightclicking”
You’re welcome. I accept fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.
This one worked for me. Thank you!
Device is Surface Pro 6 and PS CC.
THANKS!!!! Thanks, thanks!!! HERE: https://i.imgur.com/QBkcNqy.jpg
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! spent an hour on this and was getting anxious. How do you even find something like this????
Found it (not same place as in this blog):
Go to “Ease of access” in control panel
Search for “touch” and see all results
Choose “Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input”
Click “go to pen and touch” …
Windows is testing my nerves..
