The computers that come with or are compatible with the stylus pen, such as the Windows Surface Book, have to always come with touch-screen also. A touch-screen means you can touch the computer’s display with your fingers, which can sometimes come in handy if you want to scroll or zoom in on pictures that appear too small et cetera.
If you’re using the stylus pen on a touch-display, there might be times when your fingers are moving the display when you wish they wouldn’t, thus making the stylus pen difficult to use.
The Settings application in Windows 10 offers you the chance to ignore the touch input when you’re using the stylus pen if you want to make sure your fingers aren’t getting in the way.
The following tutorial demonstrates how to enable or disable the “Ignore touch input when I’m using my pen” option from the Settings application in all version of the Windows 10 operating system and computers that are compatible with the pen.
How to Turn on/off “Ignore Touch Input when Using Pen” from Settings
You can turn on or off the “Ignore touch input when I’m using my pen” from the Settings app in Windows 10.
Note: You will only find the option to enable or disable the touch input when the stylus pen is in use on a device that is compatible with the pen. Even computers that have touch screen but are not compatible with the pen will not find this option available.
1. Open the Settings app and click on the “Devices” icon from the main Windows Settings menu.
2. From Device’s left side, click on “Pen & Windows Ink” and then check or uncheck the box next to where it says “Ignore touch input when I’m using my pen.”
You can now close the Settings app.
